I did that when I was fitting the windshield, I was putting a bit more tension on it than it really wanted when I was figuring out the original layout.

The good news is, the crack has not grown in the years of use.

Broken belt! Fortunately I was only about 20 miles from home. The belt had about 37,000 miles on it, so I'm not complaining. I'd just pulled onto a highway and was accelerating moderately hard in first. About the time the engine hit the torque peak (maybe 4000 RPM?), it let go.

Cry Well... I guess I'm out of the club

Thieves made off with my bike during a thunderstorm last week. (A little Buell irony.)

Gone, but not forgotten. Lots of great memories in the last 7 years.

Ouch. Mine let go about 1300 miles from home in June. Thankfully Erik made it easy to change.



Also - sorry to hear about your disappeared Buell, Roostre. Thieves suck. Hopefully your next ride is even half as fun as the Ulysses :)

I lost mine last week, but only ~100 miles from home so not that big of a deal. I carry a spare when touring, but not on local rides.

Not suprising you picked up a Buell, nor the absolute class of your displayed photo fotoguzzi.

Big twins and cameras, not a bad combo...

That sucks. I thought everybody in Utah was honest. Well, you got your money's worth, that's for sure, nobody I know beats a bike like you...with the possible exception of Pluric. So what's next? You're SURELY gonna replace it with something. I smell something orange.....

Not real sure... the orange you smell is my dirt bikes!
Pluric seems to think I need a Tenere... almost afraid to accept his offer to take his for a spin!!

Went to South Valley Motorsports and sat on the Tenere... it seems much heavier than the Uly. Also jumped on a Versys; it had the Uly *feel*, but I'm not sure I could be happy long term with 54 HP.

There is an '06 Uly for sale locally that only has 5400 miles on it!! I may take a look at it in a few weeks when I really have time. Its an '06 and I really don't want one that may have a front rod bearing failure in its future. (And you and I both know this is not am internet myth.)

Not in a hurry to buy, so I can enjoy the process of looking again.

New sneakers on on the '09 today. Whooo-hooo!

So nice to go from well-clapped D616's to fresh Diablos.
