Almost got the first post.



Where is the Harley VRSCD Night Rod in your review. It crosses the low seat hight and more "crusierish" look of the V-rod with the mid mounted controls and more powerful engine of the street rod. Awesome! We need a review very soon.

Default Thanks Sean

It was worth the wait!!



Thanks Sean, as usual your comments are right on the money on what us actual motorcyclist want to hear who actually ride our bikes.



Is the bike fun, reliable, easy to ride, easy to maintain and verstial? Yes, then it's a good bike to own!!

Hey Sean, thanks for the great review. It looks like you had a great launch.

Why is it I enjoy HD reviews more than say a Yamaha Warrior review?

Oh, I know, the marketing machine is working it's magic.

Great review! I sat on the new Ulyssess & it was pretty tall but spot on for what it is designed to do. I have to work during the time for Buell's chat session but let him know I would be ready to take it on the Iron Butt 50cc ride anytime to prove it's worth. I'ld even write an article for MO about it! And I have to admit I had the wind up Evel Knievel bike too

I'm starting to really dig the XB12X, for the money I like it better than the Multistrada and GS. I wonder if they're in the showrooms ?

About that Screeching Beagle VRXSE and its sub 10 second quarter mile times...



I recently read a supersport comparo article where Ricky Gadson took a stock 600 sub 10 seconds on multiple passes.



I guess with Harley you don't get much "go fast" for your $31K

It would be interesting to see how the Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom would compare to the Ulysses. Do I see a comparison test in the future?

Good job Sean. Nice write up.



I have test ridden the "Lightening Long" and I think it's a great machine. The only fly in the ointment for me is that I would like to see the accessory catalog include a windscreen and some bags. Does anybody know if the Ulysses bags will fit on the Lightening Long?
