Unhappy What about the new Buell?

Looks like Buell needs a better PR guy. 2 threads for HD, nada for the new Buell.

I saw the new Buell at the dealership last weekend. All I can say is I hope it rides better than it looks. The air-cooled ones looked pretty cool. This thing looks disjointed.

I don't think we're talking about the same thing, I'm talking about the cut down Uly.

Sorry. Thought you were speaking of the new Buell water cooled. I dig the Uly. Got to ride one a year ago. Real nice ride.

This one is a LOT shorter! 30.7 inch seat height instead of -- what was it -- 33? It's going to fit "normal-sized" people now.

Is it really any different than the previous one? A lower seat (which I believe was an option before) isn't exactly a technological breakthrough. Then again, neither are ape hangers and flat paint...

You're correct it's more of a "package" bike. The bike is actually shorter though, not just a seat job. It's got a couple of bits not on the Uly, but not much.
