Default Re: Excellent Point, the pratical side of owning a Harley/Buell

Kpaul,

You should try to do your own valve adjustments. Purchase a manual for your Kaw and follow the directions. Easily done and very gratifying once you've done it yourself. Usually you have to purchase a device that allows the removal of each shim. Measure and replace as necessary. Anyway, Bush has got to pack his bags and get back to clearing brush in Texass. He only does that for the cameras I'm certain.

Default Buells are great bikes.

How fast does a bike have to be anyway? I've demo'd the 1200 Lightning and I figured my half life would be about a month if I actually bought one. The torque is awesome. Anyways, I'll stick to my heavy and slow and reliable Electraglide Classic. I've got 35,000 on it and want to see 100,000 on it just for the bragging rights.

That'a what I want to do with my Trophy, so far I've got 15k on it in 9 mos. I want to get at least 100k on it. I plan on getting a playbike like a Buell or Sport glide or Thunderbird Sport or something but the Trophy's my keeper.

What's a large displacement bike? Over 750cc? They sell quite a few more literbikes over there than Harleys.
