Re: O yes Buell's first big win...

which is really close to a stock XB-12 kPPI.. What does this say? In order to get to the level to compete with the R6s and ZX-6Rs of the world...you have to spend 20,000 dollars more to get a Buel that can get quarter mile times down to ZX-6R times... 11.38 seconds is how fast a stock XB can do...This why the kPPI stayed almost the same..

You make a great point. oil changes are sure cheaper than valve inspections...

Amen, I mean... wait a second. I took my bike to redline twice today and yes I sped a little but I shifted to second and left it at 60;-)

I really enjoyed my test ride on the Ulysses. Neat bike. Enjoy.

Re: O yes Buell's first big win...

One other thing. No way do I want or need a bike that does 160+ mph. You all can brag about it as if you are responsible for such hp, when in fact all any tard has to do is plunk down cold hard cash and he can be riding a hyabusa or R1 or any of the high insurance premium crotch ticklers. Why not have a bike that is more tuned for actual street riding instead of bragging rights. Most of you Buell knockers can't handle 1/2 the power you've bought into. How long does it take, after you get off one of those things, to straighten up?

Please

I beg of you; please don't ask.

I've got a 34" inseam and I'll be on my Triumph Daytona 955i for 160-180 miles in the morning. It's not a FJR but then again it's not a R6.

Re: O yes Buell's first big win...

I hope they do well. I had a Firebolt for a while and loved it, but even if I hadn't I'd like to see them do well.

Seems like a lot of closed minded sport bikers hate Harleys, and a lot of closed minded Harley riders hate sport bikes. The cool thing about my Buell is that I could get away from all that BS and ride around with a huge grin on my face.

Good luck to the Buell teams!

As a japanese v-twin rider and a japanese tractor owner all I can say is that I hope Buell's kick some butt, 1200 cc's or no. The closest I'll get to another japanese 4 banger is a Daytona 675.

"The closest I'll get to another japanese 4 banger is a Daytona 675."

Same here, and I say this as an owner of a Jap 4-banger.
