If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious stuff...

Wowza! You are going to have to watch your right wrist or performance awards will be yours!

Let us know how it goes when winter releases it's grip on your part of the country.

Congrats

Thanks Bud. I struggled for months with the decision about which bike would be the first "work" bike. In the end it was a combination of not spending $25-30K on a bike and taking baby steps into the brand.

So.....this is my first baby step.

Naw, those handlebars would have to be at least 6 inches wider to be a GS. laugh

That is a very fun bike Shawn, always wanted a Ulysses but it just never happened. Pat, I did have one of these for awhile, when I made up that stupid sig line : )

XB12S-TT (more of a street oriented Ulysses), it was a real torque-monster.

Looks very clean Shawn. Congrats. I rode with a friend for years who had a Buell and he loved it -- said he sat in the bike and not on it. But he did have to carry a more extensive tool kit and, unfortunately, had to use it a fair amount.
