It’s not every day that I get to pass along information to readers about something for free.  And it’s something you can get without leaving your keyboard!

It just doesn’t happen often, but Harley-Davidson is giving away a free poster of any of the 32 motorcycle models from 2011.  Once you’ve filled in the relevant and required information on the web site H-D will ship a poster out to you.  Of course you’ll be in their marketing data base and it’s likely you’ll get some periodic information, but that’s the price of “free.”

There is a poster limit one per household and it will arrive in 4-6 weeks.  For the poster click the link HERE.

Rumors and “teaser” ads have surfaced on the web this week about Erik Buell Racing (EBR) who looks to be promoting a new street bike based on the 1190RR race machine.

You might recall that last October Harley-Davidson announced the discontinue of the Buell Motorcycle brand.  On October 30, 2009 just two weeks after the announcement the last street-use Buell rolled off the line.   In November Eric Buell established EBR in East Troy WI., which supplied race-use-only parts for Buell motorcycles and performed race prep services for engines and motorcycles.  H-D gave EBR license to build and sell race-only motorcycles based on the Buell 1125R.

Reportedly Erik Buell’s non-compete agreement with H-D ends February 2011.  The new street legal motorcycle will be called the EBR 1190RS and speculation is the motorcycle will be based on the 1190RR race bike which uses an 1190cc V-Twin engine claiming 185HP.

The source of this information came from Erik Buell’s record label called “Rat Pack Records” and where the sale of clothing and various motorcycle swag bearing the new EBR 1190 RS logo is available.  A teaser video for the new bike will be released on September 14th.  Obviously this would make a lot of fans excited and looking forward to the new motorcycle.
