Always liked those, and yours seems to be a nice deal. I considered a 1100 but came across my speed triple. I really liked the black ones with the gold wheels. This would make a great 2nd bike for someone. Good luck with the sale.

thanks Hayden! Yeah the only reason for selling this, is becasue of the short seat, it makes it hard for two up riding and my son has gotten to that age, that i would like to take him riding with me. I dont feel comfortable taking him on my zx10r, so thinking about getting a cruiser.

Buell had some inovative ideas and honestly Im not sure why some of the other manufacturers havent incorperated them. Looks like a fun bike to ride. GLWS.

The bike is a blast to ride, handles amazing on the mountains! And buell got the front perimeter braking spot on! I have never had any issues with stopping with them ever! If i had a bigger garage and some extra cash, i would have just kept this bike, but between the buell, zx10r and my project vfr800, the 2 car garage is getting really clogged up and wife has laid down the law, one of the bikes will have to go before i get the cruiser LOL!!
defintely not getting rid of the zx10r, and the vfr is still unfinished, so the buell has to go!

I don't know all of ideas he had but 2 I can tell you why they never made it to other bikes. 1 the fuel in frame. It's a great concept but in reality especially racing and even more so endurance racing is a no go because of crashes. I remember a 1125R in a daytona race once the DNF because they cracked the frame, sucks too because it was doing really well. Pretty much same thing with the swing arm oil.

The only thing that sort of seems really good is the single massive rotor. Buell didn't even run that setup racing. 1 I think it big actually pull the bike to a direction(probably wrong about that), and more importantly I think the bike wouldn't be as flickable at speed consider the rotor is on the outer most part of the wheel as appose to being closer to the axle.

All in all I still think they are/were great bikes, I wanted an 1125R badly at one point.

Also your asking price seems really really low. GLWS

Eric buell racing (EBR) still runs perimeter brakes on its bikes to date at the races. And from personal experience, no the bike doesnt pull it one direction. in fact the bigger rotor has dual purpose, first becasue of larger air cirulation to the rotors, it keeps them cooler, secondly by eliminating one rotor you are reducing weight.
honestly the reason i bought the bike was becasue of the radical features and out of box thinking and most importantly becasue it was one of the first all american attempt at a sportsbike!
now as far as the pricing, the dealership offered me $2250 as trade in for the cruiser i want, i know for a fact that they will turn around and list the bike for atleast $3000 if not more. i rather sell the bike to somebody for the low price and use that money to negotiate a better deal on the cruiser.
