    me too, ........why do you think we like this sound .......... perhaps is hard wired into us like the drums that our ancestors probably listened to around camp fires for thousands of years?

    Continental has finally made some shoes just for the Ully. I fitted these last week.
    Conti TKC80 120/70B17 180/55B17 in stock.

    Now I can run the TKC up front and retain the standard Ulysses mud guard thanks to the 120/70 lower profile. These tires have a "B" code which must stand for Buell. Good on you Continental - Top Job.
    :clap

    I suspect that bike will evaporate a Conti TKC-80. :huh

    I was very surprised with the handling. I usually ride an XRR off road which is really fantastic. I can push the Buell almost as quick as the XR and the tires do a fantastic job. The rear tire being so large 180 brakes very well. Its like throwing out an anchor. Just rips into the gravel. The weight of the bike might have something to do with that. The front has a lot of grip. I thought it might slide about a bit but its very sure footed. I like it and will continue to use it off road. LOVE the torque coming out of corners on a gravel road - loads of fun.

    Cheers

    Only had them on the bike 2 weeks. Looking good so far but Im holding back on the bitumen to preserve them. I am hoping to get around 4000klm out of a set. If I can I will be happy with that. About the same as a Guzzi Stelvio I hope.

    Cheers

    I'm considering trading my 2006 Suzuki V-Strom for an 09 XT. I have owned two prior Uly's but know they have issues. Anything in particular I should look for on the XT with 18,000 on it? Neither of the other two Buells made it to that mileage before wrecking or selling.
