I dont care for buell's much myself. I've never ridden a more doggish ride in my life. It's most definately an aquired taste, one that I dont have.

I don't know Gas Man, friend of mine has one of the XB-9R's from a few years back, and she loves it. I've gotten to whip around the city a few times on it, and in traffic and stuff it was fun as hell! Would be a kick ass bike for a NYC commuter or something.

Fuel in the frame, oil in the swingarm, theyre thinking in the right direction. Now if they only would apply all that creativity to the motor. I do think some XB9 turn signals would look just fine on my SV six-fiddy.

Have you ridden one? My step-brother just bought the XB12R Firebolt and I rode it around a little bit today. It's not quite as bad as you'd think. Granted, I didn't get to "ride" it like I would want because it's still in break-in period, but I will know more later in the year after I've had some seat time on it. I will say this. Riding the 12R is MUCH better than riding the 9S that he had last year. Riding position is much more aggressive than the S style, but we won't know anything for certain until he gets it on a track later this year. I'm reserving full opinion until then, but for now, it seems to be a decent bike.

Man.. i'm not feeling any love here...
I have an 05 Citycross. I got it in September, and I am loving it. It is really a fun bike. Granted it doesn't have the top end of the in line 4's, but it's got the low end torque that I like. And with the short wheelbase, it corners quite nicely.
And as was said before, most people either love em, or hate em.

I had an 87 GSXR 750 back when they were new, and yes I do love the jap bikes too. I was an idiot and sold it when I got transfered to Maine (navy). I still kick myself when I think about it.
I'm more of a Ducati fan, but I'm not quite at the financial cross-roads to own one just yet.

Also.. I'm new to the forum... Hello

Sweet rat, I would really like to get the chance to take a spin on the cityx. Looks like a riot!

WELCOME MAN!!! Don't worry we don't have to like the Buell's... heck we don't like N4S, but his Kat is ok for a Kat and we don't rag on him...

Well, OK, we do rag on him but that's for being a

So we can like you just fine, even though you own a Buell..

Hey Gas Man, thanks for the welcome.
I think I'll be ok, I have a pretty thick skin. A little counseling should get me through

Hey, at least I have uniqueness right!? I'm the only one in Huntsvegas with the City cross... and one of about 3 or 4 Buells in northeast Alabama.
