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.

The motor is the same design from the 50's. HD's needs to get their sh!t togather.
THE 50's!!! Its worse than i thought. Thats like honda putting a parallel twin in a CBR600RR.

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

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 :whore: :lol:

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

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 :lol:

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.

Drive fast.... and swerve.
