I'm convinced. I have a great running 2006 Buell XB12Ss. Will someone please take it off my hands? If you have a truck, you can just have it. I need a superior bike but can't afford to keep this heap and something severely less comfortable but faster above 10K rpms.

See how stuuuuuupid that sounds? I know because I used to make that same argument when I was 18 and loved my buddy's CBR600F3. Grow up MOKE, I did.
Argument? no argument here, your buell looks fine underneath you. Is it a crime because I choose something other than your bike? You can ride what you like and I can ride what I like? We both have our reasons for choosing what we ride, I dont think mine is superior, but its proven more competitive.

Have you seen a class thats races Buells and Japanese together other than Moto-st and seen Buells winning?
When they go head to head and the Buell's come out on top, time and time again,...I'll buy one, and race it.

Until then I'am never growing up if thats whats involved. I'll stay young and stupid. Call me crazy but I havent seen a Harley or a Buell continuously beating Mladins Suzuki week in and week out.

So, your Buddies bike was'nt even your bike? Baahhh

I just mean it's immature to say "it's not the fastest on a racetrack? Yawn." Which is basically what you did. Because you certainly cannot argue a Buell of any kind, save the Blast, is not fast on a racetrack. It's narrow-minded to do that because there are a million and one reasons to ride a motorcycle and amateur racing is pretty much the smallest reason that people do it. Maybe the people at Buell thought about this and decided to cater to a larger audience who doesn't really care about what happens between you and your buddies one weekend a month when the weather cooperates. Have I seen a class where Buells beat Japanese brands? No. Have I seen any class lately? Nope. Who cares? I just don't give a damn.

And is there something funny or demeaning about a friend of mine owning a particular bike ten years ago? I don't get it...

You're funny Moke.

I haven't seen any Suzukis beating the HDs on the 1/2 mile lately. Ever heard of dirt track, the most entertaining motorcycle racing of all? Nothing beats the flat track. Try it.

Have you ever seen how fast those Moto GP 250 riders scoot around the track on Speed TV? They could totally embarrass 99% of the riders out there on the street today.

You know what we used to call skateboarders, back in the day, who had all the best gear but who couldn't bust out a decent trick? Posers.

Why does it take a change of subject to win the argument, guess you cant stay on point to win this discussion, is that all you have, guess so. try again.

Have you ever heard of the tl motor in dirt track? Its taken some wins if Iam not mistaken.

Everyone can jump on me if you choose, but the simple fact is NO HARLEY EVEN BUELL HAS NOT BEATEN ANY JAPANESE MANUFACTURE IN OH,...FOREVER, IN SUPERBIKE,...PERIOD! SO STOP YOUR CRYING. Iam the first to buy when they can prove themselves.

Same amount of times you did! NONE! And since you are the greatest rider on the best bike, I guess that means you and me are still tied.

Did you not read what I said,... THEY ARE NOT COMPETITIVE WITH *** BIKES AND NEVER HAVE BEEN. Do you realize they form their own class cause they cant run with the Japanese bike's,....h e l l o?

I' never said they were not fast on a track, I said they cant compete against the japanese bikes on a track? What dont you get? Jezz?

If Buell could beat the Japanese they would, period. They cater to another class of people because they cant beat the Japanese? Figure it out its so obvious,...Duhhh.

You guy's seem to wait in the shadows to pounce on someone that dissagree's with you, and fill their mouths with words, half the crap you've said in your post I never mentioned. Never said my bike was superior,Never said I beat Mladin,never said I was
the greatest rider, never said anything like that?


You guys seem really threatened when someone has a difference of opinion, whats up with that? Iam sorry if you guys feel like Iam on some high horse, I dont view my comments as such, I just dont care for Buells, is that so wrong here, cant I speak my opinions on a free web site, apparently not, without taking a beating.

None of you roadrace, thats cool, I respect that, and have been trying too respect that. Obviously Iam not a proracer but I realize what it takes more so than all of you. I got into this Industry because I love to go fast on a road bike, arent we similar in some respect? It seems when you joke its ok, but when I through my opinionated jokes around no one can handle it? To me thats immature. Give it out and take it in, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Iam forty years old this month, my opinions on what real riding is will not change, so deal with it, deal with my jokes, as I do your's

If you cant take it then I apologize, but if your going to give it, expect it to come back at you. Iam not some young dumb punk thats been riding for 5yrs, I'v been at this for a long time and will not change. Maybe its because I have rode the track and raced, that you hate me, who know's. But I make no apologies for that or my opinions. So lets try to coexist in some type of rational manner, if not bring it on, cause I can go all day long!!!
