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

What the holy bifflesticks is this...Kooks personal forum? Geeze - enough already!



I tried on a Buell for size at the bike show in Jan...fit me a heck of a lot better than most sport bikes. Like the author, I'm a sizable fellow.



This is great stuff! Best of luck to bgrummett and to Buell! Hot stuff!

Default Re: Services

That was just for the maintenance agreement.



The basic warrenty that came with the bike from Buell was for 2 years unlimited mileage.



Forgot what I paid for an extra 5 years beyond that. I think it was like $750 or so.

Default Re: I probably have a bad attitude.....

well, i rode a shed load of 4-cyls., until it became hard to tell one from another. maybe why i like the buells so much. XB's to me are among the very coolest bikes in the world. I truly don't see how the mags overlook them when it comes to innovative design, etc. Well, i see how motorcyclist overlooks them. E. Buell wants boehm's head, so no chance of the Right Thing happening in that atmosphere of mutual personal animosity.

Default Re: I would love to see a one year report on a ZRX

That's not likely to happen till he actually buys a bike and rides it for a year.

Great artical gbrum, owners reviews like this from people who actually ride their bikes over a longer term are worth their weight in gold.

Yours is interesting because I like the Buell and I'm about the same size as you so your mention of how small the bike feels is key.

I guess you were to polite to mention all the parts that fell off and oil leaks/smoke/engine-falling-out-of-frame episodes you had, Buells do that ya' know

Default Re: Multi-Line Pump

In this area 76 sells the highest octane pump gas I believe. You might check there.

My bike seems to run on any ol' swill I pour in there, but I stick to 89 for GP's

Default Re: Nothing suprises me

Sold my M-2 a few years back, I've gone through a GSXR-750, a 1200 naked Bandit and a Honda Superhawk. I now find myself looking for another Cyclone, as no other bike I've ever ridden has the "feel" of the Buell. The in-line 4 is "kitchen appliance like" in comparison. Of course you have to deal with the vibration issue and stuff falling off, but hey, It's a motorcycle. Ride on.
