    Who cares what magpul does. If they want to spend their money and time on redesigning bikes than so be it. I may not like the design 100 percent but I certainly give them credit for capitalizing on the opportunity to buy the bikes in bulk when Buell originally went out of business. If anything, its more publicity for the Buell platform so stop whining. I don't see anyone ever complain what Lingenfelter, Shelby, SLP or maybe Hennessy does to oem vehicles...
    Honestly don't care what they do with it and give them credit for the fabrication portion. It's not my personal taste but I know some people out there love it. I'm more just sick of it being shoved down my throat like it's this brand new amazing thing EVERY DAY on every forum and FB page dedicated to Buell, that's all.

    I've never even heard of that bike before. So they are all chopped up 1125's?

    HA!

    I actually like the ronin, I like the lines. It's a cool concept and an interesting take on the bike. I'm not the biggest fan of the front end and given the choice I would opt out of the front spars for the oem suspension. But it is still a pretty cool bike in my book. Entertainingly pointless, but interesting.

    All it does is drive up resale for the rest of us so I'm really not complaining. Hack away magpul!

    They're selling the bikes as fast as they produce them.
    I think that statement is a little bit backwards but yeah, something like that :p

    I'm anxious to see how the 1190 does at the peak. Awhile back there was a 1125cr with an 1190 kit that ran. Placed 2nd even though it went down in one turn and the rider had to pick it back up and finish.

    Do they do live coverage of the peak?

    I am going down with my 1125cr, not to race but spectate if anyone is interested. I live in Denver. PM me if you want to go. I want to see the Ronin run off the start, maybe grab a beer and enjoy the day. Hope they have good weather. Rain has sucked big time here lately.
