If I could get a second bike right now, it would be a Buell. Somewhat exotic, nice sounding and fun. The Harley engine is cheap to maintain and reliable.

I picked up an '06 Tuono and love it. It's plenty fast, eats up corners and definitely exotic where I live. I've watched people practically snap their necks trying to get a peek at it as I zipped past

I don't know what would make a Brutale any more expensive to own than a Tuono but I love 'em both!

I was checking one out at the Speedway last week and was trembling mightily. You lucky dog.



I want one.

I'd go with the Triumph 675! More exotic than the r6 and kicks it's butt too

I have a Harley and my second bike is the Buell Ulysses. It is a wheelie monster. Beautiful bike. I have to make myself take the Harley out once in a while.

Get a -used- 2 valve duc (monster) .. they're reliable and not too expensive to maintain.

Amen bruthah. I've got 5 street legal bikes, and you can't pry me off the City cross. Use it for everything...



All it needs is a big chrome lugage rack.

Could you please go into more detail about what you know about these two bikes? I'm interested in learning more from you since you must own both of them.
