Default Re: Another ''What to buy'' question!

OK, I've heard the Speed 4 is a nice bike to ride. And I know it's supposed to be the epitome of the "streetfighter look" currently in fashion. But I have to say it's got to be the damn-ugliest motorcycle I've ever laid eyes on, with the possible exception of the even-uglier Speed Triple. Every time I see one of those bug-eyed things on the road I feel like calling an exterminator.



There, I said it. Now go ahead and flame away. I'm not condemning the bike -- any bike that's good to ride is a good bike in my book. But when it comes to looks -- who let this thing out the door???

Those quotes are all the manufacturers claims which are generally crank inspired ponies.

Yes, because XB Lightnings are not specifically mentioned on that site you offered, they must run like swiss watches. Its just every other model of buell that is a POS.



Funny, I can't think of any other current bike maker that has such a poor reputation for quality. It must be a conspiracy to soil the buell name.



But the "new ones" are different, really.....



Maybe, but I'd wait a few more years to see if the "new ones" are really different.

Are you tired, or just tired of playing the fool? Yeah, that guy with the 6th grade education that said he worked for them was a real find. I'm sure all Buell owners will listen to him for sure. Here's a hint. Try posting in a reasonable, mature manner and let's see how things go. Given your track record, I doubt you can.

Write each of the individual bike names down on individual small equal sized pieces of paper and fold.



Place all pieces of paper in a hat, hold over head and have someone pick out 1 piece.



Unfold and read, that's your bike.

Default FYI

The reasons why you find those two bikes so ugly are reasons why people like me like the styling so much.



They reflect that "F*ck You If You Think I Have To Be Pretty" attitude.
