Talking New Ride

I decide it was time for a change, maybe to "slow down" a little, so with a tear in my eye said goodbye to my beloved ZX14 last weekend.....and hello to my new favorite toy.

I started out on sportbikes many years ago, then after a hiatus got back into riding on V-Twin cruisers. After awhile I realized I still yearned for a motorcycle that could actually handle, so the cruisers went bye-bye and the all encompassing power of the ZX14 came into my life. I put many a mile on her, rode multiple 2-week road trips into the western states, and enjoyed every mile.

However, I found I still lusted for that V-Twin thumper of a motor, a little less refined, not so sterile as 200hp of inline 4 precision......but I wanted something different nonetheless.

So here she is; a 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XT. I rode her back from Vancouver and so far I am really digging her style. She has that V-Twin feel i always loved, but can rail the corners all day long at ease, unlike the cruisers of my past life.

Of course, I had to find a way to break the kickstand on my way home, so she is sitting in the garage patiently awaiting redemption.

Cool Buell! I broke my side stand twice on my 06. It's a problem on them. I really loved mine, wish I'd never sold it. Enjoy yours!

You traded a Geezer Glide for that?! BIG change, but a sweet looking bike!
