My Mistress

My Mistress

She rides like a wild Mustang
Rumbling, shaking, and growling, acting anxious to go, up to 2000 rpm, above which it smoothes out quick and the power pours on. Then it will pull you hard as you twist your right hand above 4K rpm
I'm a camping fool, that loves to ride, and this bike is the perfect moto-camping machine for me.



2008 Buell Ulysses XB12XT
1203 stock cc
stock exhaust and wheels
slightly improved inhaling, with PCV breather re-route

Factory hard luggage with ample room and water tight seals. With keyed easy removal latches and carry handles.
Room for additional large load behind rider, with tie downs on the Triple Tail

Cal Sci Tall windshield with rubber mounts
Custom Corbin Touring seat
Stock heated grips
Three fused direct 12V power connectors under left side of the seat
- Battery Tender connection
- 12 V always-on power outlet
- Tour Master connection for heated vest

Additional 2 more stock 12V power outlets switched to ignition

Additional matching red Cortech tank bag ( including Bluetooth MP3 player to Bluetooth speaker helmets, and Palm TomTom GPS Navigation)
Additional Acerbis metal hand guards with Plastic face fronts

See and be seen - It's also a night riding machine

Front





- Additional Clearwater 15 W High Power LED Super Bright driving lights with custom amber lenses


Rear




- Additional 10 LED Piranha Red running & stop light
- Additional reflective safety green Chevron markings taped on rear of saddle bags

Side
- Additional 19 Amber LED running and turn signal light on each side under grip area. See front photo.

Cockpit - So you know what's going on around you




From the right...
- Analog Altimeter
- Digital Compass
- Analog oil sump temperature gauge
- Digital bike computer with: +/- 0.5 mph speed, max. speed, average speed, bike odometer, trip odometer, riding time clock, road slope in % grade, max. % road grade, vertical distance climbed, digital deg. C thermometer.
- Analog deg. F thermometer
All back or front lit with focused white LED's

Run Super grippy Dunlop or Michelin all weather tires so it can handle all road conditions

Dedicated third trip odometer, for miles run on low fuel.

This baby has taken me all over. Carrying a full load while being able to blast past law abiding drivers.

You gotta back off while accelerating in 1st or 2nd if you want to keep the front wheel down.





Stories? If she could talk.....well, I'd quickly have to shut her up
What to say....Put on 26,000 miles the first year, and this year is keeping up at the same pace. Got her new in 10/09. From 110 deg. F near Quincy, CA to 31 deg. F coming out at the East side of the Eisenhower Tunnel in Colorado in a blizzard.
Never been down...keep our fingers crossed
Now the bad - Been in for Warranty work 5 times in only 17 months. I won't go into that.....use your imagination

Hey


I'm new to forums, blogs, posts, threads, etc.. Once I'm told though, I'll figure it out and never need to ask again.

So, where do I post my BOTM entry?
How do members vote?
The far right side of the page show 7 threads and 6 posts, for the BOTM....

Where do I find them?

as you can see, I posted my 08 Uly, somewhere.....but I don't see any other posts? threads? entries.

Please take a minutes to explain the diff. of thread, and post. and what the quote and multi quote functions are for, Examples of all the major basic functions of the Forum, as I mentioned some, would be Fantastic!!!!

Thank you in advance
