Default Please

I beg of you; please don't ask.



I've got a 34" inseam and I'll be on my Triumph Daytona 955i for 160-180 miles in the morning. It's not a FJR but then again it's not a R6.

When Polaris buys up KTM, I'll consider getting a real American V-twin. Untill then, I left the farm in 72 and don't need no stinking tractor.

I hope they do well. I had a Firebolt for a while and loved it, but even if I hadn't I'd like to see them do well.



Seems like a lot of closed minded sport bikers hate Harleys, and a lot of closed minded Harley riders hate sport bikes. The cool thing about my Buell is that I could get away from all that BS and ride around with a huge grin on my face.



Good luck to the Buell teams!

As a japanese v-twin rider and a japanese tractor owner all I can say is that I hope Buell's kick some butt, 1200 cc's or no. The closest I'll get to another japanese 4 banger is a Daytona 675.

Same here, and I say this as an owner of a Jap 4-banger.
