I guess I'll never be a new Uly owner, can't afford one right now.

Wow that sucks. I'd never own one but some of the Buells were pretty bad ass.

This is very interesting. I have admired HDs distribution transformation after the AMF-Voit debacle; they truly did a wonderful job envisioning and executing a geographically segmented distribution system that was aligned with their goals from the ground up.
I also thought that the dual brand strategy with Buell made a lot of sense so they could further increase market share with the look and feel of HD, and attack the Japanese manufacturers on the sport bike market. I have not followed this closely but suspect the Japanese moving into what has traditionally been the HD market spaces has had an affect.
I am still at a bit of a loss as to why HD would have done this. I will look into this further and report back...
