2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XP??

Let's hear it! I'm leaning towards one for the season next year for the road trips. Elaborate on what you've read and heard. Thank you.

1125cr is the only Buell I'd consider.


The HP2 is pretty wicked though...

I don't like the look of the 1125 though?? Doesn't look trip worthy either

A really good friend of mine designed the fuel system on it. Think they got 17 patents on the fuel delivery system alone. Awesome bike, Hella cheap for what you get, and its a killer rotax engine. Just make sure that you don't put 2 cycle oil in it. The first one sold died within 500 miles when the owner put in 2 cycle oil cause he mixed up 2 cycle and 2 cylinder. Was a little bit of a language barrier involved I was told.

I think you mean the XB12XT not XP. The XP is the police model.

This review pretty much agrees with what I've heard from others that have test ridden the XT. http://www.motorcycle.com/manufactur...iew-77130.html

i would never buy a motorcycle that rolls backwards at idle while on its kickstand.

I like the new buells. If I had money to buy a new bike, they would definately be in consideration.
