    I wondered about this too. Kind of assumed they'd be almost "made to order" with very limited sales locations, maybe they can talk some powersports stores in to taking up the brand. The buzz ive heard at the dealer in omaha that briefly carried ebr is that they think buell coming back is cool and all, but they aren't jumping to get ahold of any. Im sure it took them plenty long to get rid of the few ebrs they stocked

    Good point Cooter. Change happens. How many of those brands were bought and run by a company like LAP and the lack of experience in the business and engineering that made us fall in love with our Buells? Feel bad that Erik has lost control of the use of his name and the ways it is being used.

    I question the artist choice for the design of the tourer model. The teaser photo on the website shows that big box on the front. I assumed it was a place holder until I googled the name and found his designs.

    His stand alone stuff is cool, but I don't think boxy goes well with the Buell frame.
    Thoughts?

    Yeah, it looks like he's into box shaped vehicles. WTF!
