Not sure how I feel about this. There IS something about being able to operate a clutch, match revs on a down shift and be smooth that is appealing. On the other hand, I can see how on touring and commuter bikes this could be attractive. Not sure how well it will work for sport bike and racing applications, but I'm sure we will find out very shortly.

I was contacted by an artist from the UK named Billy, just Billy, he has some pretty cool prints available for Ducati and Triumph lovers. The price isn't bad, £45 which includes shipping. Here is a cool twist though. If you buy a print, you are automatically entered into a drawing to win the original oil on canvas. All monies go to the artist, Rumblestrip.net has no financial interest in this. If you like the Ducati print you can purchase it here:
and if you are into Triumph's you can purchase that one here:
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.
