More sad news about EBR, this press release was issued yesterday, 26th January. Hopefully this won't affect Erik's visit to Em's Day, his trip to England is on a private basis and not corporate. I'll try to get some firm news and report back.

Source: http://www.aimag.com/american-iron-news ... -shut-down

And more here: http://www.mslmagazine.co.uk/erik_buell ... es_closes/

EBR Motorcycles, LLC (“EBR”) located in East Troy, Wisconsin will begin a wind down of production operations commencing next week. EBR will continue to honor warranties and provide technical and parts support to current dealers and riders who bought motorcycles manufactured by EBR.

EBR will continue to review strategic alternatives with interested investors regarding production operations.

The decision was a tough one for EBR as it has been solely focused on the growth and building EBR for success. The team at EBR has worked tirelessly making every effort to build the company. There is no fault on any of the team at EBR for this decision. They and their families have our deepest gratitude for their efforts and dedication to EBR.

This difficult decision was based primarily on EBR facing significant headwinds with signing new dealers, which is key to sales and growth for a new company. In addition, EBR has had limited production in 2016 and 2017 that was under goal. The combination of slow sales and industry announcements of other major OEM brands closing or cutting production only magnified the challenges faced by EBR.

The limited production of remaining 2017 and 2016 EBR motorcycles are currently available from EBR’s top dealers. For a list of top dealers, please go to http://www.EBR.com.

A sale of production equipment and excess parts will start in March.

We're over at the Red Lion, Revesby, tonight. Kevmean joined us this afternoon at the LAHC for our Em's Day planning meeting and I'm pleased to report that they've given us everything we asked for. It's going to be a terrific event :P ....

Erik Buell is indeed a man of his word and we're going to make sure he enjoys his visit to England.

The LAHC have a new exhibit, a rare 'long nose' version of the Avro Lancaster which was manufactured in Canada during 1945. RAF Scampton donated it for restoration etc.

It wasn't exactly swimsuit weather yesterday :D...

Don, it's a sobering thought. The LAHC's memorial chapel is dedicated to the memory of the 848 personnel that lost their lives at the East Kirkby base. The chapel has all their names listed.
