I want to see Buell succeed, but I didn't buy one, so I guess I can't complain. Still, it's a shame. I'd own one if I was in the demographic, right next to my other 20 bikes I don't have.

I was hoping for a magic potion in a bottle solution, but this is what I thought I'd be doing to get it right. I'll be the idiot and the monkey on this one.

Maybe I should post in the "What bike do you want today" thread, but I want one of these today. Enough power to comfortably do US highways, and one of the lightest bikes on the road. Sold!

I might go with new base boards, thanks.
