Just yanking your chain for bringing in the non sequiter remark of 180 degree v 6 into the Valkerie boxer 6 thread. VWW

Maybe you're racing people who aren't racing you.

Default Re: I betta ya

Kook... Sean's nicer than I am. If someone said something this blatantly false on my blog, I would demand them recant it. If they didn't I'd ban them.



Sean corrected me. He just didn't correct me as harshly as he would you, because frankly, I'm not nearly pain-in-the-ass you are.



Even though I've been known to try.



Ebass you got that parrot yet?

Default Re: Excellent stuff

You are probably right in saying that one of the new 600s would beat a Buell on a racetrack any day. However, on the road, things can turn the other way. The main reason is that differences in skill levels can negate any power advantage. The other reason is that in the real world , the type of power and torque delivery is more important than absolute values.

I rode in south of France this past couple of weeks . Lots of small twisty roads with unpredictable surfaces: gravel, molten tar, potholes, etc. Riding my 600 Suzuki, I often found myself exiting or entering a corner in the wrong rpm range because of unexpected road conditions. I am fairly sure that a Buell would have performed better under those circumstances. I thing also that it was interesting that Sean mentionned in the 2005 Buells intro that the new City XB9SX was a better street bike than the XB12S. I would also love a comparison of that bike against the 600s and let's say a Ducati 800

Default My Buell friends and I are laughing at you.

Did you or did you not listen when I said if the 600 is not winding the pee out of the bike he will lose? What do you think that meant?



I challenge you to pull to a stop beside any Buell XB12 waiting at a light and try to beat them to 60 mph starting out with your bike at idle when the light changes.



You will get your butt smoked.

Default Re: One Year / 12,831 Miles on a 2004 Buell XB12s

Thanks for the great story. I am looking for a new tire for my XB12R, I only got 2000 miles out of the rear Dunlop. I was looking online at the Corsa, but if the Diablo is holding up and is predictable, I'll order one right now... I cannot beleive how fun my 12 is. I can mess with the kids on rockets and I mean really mess with them. My wife just lowsided her XB9S-L, She's ok and the bike really handled the toss well.

Default Re: Why not a Buell?

hi ...

this is my 1st post here.

i don't know why not a buell?

i'm thinking of buying an 04 xb9s-low. the hd dealer near me got some factory demos in , most w/ less than 4000mls at a price of 64-6900$.



i have also been thinking of buying a duc monster m750[02]. [ i know less power] but i dont need the power.

i love the looks of both these bikes.

but the buell scares me.

handling a bit twitchy i here,wheelies to easy, and reliability is still a question.

any of this stuff true?

and cost of ownership does not seem to be all that different.

so why buell or why not buell ,hmmm....that is the question.....????

any help out there?



thanksssssss!!!!!!!!
