I follow top fuel only because Tony Shomaker was my neighbor, but just looked at pro stock bike rankings was was suprised to find Buell in 3 of the top five slots.

Buell and HD consistantly whoop the Japanese bikes. When I was at the Nationals in Joliet, there was only one Suzuki to make it to the semi finals.

what motor does Buell run? Is it a variation of the v-rod motor?

They use an S&S Pro Stock motor, hard to determine, I think they are using v-rod as a basis.
