buells

i really like the way that buells look and sound, i was just wondering how fast are they compared to other streetbikes. i bet all that torque makes wheelies a joke.

See if you can find a tape/dvd of this year's (2006) Daytona 200...that should answer your question...especially about the tire changes and brakes...

The XB12R is one awesome machine. Yeah it cant do 180 mph like all the other superbikes, but that thing comes up on one wheel like there is no tomorrow.

Eric Buell was just in town defacing people's buells at the world's largest burnout this past weekend.

Buells are killer machines. They aren't necessarily for beginners. I dont know your experience, I'm just stating that for the record. I like them alot.

I guess you could say that. Also thinking of doing the 636 swing arm mod and a Z1000 tail section.
