Cons: Rider position a cramped, engine fan noisy, blows on your ankle

The Line: Definitely worth at, but don’t buy without a good ride.

What can I say? an engineer and therefore naturally to technology. My third and fourth were both 1982 500 Turbos.

When it came to buy a new bike, I went straight to I test rode a 2002 X1 and a I really, really wanted to the Firebolt, but I’m picking up an X1 Lightning in two days from the

First I need to caveat epinion by saying that an American living in Germany, so the of the bikes that I rode European specification. Even so, the that bugged me about the likely don’t differ the American version.

The Firebolt delivers the technology for and it looks great. However, in my ergonomically it will only fit under probably 5’8 I believe you wear a bike.

6′ and of medium build. I like I was sitting on the Firebolt, not in it. In to feeling like I was sitting on top of it, my were a little too bent for and I had to lean too far forward for my tastes. By the the upside of leaning forward is at over 100 mph, the wind pushes you back hard to take the weight off your so you are balanced pretty well.

On the unlimited speed limit of the German Autobahn, this be an advantage. With the speed in the States, you would definitely be some upper body as you puttered around. I also had to my head down every I wanted to look at the gauges they were just my line of sight.

Not that I at the gauges much, but I like to be there when I want, and not to go looking for them.

I didn’t notice the Firebolt noticeably better than the X1, but I was only on a test ride, and didn’t have the curves to put either through their

The gearbox was a significant improvement the X1, although not enough to change my What was not an improvement was the placement of the pipe. I don’t ride or anything, but when I was sitting in traffic with my left down, I could definitely the exhaust puffing directly on my I would think that would force a rider to wear boots.

Even though I always boots, so my ankle was protected the heat, it just didn’t natural to stand in an exhaust

The final thing that me about the Firebolt was the engine As soon as the engine had come up to the electric fan kicked on and stayed on. I the bike to see what the noise At low speeds, the fan noise way overshadowed the tune.

Sitting at a stop I was almost embarrassed it was so loud. you ever walked by a car after it had shut off and heard the fan kick on loudly? That’s what it like.

I’m sure Buell had a reason to put it there, but I sure like it.

I think Buell is onto something with bike. After they to make a version for larger-framed it could catch on. A bigger would fix the my complaints about the and the exhaust, and I could probably get to the fan noise. I’m sure will since they an M2 Low so it would fit smaller riders.
