Another credit crunch victim

Erik Buell has announced on thursday that Buell Motorcycles has both knees down. Yet another credit crunch aftermath victim. What Buell Motorcycles brought to the market since 1983 has always been debatable. Erik Buell and his team have certainly produced some of the most oddly designed motorcycles, but they undoubtly tried to pull the technology up with these, providing inovative solutions to mass production like in-frame reservoirs or perimetrical brake discs.
Harley Davidson is having one of the worst years in history and that probably lead them to drop partnership with Buell. If you're looking for a definition for the "sad man" expression, then you probably should look at this video.
