Buell good for stunting?

I heard that there was a stunt rider in Florida sponsored by Buell! I didn't know Buell was a good stunt bike?

I think one of the Starboyz rides a Buell too. Not much left of the bike after they get done riding though.

buell is a great bike for stuntriding. there are a few buells in the stunt community and everyone that has one loves to wheelie it. the twin motor is full of torque in all the right places. i would recomend changing the belt drive to chain drive though.

Why would you take a such a sweet bike and beat it up for a few wheelies?? it just doesnt make any sence to me. ill never understand you stunt dudes. kinda lame if you think about it. time to grow up and ride a bike the way its suppose to be ridden dont think?

I think they are pretty cool. Never ridden one. The funny thing though, is that the few times I did track days the Buells were crashing at an alarming rate. I'm sure it has to do with the rider but it was a little disconterting.

You don't need to "beat up" a bike to pull a wheelie....most modern sport bikes will do it with ease. I have to try not to wheelie on my CBR. With just a little too much throttle, the front end wants to come up everywhere...
