Thought I would introduce myself and find a local Connecticut Buell riders group. Iíve owned quite a few bikes over the years, but this is my first Buell (2005 XB9R). I picked it up in January and have had it out several times so far. Absolutely love the handling.

Hello from Austin Texas.
I just purchased an 09 1125CR with an obnoxious exhaust and feel a bit overwhelmed. Last bike I had was an XB12S 10 years ago. So far I know it will need taller bars and quieter exhaust. Wow, now I feel old.

The 1125's are a completely different animal. Stock mufflers should be easy to come by, don't forget to match the tune in the ecm.

I just got a 2002 M2 Cyclone in Pumpkin orange and grey. First things first, I believe this to be one of the best looking bike I have ever owned. It's just beautiful. It shows its age a bit up close but it is still stunning at 10 feet. I have always wanted a Buell. Why? Because they are different, sporting, torquey and odd. I like things that other people don't. Plus I work at a Harley dealership and i want to ride the brand but I am not a cruiser guy. For all of the above reasons I am here.

Having NEVER ridden a Buell and only recently ridden a Sportster I didn't exactly know what to expect. I purchased mine cold turkey with a bit of apprehension. It's beautiful, as i said. and the PO took great care of it. In fact he has two other tube frame Buells. I got my first real ride on it today and I was soooo impressed. I spent many years with a Norton Commando as my main ride. The Buell has the feel of my old Commando but it has the luxury of electric start. It has the feel of my old Moto Guzzi T3 but it handles and stops a lot better. Over the past 5 years or so most of my riding has been on a Honda of one sort or another. They are smooth but not nearly as interesting as the Buell. I am looking forward to getting to know this Buell better.

Don't many people ride Buells anymore? I see some activity on the Ulysses side of things but not much for other models. Am I missing something?

Welcome aboard Big Jim. I think after this freekin' long winter, most of us are just out riding more and posting less.

I get that. I have been out riding too but not the Buell. I grounded it after an inspection turned up some damage to the isolators.I will feel much better about the bike when I get them changed out.

I've always like the XBs, but absolutely fell in love in the Ulysses when they first came out. I wasn't in a position to buy a bike until 2012, by then Buell was gone (I should have looked for a used Uly) and bought a new V-Strom 650. I loved having a bike, and the Uly was great for MY first bike. Sadly, I sold it in 2014 just before my daughter was born.

I grew up riding dirt bikes as a kid and graduated to my dad's HDs occasionally as an adult.

I'll be moving from Cincinnati to Greenville, SC next month and will be on the hunt for a Uly. I'd really prefer a 2008+ to avoid the chance of a crank failure on an 06 or 07.

Happy to be diving in head first soon.
