Your right it is all rider, but I have'nt meet anyone yet on the street I had to chase down on a Rotax oops I mean Buell. Although theres one rider I probly could'nt catch on a buell on a track. D.Estock. Fast mutha!!!

Why do they bore you? Is it the style? Is it the lack of power compared to the I4's? Elaborate.

They're dirt cheap, used, BTW.
I've been off and on looking for used XB series Buells, and around here they don't seem to be all that easy to find cheap. Then again, I may have a warped definition of "cheap." And used Ulyes are almost impossible to find at any price. May depend on where you live.
