Buell Ulysses "Off-Asphalt"
 
Hi,

I am currently enjoying the Ulysses on and "off asphalt roads" and have attached a few photos of a recent 520 km ride in the UAE with a buddy.

Please add some photos of your own Ulysses "off-asphalt" experience and modifications you have made.

Regards

Looks like great fun. Hey what tyres are those (in particular the front)? I'd be looking for something to use on my supermoto... Didn't know there were any suitable knobs for 17"...

Dubai off pavement looks good too! :thumb Looks like your bike was a bit sleepy on this day! Oh, and that's not a real tiger skin in the background, is it?

Madhouse 05-14-2009 04:41 AM

Thanks for posting the pictures
 
To boldly go where no Buell has gone before. I salute you!:thumb

Awesome
 
Awesome pics! I never thought the Ully could handle that kind of terrain...How about a report?

BikePilot 05-14-2009 04:55 AM

Looks like fun. Might be the first I've seen of a Buell in sand dunes:clap

Wondering how the belt drive likes being buried in the sand. :evil

I've never been much of a Buell fan, but with the knobbies and the skid plate, that thing looks badass. Well done.

I'd like to mount a 120/9017 on the front of my Uly but as far as I can tell, this size isn't available in the US. Has anyone been able to locate a TKC 120/9017 in the US?

If not, does anyone know where I can buy one in Cologne, Germany? I'm in Cologne frequently.

TIA.

Those are great pictures

Ok so you have the two Ulys side by side, one with knobbies and one with stock. How much of a differance do the knobs make on this bike.

I'ts still going to be a heavy pig, but I'm curious if it could handle a slightly muddy track.

Quoting myself...anyone know where I can find a TKC 120/9017 in the US?

I haven't been able to find that size in the states either... But I did notice that you can get a 120/90-17 MT-21. Maybe that paired with the 150 rear TKC would work?

Greta pics! That Ule looks BA with those knobbies on it, :D .

jphish 07-08-2010 09:03 AM

Now that is what defines DEEP sand... Reaches al the way to the oil wells. I see you removed low front fender - any other mods necessary ?? Looks pretty 'serious' with those TKCs - but more importantly gives Uly some 'bite'. Thanks for the visuals ! Stay cool. j
