Piss on Republicans, Democrats, Indipendants, and all that jazz. Erik Buell for President.

“I want to succeed for the same reason anyone else wants to succeed. I want to see people get jobs and make cool products and just have some hope back. Real jobs, real excitement, fun things. There’s too many negative things out there.”

“Do I feel pressure? Yeah. Anybody who’s raced, it’s kind of hardwired, I want to deliver from a core level. It’s not an ego thing, it’s just that someone needs to do this and I happen to be in a position where I have this ability.” (- exerpt from article)

I dunno... KTM stepped it up again and is releasing a 1190 RC8. Between the three (RC8, S1000RR and the 1190R) I'd put the EBR bike in last place. Sorry. :(

2011 RC8 (http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/668/8121/Motorcycle-Article/2011-KTM-1190-RC8R-Track-First-Look.aspx)

Sorry, this isn't supposed to be a thread jack. It just got me thinking.

Great article!

Yeah, That may be. But for what the 1190RR-B is, if it can hang on the track with those bikes and even pull off a couple wins, then that would be something else. The little guys from East Troy on the heels of someone like BMW and all their engineers. They earned that respect. Buell may not ever be the biggest, baddest or the fastest, but he is still out there making something special and unique. [up]:D
