Buell Ulysses

Have had both an 06 and 07 Uly.

Forced to be away for 4 years.

Purchased an 08 Uly, the fast black one.

Yep did it twice before, why not the 3rd time!

F800GS. Trying to sell it and, no, I don't think I'd buy any BMW again.

I bought a Buell Lightning last summer. It was that or a Triumph Speed Triple. I only think about the Triple when it's hot and the Buell is cooking my leg. So I don't regret my decision, it was right for other reasons, but I think about it.

Now I'm looking to add a ADV type bike and I'd like to hear how you guys feel about your various bikes.

2012 DR650. Would I? I am actually replacing my bike with an exact duplicate made out of farkles...or maybe it just seems that way what with all the aftermarket parts that are available...

I have loved every bike I have owned, I am also happy to have owned them and would do it again.

That being said every year or so I do get an itch for a different ride..


Buy the bike that moves you, enjoy it while you have it, then move on to something else..

2010 R1200 GSA and a definite yes. Can't think of anything to own in the future (which is the worst part perhaps).

Had a soft spot for most of my bikes, but had to sell/trade for one reason or another.

DL1000 x2. I sold the first with 70K miles, and now I have already put 12K on #2. Mediocre for anything more exhilirating than most 2-Trac. (I tried reapetedly). The good I can do 500-1000 miles a day on any surface remotely resembling a road.

Super Tenere. No.

I wish I would have kept my 07 DL650A. Strom has much better range and with the touring tall seat fit me perfectly. I'm cramped on the S10. And it's a lot heavier.

I'd be interested to hear why you don't like it. My wife is seriously interested in this bike.

This is the first negative feedback I've heard on the S10. I appreciate your honesty!
