Default The cry for a bike america can be proud of has been answered what do you think?

http://www.buell.com/en_us/bikes/spo...ndex.asp#146hp. 81 ft. lbs. of torque 375 pounds and superior areodynamics and comfort. And only 12,000 $ 3k less than a ducati 1098. As long as it's reliable and Buell/HD keep going in this direction there may be hope for american motorcycles yet.Kiffin... you say that this buell and crotch rocket style bikes are slow... than you say you'll stick to riding harley and victory... THE SLOWEST BIKES IN THE WORLD give me a break... as long as there are people like you in the world we will never have a truly amazing american made bike.blasta said"When I go riding and the road ends I follow the trail at the end of the road until it comes to another road. Do that on a crotch rocket.". well I do exactly that and I do it on a crotch rocket. I never feel discomfort on my rockets either because I use custom bars and seats that leave enough room for my 6'4 frame. The way I see it I can spend about 400$ making a fast bike comfortable or I can spend 4000$ trying to make a comfortable bike fast. Blasta I respect most of your opinion but this particular statement that you made was just false.

I hate the name, and it's too closely associated with the Harley crowd.
