WTF Erik, can't you please get rid of the freaking PODS once and for all?!!!

Just when you though it was safe...pods are back. Vented ones this time, but still pods and still ugly as hell:

Beauty is in the the eye of the beholder I guess. Personally, I like it a lot; sort of an 1125R perfected.  Thumbsup

Radiator got to go somewhere, no?

I'll bet the frame with fuel inside, is a real cooker, more then likely worse then my '06 Uly was.

But I do like the look.

Yeah, I've never understood this thing some people have with the pods. They don't look ugly to me. They look like functional air scoops.   Shrug

Erik buell looks at motorcycles as if they are women. The pods represent breasts to him.

Personally, I don't  like the 1125r or this new "naked" bike at all.

Several 1190RX riders report the seat is surprisingly comfortable, much better than the factory seats on the Buell 1125's.

..which is the same as the Firebolt, and I can tell you from experience it's about the hardest, thinest seat you'll ever plot a pair of cheeks on!  Lol

I wouldn't call it ugly.  I wouldn't call it sexy either.

I don't remember having any issues with the seat on my 1125R.  To each his own.

Sorry, yep I know I'm late in replying.

Titties are pretty, and round, and fun; Erik's pods are not.

I saw this bike a couple of weeks ago and never really noticed the pods.  I thought it was nice looking.  Sat on it too.  Seat could be an issue on long rides, but would need to get it out and try it.
