Buell Factory Video

Supposedly this download is only available to Buell owners, but I'm pretty sure this link will work for you. If it does, check it out. It's a pretty cool vid.

If it did work, here is another one about their XBRR race bike. Enjoy!

Yeah, the Joplin, MO Buell dealer has an XBRR, so I get to watch that beast in action at track day. It gets a bad rap due to the controversy surrounding it being accepted into the Formula Extreme class, but it is an impressive machine to see with a skilled rider on board.

Cool videos. I want to like Buells so bad, but I just can't get over that antique engine.

I'm surprised it took 6 posts to get to this crap, but I guess half of them were mine...

I'm not bashing them, really. I seriously considered getting a Firebolt, and I love everything about them, except the engine.

Yea, those cast iron cylinders, clunky transmission, adjustable valves and ability to run on pump gas really sucks.






Oh, wait, that's the old flathead in my garage that I'm thinking about, so, what the heck are you talking about?

Cause I know you aren't talking about the engine in my M2 that has more than once put a red face on the owner of an inline 4. So please explain.

that engine is what stops me from liking them mostly as well. but I still want one someday, when I've got extra money to blow.

The engine is one of the reasons I like buells It sounds sick. I wonder if the construction process for japenese bikes is that hands on that was a cool vid of the building process...
