Yes, it's great. I can't imagine anything that will garner more votes for Bush than Kook antagonizing people with his stupid links.

Default Re: Long term reliability of Buell lightning?

...My 98 S1W had a slew of problems and defects... I hardly got 1,000 miles on it before I sorted it out enough to sell it... Newer one's I've heard are higher quality... I won't ever find out personally though... Since the '98s1w I've owned three ducati's (still own two of them M900sie, 750ssie)... A Monster 620ie at 383 pounds and 61 hp stock is a good starting place for a real fun ride... And used 750's are about the same performance wise... Either one could be had for half of a XB9, and personally I feel the "cool factor" and refinement of the Ducati outweigh the Buell... Different in every sense? I'd agree, including common sense.

Default Re: More jealousy!

I don't think there will be any story. Yosef already did a superb review on this bike.



I think Sean just wants to throw it on the dyno so we can have some pretty sound effects.



The bike just sounds incredible and like Yosef said I have no idea how this thing is street legal being this loud.

I ride a 2002 ZX-6E Kawasaki and it is comfortable and low seat height. I have 29" inseam and can put both feet flat on the ground at stop lights. Current name is ZZR 600 for this bike. Dead reliable, great ride, fast and great gas mileage, usually over 50 mpg on REGULAR 87 octane gas. I owned a ZZR 400 for three years in Japan (same bike, smaller bore and stroke) and put over 25,000 miles on it with great overall results. The current ZZR 600 is less than a Buell by $4,000 or so!

Default Re: Why that one?

E buell himself says difference is like between a small block Corvette and a big-block one, and in a bike as small as xb I just like the freer-spinning, higher revving feel of the 9. with the race kit, doesn't seem to give up a helluva lot of power either. (also i am a cheapskate.)
