Nice bike man. I had no idea how smooth that bike maneuvers and corners. Also, nice color. Thanks for the ride.

I was going to get a buell but all the reviews on line said they were . then the prices on them are really low so that led me to believe that they are .

Well, I ride a white gixxer and I followed the Buell. I heard the 1125R is a beast and is very stable in a deep turn. However, I don't think the Buell I saw was a 1125R. My neighbor is shopping for one the 1125 and I'm looking forward to riding his.

Cool, I live off Scarsdale. I sometimes stop by the Starbucks on Bay Area next to Barnes and Noble on the weekends. I wouldn't mind having a 1125r as a second bike.

Must not have been recently. Clear lake has been dead for a little bit. Exceptin the occasional bank robbery or murder. Guess it aint so dead after all...

2008 Buell 1125R









Hi guys, I saw Buell in the thread and decided to read it.

The 1125 is a great handling bike, so is the XB line, but vastly different motors. The 1125's have some glitches that a lot of people complain about (most of which can be fixed with warranty work if you have a good dealer).

The reason their prices were cut in half wasn't because they were , but because Harley killed the brand. Harley owned Buell and dissolved the company, then they offered dealers a $5K credit for every Buell sold. The dealers turned around and cut the prices so the buyer only had to pay about $6-7K for the bike. The dealer got money from the buyer and another 5K from Harley, so the dealer still grossed 11-12K on the bike.

I don't know if that's still happening, but that's the reason for the fire sale.

Hey what about the 500cc buells? I read online that they didn't have good mid range power and they were cheaply made. I was going to get one for like 1100 dollars but I didn't want to get suckered like I did on my first bike.
