What a bike!

If only Buell would put a REAL Engine in that...... - Oh wait, wrong cliche'.


If only Buell wouldn't make the bike so damn Ugly, I'd buy........ - No. Nope, Uh-uh. Not feelin' it here, either.


If only Buell wouldn't have taken-out that two-page ad, slagging their own Product - I'd buy one.

Whether or not the Buell is racing according to the rules no one can say that Buell doesn't now sell a proper sportbike. I'm waiting for all the people who said they would to line up to buy them now.

Well, one thing's for sure. He hasn't gotten any wittier.

I was one of those that said I'd be in line when Buell built a proper sportbike. After a list of Hondas (VTR1000, RC51 and CBR959), the 1125R has quickly become my favorite. It's everything I didn't know I wanted in a sportbike. One test ride is all it took.

Glory be! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! I knew there'd be one.

I thought it was pass the collection plate. How can I buy a new Cadillac without your 10%?

Seriously, I enjoy and respect motorcycles of all types. The 1125R just works (for me). I know it may not be the popular choice. Luckily I ride to please only myself.

I've learned that I prefer twins over inline fours. That narrows down the selection drastically. At the prices dealers were forced to let them go for, the 1125R is one heck of a value compare to the other V-twin options.

Nothing wrong with that Buell. The only thing that was wrong were all the loudmouths screaming for a REAL motor in a Buell so they could buy one. Too bad nobody really stepped up to the plate. I'm sure that 1125R works just fine.

I prefer to think of myself as a sort of "Heron" or "Stork", rather than merely a Loon............
