Poor, poor Mr. Buell. Once again Erik has to see his dreams shelved, and quite possibly for the last time. EBR announced the sad news that it is once again halting production and looking to un-ass all of its surplus product, parts and production equipment. I really hate to hear this. Buell has held a special place in my heart ever since he brought test-ride bikes to MMI in Orlando back early ’95. While I never owned any of his bikes, I found them interesting— even necessary— because the big American builders mainly concentrate on cruisers and baggers and the really sporty bikes are all imports. That was true back then, and it’s still true today, even if Harley is finally getting a little sportier than the ’Sporty with its Street 500 and 750 rides.
