IMO, is a Buell a Harley? No. Is it an HDMC machine? Yes. A Sierra is not a Chevrolet but it is a GM.

A buell is a buell for gawd sakes.

I would argue that analogy is off slightly.

Harley is both GM AND Chevy in that example.

Not a single Buell was built in a H-D plant, the VIN number said it. Was built in Troy. 1HD and 5HD are The Moco number. 4M is what model in the H-D world. Just read a registration and no mention of H-D anywhere, a Buell is a Buell.

This doesn't seem like something worth debating. I'm posting in response, however, so I'm just as bad. I had a Buell S3. It had a Sportster engine. I liked it a lot. It said "Buell" on the tank. Let's debate over whether a Pantera is a Ford or a Porsche 914 is a Volkswagen.
