Erik Buell’s Next Career? Musician

Thursday, April 15, 2010
Erik Buell has had a memorable year. After his namesake company, Buell Motorcycles, celebrated its first major racing title in the 2009 Daytona SportBike championship, Buell watched the company he built from the ground up obliterated by decisions made in the Harley-Davidson board room. His dream for the all-American sportbike transferred from full production reality to the scrap heap, Buell circled the wagons to support the remaining racing efforts with Erik Buell Racing, with the skeleton crew at EBC revealing a new 1195RR racebike. (For more information read Motorcycle USA's Erik Buell Interview Exclusive.)
Buell gets his hands dirty.
Known for motorcycles, Erik Buell shares a passion for music.

Controversy and rumor surround the events of Buell Motorcycles’ demise, and there remains plenty of speculation as to where Buell will next direct his ambition. The immediate answer? Music.

Buell’s passion for motorcycles is well known, as is his love for music. Now Buell is set to release a full-length CD with Rat Pak Records. Read more in the press release below, courtesy of Rat Pak Records.


Motorcycle industry icon Erik Buell has surely seen and done many things in his illustrious career. After parting ways with Harley Davidson last October, Erik branded his new line of racing equipment, formed his own race team, and continues as a leader in the sport bike world. With all of this on his hands, Erik still finds the time each day to follow his other passion... creating & playing music! Now comes Erik Buell “Anthem”, a 10 song classic rock style offering produced & engineered by long time friend & noted musician Mike Stone (Speed X / Ex Queensryche guitarist). Anthem can be described as a unique blend of Rock, Blues, and Classic Rock. Showing influences from Hendrix, ZZ Top, AC/DC and more, Erik, (along with his band “The Thunderbolts”), deliver a musical storyboard to the events that have shaped his life. Erik describes this new release as something inspired by both his love of speed and his struggle to excel.
