Havnt had to replace anything! Such a cool bike.



Here it is when I got home, just a little dirty. Yeah the pipes are a bit scratched, and the hand guards, but no biggie! I took it to the dealer and they detailed it and it looks like brand new! (I'll have to get a picture)

That is quite reassuring to hear. cause we know a mans gotta know his (bike's) limitations, don't we.

What brand of tail pack or trunk is that? Does it fit over the back rest?

Well, seems i'm quite shorter then most of you guys...
175cm that should be 5'7" about

Anyway, your black Uly is great!! That's the same I'm willing to buy (as you can see in my signature) ... hopefully in May or June.
I still have an FZ6-N to sell and normally HD/Buell dealers do not take it over the Ulysses.. and a little efferre on his way

And all other picture in this thread are making me envious!!!!!!!!!!


BELLA LI'!!

5'7" is going to be tough to pull off on the Ulysses. I'm 6'5" and the bike is perfect. I have a 36" inseam, and the bike has a 35" seat height which gives me an inch between my bum and the seat if I want to stand up over the bike.

I'm noticing that the XB12X owners group would also make a killer basketball squad!

Been there done that, got the bad knees to prove it.

Hence, I'm riding a Uly to spare my poor basketball beaten knees.

Pretty good marketing angle though.

"Got bad knees from playing basketball? Like to ride? Can't fold up on other bikes? Get a Buell Ulysses!"

Ignoramus ?'s

Just got back from The dealer and had my first look at the xb12. Up till this point I had my heart set on a 1200gs next summer, but now I have another alternative.
If any of you current riders wouldn't mind answering a few questions that either the dealer was not able to answer or I was too embarassed to ask, it would help me out a lot.
How realistic is the the 62mpg?
What aftermarket windscreen options are there?
How's the luggage holding up?
Is there a trend of problems maintanence-wise on any specific components? And if so how well is Buell addressing them?
Tires: who else besides Dunlop makes tires that will fit those rims?
Seat comfort/ handlebar vibration's?
Potential for rock damge to pipe and belt?
Potential for damage to oil cooler on left side if you dump it?
I'm 6'3 and it seemed to fit me well, but what are your squaws saying about the back seat? Any problem with the rear pegs for her when the luggage is on, it looked tight.
I'm not a sporty rider so I don't really care how far you can lean it over or anything lke that. Reliability is my number ONE concern for my bike. If Honda would introduce the Veredaro in the US, I'd probably go that route, but alas, not an option. (I'll not get started on that subject)
If these questions have already been posed and answered, forgive me.
Thanks.
