Buell orphan looking for a new home.

Since 10/15/09 and the death of my favorite brand, I have been looking for a new home.

I have always like Triumph and am seriously considering getting a Speed Triple.

Looking forward to getting to know some new folks.

Die hard Buell enthusiast until the evil empire stabbed my brand in the heart.

Well you have come to the right place. The speed triple is a great bike, and you can find out all about them here. Welcome!

Well, everything seems to be in order then.

Welcome! You'll find like-impassioned enthusiasts here. What happened to Buell was just wrong.

I've always felt there was a kindred spirit between Buell and Triumph.

Both sought to bring the very best riding experience to the rider enthusiast.

Both sought to come to that delivery from a different path than what Japan Inc. provided.

Both have a small rabid fan base that on average are substantially more intelligent than the average Gixxer owner.

Thankyou! I think it makes for an appropriate motif...

Who watches the watchmen and all that!

One of the best "superhero" movies ever. Loved both the Comedian and Rorschach anti-heros.
