No, I’m not dead. Why do you ask?

It’s been a tough couple of months for me, schedule-wise.  That’s why the blogging has declined.  I really am trying to get back to the blog, and hopefully, my schedule will empty out a bit in the near future.

  1. Hahahaha . . . . well you will be glad to know that while your back was turned the statement “Erik Buell can’t build streetbikes until February 2011” has been rendered inaccurate.  Great interview on the net today will give you a glimpse or Erik plans for streetbikes.

    Erik and the band just returned from a great concert trip to Germany following the release of their new CD.

    Also . . .while you are out folks have begun to notice that the Buells are doing quite well.  Those 1190RR’s that you wondered where the motors came from seem to be sweeping most the events they’ve entered in Europe.

    Shane Higbee took his old Daytona 200 1125 to Willow Springs and mixed it up with the factory KTM group . . . Shawn beat the KTM by about a day and a half.  Nice.
    Then last weekend . . Geoff May takes the Buell to a CCS race at Road America.  In an effort to now screw up the point standing of the club racers . . Geoff, with a large lead, pulled into the pits on the last race of each race he’d entered.  Soon the work spread that the “Buell broke” and the badmouthing started . . . so Geoff promptly went on to win the next 3 races . . . by margins that approached minutes.
    Fingers crossed as ERIK BUELL RACING prepares to head to Mid-Ohio and Laguna Seca.  It’s going to be fun.  By the way . . . you also missed the 2010 Buell Homecoming.  This is the event that HD had something like 60 folks spend months planning annually . . only difference this year was that it was planned by 3 enthusiastic owners and was the largest crowd to ever attend a Buell Homecoming.  The crowd included past Buell President and HD V.P. Jon Flickinger who, alone with fellow V.P. Gail Lione, rejected HD’s fat offer to stay one more year, gave 3 days notice and walked out.
    Interesting times indeed. . . . .
    Welcome back!
