The Buells are ugly, but it's good kind of ugly.

How is the clutch action and transmission shifting compared to current BUELL's? Are they an improvement or same old same old?

Default Where be the iBass?

Sean,



I immediately sensed something awry with this article--no iBass (formerly hereto known as eBass)! The perfect complement to the iBuell CityX would have been iBass donning the new Roadcrafter iCanSeeThru matching transparent blue one-piece riding suit. Then the truth be known--boxers or briefs?

Yeah. Living in Buffalo in the Winter is cold, but it's a damp miserable cold, so you don't really notice it...

I like the new kawi's. After climbing from a VTX 1800c, to a Warrior, to a Mean Streak, I can say without question that the Kawi is the only metrosexual, I mean jap, cruiser I'd have.



but who'm I kiddin? Victory is making the best lookin' cruisers in the world, and when I decide I am to old for the 1000 effer, I'll be writing them a check for a Vegas... or two.

I'm no harley basher, but I have to share this. My brother and I are riding from Nashville to the Grand Canyon next week. 4000 loop, or so.



So last week, I'm trailerin' the 1000f down to nashville, and one of my tie-downs snaps on the interstate. Walmart sucks. Anyway after I changed my pants I pulled into a rest area to tie it down with one of the spares.



While I'm doin' it, this fat old prick on a harley comes up and gives me crap. Tells me how if I had a real bike I could ride it, instead of trailerin' it. I didn't shoot him... but I considered it.



The Good Lord works in mysterious ways though. I climbed down to check out his old dyna. Cute bike buddy... say... is that oil drippin' there? Sure enough.



Now jap riders act like jerks too, so don't take this as a condemnation.

Maybe if asswype actually rode one, he'd have a basis for some type of informed opinion. I do like the "unique non-derivitive styling" line in your response. Kinda like saying "pleasingly plump" for a fat person. The styling isn't that bad though. They do have marketing muscle with "Rocket III" name. Too bad it was BSA that actually had a the R III, but what the heck. With that much monster torque that has to be felt to be believed, and great handling and comfort, I could overlook a few things. It's a cool bike. Lots of interest in it too. It won't turn the world on it's ear, but it will do fine despite what dypshyt says.
