2006 Buell Firebolt® XB12R
Fun rideBy (I am an Owner) on Mar 15, 2014
This is my third bike. 500 ninja and z1000, by those two you can probably tell what type of bikes I like to ride. When I was shopping around for a bike from dealers in my area, I came across this beauty that caught my eye. At first I though "what does Harley know about rockets?" but something about ... the look just made me want to do some research on it. After specs and review and comparing it against other possible bikes I decided what the hell. I have been riding it for a week and like most sports bikes its got the quickness I enjoy, hopefully with a 1203cc. Probably not as much as a cbr1000 or equal; but still enough. Now on curves she gives me a sense of unease, nothing a few more curves ahead of me won't solve. All and all a fun, fast, unique bike that will turn heads. Don't see many out on the rode unlike Hondas, Kawasaki, etc. Some say that's a bad thing, but until they have ridden the firebolt, I think they should mind their business.
P.s she is not as loud and obnoxious as most Harleys, but she does have her own sound.
