H-D dumping Eric Buell has to go down and one of biggest bone head decisions in the Company's history. Other than deciding not to make a street version of the XR-750 back in the early 70's.

According to Erik, Vaughn Beals was the soul of the recovery after AMF. And he had a plan to keep Harley moving in the right direction. All that ended with his retirement, including the vision he had for bringing Buell (the company) into the Harley fold.

Sad - Really Sad - that corporate America has lost it's soul...

Not so sure it was the “dumping” of Eric Buell but more so their total failure in marketing Buell properly.
