I did a demo ride on them. I thought it was pretty sweet.
The magazines gave them favorable reviews.
Always respected Eric's innovations and they worked pretty well.
Rim brake, gas in the frame, oil in the swing arm and I believe he came up with the under bike muffler too.
I know he didn't necessarily invent all these things but he was the first to put them all on a production bike.
I'm sorry to see them go. We finally had an American superbike that, right from the start, was nearly on par with the established brands. With a little more time and a little more cash maybe they coulda given the big boys a run for their money.

Maybe his next try should be called Phoenix Racing.
