If you ride in shorts and flip flops you deserve everything you get.

Yea, I have to agree with you guys it doesn't resemble a buell, at quick glance the minimalist rear fender and "forwardness" of the instrument cluster/triple clamp reminded me of the latest type of overall streatfighter styling.



I love the look of this bike and would definately get one if they produced it.

Don't forget to wear your helmet perched on top of your head!

It could look like a Buell if you are a Boss Hoss rider with a resolute mescaline habit.

Or have your helmet dangling from the helmet lock.

You could always shave those hams or go in for a waxing...

apparently the stuff that he's smoking is really getting around. The other day at work, I had my FZ1 parked right out in front, and some kid comes in asking who owned the Buell. Open your eyes people!!!! Next thing you know people will be riding SV650's and commenting about how nicely Harley has improved the engine.
