|Problems/Miles (Please be specific):||Inadequate riding time. This bike has been in 44 of the 48 contiguous U.S. States. 37 of these on one trip when the Buell's reliability was taken to task. Bike was ridden 8-20 hours/day for 31 days. I suppose I'll have a problem someday, but it hasn't happened yet.
I spent a GREAT DEAL of time and miles with "Mule Buells" (test bikes) TRYING to break them. I've had shocks break at speed, sidestand swithces fail at -19F (Perry, OK), isolators fail (can you say 2 hour frame replacement?), DDFI crap out in 110 degree heat (Western, CO)and I've accidnetly filled a Buell with Diesel fuel stolen from a farmer 12 miles down a dirt road in a January blizzard. I have YET to have any significant problem with any Buell I have bought.
|Favorite Rides (Roads and Routes):||(Hidden)|
|Why I do/don't ride a Buell:||PURE UNADULTERATED PASSION. . . PERIOD
Through an odd set of circumstances, I get to ride LOTS of neat stuff from Buell, Ducati and BMW. The one, to date, I have spent my OWN money on is Buell.
