XB12r is still one of my all time favorite bikes. It's one of only a couple I regret selling.

So simple, yet so capable and easy.

Simple and capable pretty sums up 'Buell'.

I've b een riding it every chance the weather allows and lovin' every second of it.  Inlove
I've found myself accidentally running 65-70 through 35mph corners (winter crap/sand and all  Crazy ) because the bike just makes it SOOOOOO easy. It really did feel like I was just "out for a Sunday cruise".
Dial in the suspension, find a good road and pure magic happens on these things.  Inlove

That wasn't necessary and you know it.

This isn't a Harley any more than an MV Agusta is a Harley.  Both companies just happened to be owned by Harley at one time.  


Right!! And those MV Augustas never used a Sportster engine!

I've owned 3 Buells (XB9S, XB9SX, 1125R), and enjoyed all of them.  I doubt I'd get another unless it was a smoking deal that I couldn't pass up.  Dealer support sucked when Buell was still in business, can't imagine it's any better now.  At least with the XBs, the maintenance is simple enough for the average home mechanic.

I can be found on any twisty backroad in SE OH or WV.

Sinmple Maintenance? The whole bike could practically be taken apart and reassembled in a day with a basic $70 tool kit from Sears! Lol Any shadetree worth his salt can work on a Buell with his eyes closed   Lol

That's the beauty of doing 100% of my own maintenance/repairs/service though; I can ride whatever the heck I want and don't have to give a second thought to dealer support. As an added bonus, the bike is so simple that if there is problem along the roadside I can most likely fix it with just a basic assortment of tools.  Inlove
