Default Love me, love my corn.

When you're dodging all the roadkill and farm machinery it's just like twisties.

Default Re: BUELLS NOT BAD EH?

Not a bad take on Buells, generally. Personally, I still prefer the old tube-framed models, though (the XBs seem too toy-like). I have a 2000 M2 Cyclone, and it has been trouble-free.

The LT4 motor was a pushrod LT1 with hotter cams and better breathing heads. It was a damned fine motor, but NOT DOHC.



The DOHC motor was the LT5 that was introduced in the ZR-1 Corvettes.

Why am I picturing KPaul riding down I5 inthe fast lane, in 1st gear, screaming "LOOK EVERYONE I GOT IT ABOVE 9K!" in his helmet?
