2008 Buell XB12R

Someone try to talk me out of buying one. Else, I might have to be the target of HD hate and bike hate!

But really, I love the bikes; I want to see why people hate them so much.

Discuss!

Republic Harley Davidson on 59 South does it. They let u rent three bikes in one day for like $100 or so. And I'm pretty sure they have Buell's there.

if you get one, be sure you have enough $$$ to put a big ol' supercharger on that bish. Then we wouldnt hate on you as much.

I guess if you like the torque, handling, loudness, brakes, naked/streetfighter look, etc. of the Buell then go for it...

Otherwise...



If your is REALLY SMALL...then get a Gixxer.
