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

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

I test rode a black 1125CR last week, and all I can say is "WOW". What an amazing bike. I have owned several sport standards (ZRX's, T-bird Sport, ect...) and this motorcycle is a whole new beast. Great comfort, wonderful power, super handling. The only detail, minor I might add, is th... Read Full Review
