Two Wheel Tuesday Erik Buell

Erik Buell is a very polarizing person in the motorcycle world, you either love him or you loath him, there are very few people in the middle.  People who buy Buell's tend to treat Erik with a reverence normally associated with a diety.  Erik Buell has been called the Jim Jones of the motorcycle world.

This past weekend Erik had members of the media and some others out to his "shed" where he build some of his first motorcycles.  Watch these three videos and decide for yourself where you fall.

Really intresting video Duke. I did not know just how far ahead of the game he was. I knew his plans for the fuel in the frame idea's but did not know they went back as far as 89 !

Good video links. Thanks again. Good #95 podcast aswell.

Eric, why did you ignore the obvious? America wants a throaty, V-twin cafe racer not a race winner. Obviously this should have entered your perception at an earlier date given the fact that so many desire a rumbling V that does not need to be necessarily on a world class of competition since most of us fall far short of this wanting only reliability and an old world appeal, for lack of a better term- perhaps your marketing resources are too biased along with the Harley old world intent? Build an Egli- framed, Vincent look alike but don't make them so ubiquitous that they loose any and all appeal- some people need to be extraordinary in spite of their commonness- this is exactly the point of most motorcycling. thank you and could I submit to a few design ideas, free of charge?
