The bike was fun enough handled great, a little slow, reminded me of my Norton Commando.
Took it to Laguna for a track day and surprised and embarrassed quite a few of the A groupers with my tractor. The problem was the constant recalls, i was used to the bi weekly changing of valve cover gaskets, and parts falling off. The total lack of support and the ZERO resale value is what pissed me off, in 50 years of owning and riding motorcycles, the Buell was the worst experience. That is why EBR is gone down.
What model was this?

I find this borderline humorous. I had no idea they were still in business. I wish them well, and don't mean to make light of it. But.....

Eric needed to build bikes for the masses. The Buells were not aesthetically pleasing to look at and neither are the EBR 1190 series bikes. These bikes only appeal to a select few.

Loved my 1125R's But the lack of dealer support made me go for a Pani the last time around! I tried buying American and owned 3 of them, but when you stuff sport bikes in a Harley store they get shoved into the corner and the guys working there don't want to help because you wont buy chrome air filters and overpriced Chinese clothing!
