I bought a used (850 mi.) '06 Uly (in May/06) without a test ride; just based on printed specs. I have never been disappointed with this purchase.
Knock on wood; the only thing I've ever HAD to replace was the battery, about a month after I took possession of the bike. Other than normal wear and maintenance items, oh and tires (they only last about 5k mi.)
It is, by fa,r the most fun street bike I've ever owned.
