Larry Pegram’s EBR 1190RX AMA Race Livery Looks Sharp!
In January news broke that Larry Pegram would be teaming up with Erik Buell Racing to race the 1190RX in AMA Superbike. At the time no official photos were revealed, but that’s all changed as Pegram posted these pictures of his completed 1190RX in full race livery on his Facebook page.

Pegram, with help from long-time sponsor Foremost Insurance, will be competing on his fourth different brand of motorcycle in as many years, having previously raced with Ducati, BMW, and Yamaha. But with Erik Buell’s resurgence onto the sportbike/racing scene, and his commitment to World Superbike, having one of his bikes represented in the domestic series is good for the sport.
