For quite a while now Roehr Motorcycles has been readying themselves to build a single product.

I‘ve spent some time going over the new 2010 Buell Motorcycles web site that was unveiled today. I can’t say as I like it much. And I don’t think much of the marketing effort they put into one of the main features on the new site, the co-called… Continue reading
