OMG. Just what I asked for.
By Rob Pridayq(Owner), Sep. 27, 2008
Had mine for a week, and have fallen in love all over again. More power that I can use, humane ergos that will only get better when I add the optional high/wide bars, and did I mention the power? Faster than my Lightning 1200 without going over the 6000 rpm breakin cap. Whatever your preconception a... Read Full Review

I got to ride this bike....
By BuellforPrez(Enthusiast), Sep. 12, 2008

Buell has made some great stride... Read Full Review

By john reid(Owner), May. 25, 2009
That's right! I just got one last week and I'm already attached to this thing like glue. It feels right, it looks great (got the red one) and it hauls major butt and it's not even broken in yet. Maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea or maybe you like riding what everyone else rides, but not me. In fa... Read Full Review

Buell 2009 1125CR - Jap Eater
By John(Owner), Sep. 8, 2011
I purchased new, a 2009 1125CR. It now has 12000kms in just under 2 years (commutting and w/end rides) & apart from a couple of issues (wiring loom, stater etc) all under warranty, this bike is a hooligan. I have had/rode many, many jap sportsbikes but this is the most fun, ear to ear grin bike ... Read Full Review
