    So did I crusty - people ride in all sorts of conditions.

    It's high summer in NZ at the moment - feb and march are the best riding months, although there are really no bad ones.
    Where I am in Auckland you can ride comfortably all year round the temp rarely drops below 5c overnight in mid winter - and maxes out at 25c in the summer.

    Back home in Sydney it's all year too, unless it gets too hot. I used to draw the line at about 38c. Above that the wind just burns.

    anyway, good one for being staunch.

    i'm currently in a "discussion" with a friend who works at a HD/Buell dealership and i am telling him how skeptical i am of the exhaust position. has anyone done anything more serious than a graded gravel road? any singletrack?

    No - and I don't blame you being wary. I don't think thats what the bike is meant for.
    The first item in the owners manual clearly states that the bike is for 'Paved and non-paved roads only'.

    or yes
    i've seen guys do singletrack on a cb250. just depends how hard you want to be on it.

    Larryboy,

    Your pictures are from my neck of the woods.
    Drop me an email if you'd like to hook up and do some riding.

    Bosh.

    I've only done one ride on my bike this winter, in fact it was the first ride I've ever been on on a big "road" bike (1984 CR80 brand new in Jr. High and many thousands of miles riding both Mtn. and road bikes were the only bikes I've ridden in 20 years!), and I'll tell you I wandered out into some sandy, washed out double and single track and the bike (and I) did fine! Sure the front wheel slid around in the deeper sand, that was expected, and easily remedied with a blip of the throttle or a change in body position. I even rode across a 2"x8" plank spanning across a ditch that was about 4' wide and 5'-6' deep!!! I hurried across!! Knobbier tires would be great but the bike works awesome all over the place. Muffler was a non issue, but I didn't do any log crossings or anything even close. Can't wait to ride with less snow around!

    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)

    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:rofl) ... 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 :D

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


    BELLA LI'!!
