Demo Ride Ocean City H-D
By Mykl "Jazz" Johnson(Owner), Nov. 13, 2008
I am 6'1" @ 230lbs. It's hard for me to find a sport bike that fits. Ever since Suzuki's TL 1000R. After removing my chaps, this bike was actually comfortable. Seat is not for touring but neither is the bike. 100 miles and stretch your legs. But 100 miles of 1125R riding, you may want to catch ... Read Full Review

Nothing like it
By Peter Wakefield(Owner), Oct. 21, 2008
Since I purchased this power house, I have all the recalls and updates performed and it is the smoothest bike I have owned.

The Buell 1125R, designed from the rider down, according to Buell, is comfortable and easy to maneuver, but riding the bike and viewing its performance on the racing circuit, indicates it is just as much a thoroughbred as a daily driver. It is significant in its ability to tame the streets, roll ont... Read Full Review

Friend or Foe
By Eddie Dailey(Owner), Sep. 19, 2008
If you want speed and power on a predictable base it is a great bike. The ride really isn't that bad but you have to stop every 15 or 20 miles and take a break even if you dont want to. The main problem I have is actually the seat and the valve chatter from the engine. Read Full Review
