Long term reliability of Buell lightning?

By George Obradovich, Apr. 11, 2004
Hello, fellow MOrons. I am hoping that someone out there can help me. My wife is wanting to buy a new bike (current bike is a Virago 750) within the next year. She likes the naked look (especially the honda 599 and triumph speed four), but she is only about 5'3". The seat hieghts over 30" are too much for her. Today we happened to stop by a harley dealership, and she fell in love with the low lightning. Thus far in my life, I have only owned imports, and have always disliked harleys. She loves this bike, though, so I am wondering of the "mechanical problems" that so many people seem to have with buells and harley are just storys, and if they are pretty decent bikes. Any help you guys can offer on this model, or point to something else, is greatly appreciated!
