Well, let's see..
Really, just wondering, what was crap about it?
First, at about 200 miles, the kickstand bolt broke at Bobs Big Boy in Burbank, on Friday night, and broke the left footpeg off, and bent the shifter. I was laughed out of the place by all the hot rodders and bikers.
Then at around 1500 miles (about four weeks for me), it started fouling the rear spark plug, which was a real bear to get to, I had to use a gas line stuck to the top of the teeny tiny plug to route it through all the smit to finally reach the plug hole, and then use a double-reverse universal joint, with the plug tool, while standing on a stool, with 3 or 4 3/8th extensions stuck to the ratchet, while leaning over the fender of my truck, at an angle.
Then, it started gradually loosing power, real imperceptable like, until it had all the power of an old Hodaka with bad rings. I was getting beaten by guys on ancient 450 Suzuki twins.
By this time I had taken it to the shop 3 or 4 times, trying to get the plug fouling fixed. At the 5000 mike mark, I took it to California HD in Harbor City, Ca for the warranty service.
That's when they found out the top end was shot, from excessive carbon (duh, no kidding)..and the bike spent 3 weeks in the shop, getting a NEW MOTOR.
When I finnaly got the XB back, it started leaking oil like, well, like a Harley, and I took it back, oh, 3 more times to get the leaks fixed.
By this time, I was getting disgusted with the whole Buell experience, and was riding my old Japanese bikes a whole bunch. You know, 37 year old CL350 Hondas that don't leak a drop, DT1 Yamahas, Motorized bicycles, you know, reliable stuff.
Then, when I got the City Cross back the last time, my mother in-law was dying, and I took a day off from work, to run some errands for my wife.
That's when Vaha Bustiziian centerpunched me in his SUV, on a street close to home, and ended my riding for good, by breaking my back, and paralyzing me. The Buell looked like it had been put in a trash compactor, and I spent 5 months in the hospital.
That is why I don't like Buells.
