I demo'd a Buell Firebolt recently at the Cycle World International Motorcycle show in Chantilly VA. We went on a 15 mile loop, during which we weren't allowed to ride the bike at anywhere near the pace it needs to ridden in order to make any meaningful judgements. It made a couple impressions on me though. The first is that the bike is really small. That, combined with the strange styling, makes it feel like a toy more than a motorcycle. Also, the vibes at idle are outrageous. It smooths out once you get going but holy cripes! It's like a paintshaker. Finally, the exhaust pipe dumps its pulses out of the left side right in front of the rear tire right onto the riders leg. The first time I felt this at startup it startled me. After I got used to it, it reminded me of being humped in the ankle by a small dog. I could never own this machine after that bit of violation.
