Well you are not talking about big bikes. In the medium big segment, under 1500cc H-D is doing fine.

You conveniently forgot



Ben Spies - Suzuki GSX-R600 DNF

Have you ever been to Japan? I have. There is no way on god's green earth they sell more Harleys over there than Japanese bikes. Japanese scooters alone outnumber Harleys at least 10,000 to 1.

Default You've been demoted

Lt. Whoopass. Large displacement bikes, not mopeds.

Default Re: good choice

I think they're pretty cool, specialy the one without the fairing (lightning?)

Don't know if I'd buy one but they're definately more along the lines of what I like, just sitting on it at the IMS this year I could tell it would be an excellent play bike.

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.
