How else is Harley going to try and keep a choke hold on the bikes if they don't make them all look like every other Harley???

I'm curious, does Eric Buell have any way to bring Buell back from the dead on his own? Does HD own the Buell model, even after they shut it down? and for how long?

Frank, go to www.badweatherbikers.com Read up mang. He'll be back. That lil prick CEO Wendell is trying to hold onto Erik's patents/work/dedication but Erik will win in the end. Worst case scenario is he can't call them "Buell" anymore if HD wants to be even bigger pricks. Thats what decals are for

Non-compete agreement is up March 2011. No more HD holding Erik back. This is actually the best thing that could've happened to him.

I'd probably give him the benefit of the doubt over Wandell! oops that was over the line... meh

I'd scan it in but mods would probably have a fit
