all hail the mighty Harly davison (UGH UGH)
one of the reasons HD bought Buell was to attract younger riders, now the average age of a HD rider is 54. I hope HD dies with its riders. HD reperesents OLD technology, old style bikes, and the brand is outdated.
the last buell is a truly sad moment. i have two buells a 1125r and a Ulysses. these bikes are well built and were assembled in america. we have lost jobs in the quest for the mighty doller. buell was not profitable in the last quarter so it was killed. I hope Eric Buell success in the furture and i hope all the workers find work soon.
good bye to american inovation.

What a sad day. I own a Ulysses and my wife has a Blast. Buells are excellent bikes, better than any HD ever made! I hope HD realizes that the riders they gained with Buell will leave but convince their friends to never buy a Harley too. I was going to upgrade my wife to a sportster but because HD decided to end Buell she will be riding a Japanese motorcycle for her upgrade.
