Hey guys! I was just wondering why you guys chose a Buell versus all the other options that are out there. I am leaning towards buying a Buell but there are so many choices! Any tips and comments you guys have would be great! Thanks!
Hey Bikergirl!***** First off let me say that it really doesn't matter what you ride. Enjoying what you ride is most important.* What you ride is really personality, and fit driven, like what makes a person choose a particular kind of jeans. I grew up riding dual sport for the majority of my time in a saddle, since about age 8.* I have owned several different kinds of bikes as well as 2 and 4 stroke.* I have riden street as well.* My personal style is more of a cross-bred style of ride.* I also have a passion for all things American. Tools, burgers, Sub-sandwhiches, Cammo, Tractors, I'm sure you can see where I am going with this.*
I have wanted another HD for years. But my problem is I need a bike that can do multi duty. I don't ride dirt like I use to but I try to find some every time I ride. I chose my Ulysses because it is American, it can go where I want, when ever I want. It is fun in the twisties and is comfortable all day. It is easy to maintain and gets great gas milage for commuting (about 50 MPG on a cruise). It fits me well in style, size, performance, and it is just flatout fun to ride.
Durability seems great. I have over 7000 miles this year in all kinds of weather and the only thing I have had to replace is a set of tires and a small chicklet fuse under the seat that was faulty. The fuse may have cost me 50 cents, the meat was another matter but you get that with any performance style bike. Oh! it also came with a 2 year unlimited milage warranty.
If you are considering a Buell, it doesn't really matter what I tell you. Get set up for a test ride at your local dealer and see if one of their models fits your riding stye. There really is nothing nothing like a Buell out there. There a little rude, alot of attitude and cause grin addiction. Let me know how it goes, I would love to hear about it.
Be safe out there!
