Richy, that's a nice looking bike you've got there. Is that a 1200RS?

First I heard of Buell was '89ish, iirc, Nick Iesnacht (sp?) of Motorcyclist magazine was testing a model similar to yours. It impressed me then as a clever approach to motorcycling: Mass centralization, low unsprung weight, useable power at useful engine speeds etc.

That bike basically laid the chassis foundations for Buell for the next decade. And that bike was based on his race chassis that dated back to '83 or so.

FWIW, It took the "Big 4" until the mid '90's to approach those sort of chassis dimensions on a production bike when Yamaha introduced it's first R6's.

"Touring" through Mosport's Turn 1 on the S2.
