"I'm going to go buy a Buell RIGHT NOW Dammit!!!!!!!!"

Hell, I'm not getting a Busa either. My license had enough of that abuse. I'll just stick with tooling around on the E-Glide and waving and smiling at the cops......and they wave and smile back. I like that.

I think that LR should get a Busa, or better yet, the Speed Triple 1050. And then he needs the NOS conversion for those 120mph throttle only wheelies. Yep, that's the ticket. (pun intended)

I could do the Speed Triple. The Busa made me do evil things every day. It was crack on wheels. I was looking at some older Speed Triples, around the 03 to 05 models. I liked those alot.

I've seen 2 ads for $5295, and at some buyers on ADVrider are claiming they got theirs under $5000. That's the cheapest, 1125CR.

I only have one question to ask: Who here is going to pony up for an 1125? If you aren't, why not?

I can give you a few reasons:

1. The H-D dealers around here barely spoke to me when I asked about Buells. And the one that did was condescending and not well-versed in the product. I wouldn't buy anything from those halfwits. And all of them dropped Buell, anyway.

2. Unfortunately, the 1125 is butt ugly (which, aside from the crap dealers, is the bike's second biggest problem).

3. I like Triumphs better.

4. I'm conserving cash until the "Great Recovery" happens, or the government raises taxes again, whichever comes first (and I suspect it's the latter and not the former).

(Truthfully, if I felt better about the economy, and if someone around here sold them, I would seriously consider buying an 1125R at the firesale price, bad looks and all. With a few tweaks, it would probably make a wicked sport-tourer/trackday/do-it-all bike.)

We already know the answer to that one. Not one person who demanded a "proper engine" will buy one.
