Default Re: O yes Buell's first big win...

which is really close to a stock XB-12 kPPI.. What does this say? In order to get to the level to compete with the R6s and ZX-6Rs of the world...you have to spend 20,000 dollars more to get a Buel that can get quarter mile times down to ZX-6R times... 11.38 seconds is how fast a stock XB can do...This why the kPPI stayed almost the same..

Default Stop it!

I don't have any plans tonight. Don't kill the thread with all the good stuff early.

Amen, I mean... wait a second. I took my bike to redline twice today and yes I sped a little but I shifted to second and left it at 60



I really enjoyed my test ride on the Ulysses. Neat bike. Enjoy.

One other thing. No way do I want or need a bike that does 160+ mph. You all can brag about it as if you are responsible for such hp, when in fact all any tard has to do is plunk down cold hard cash and he can be riding a hyabusa or R1 or any of the high insurance premium crotch ticklers. Why not have a bike that is more tuned for actual street riding instead of bragging rights. Most of you Buell knockers can't handle 1/2 the power you've bought into. How long does it take, after you get off one of those things, to straighten up?
