Two Years 18,000 Later

By Ron Allen(Owner), Jan. 4,

I love this machine! I ridden big touring bikes of my 45 years of ridding. I did a few years on and the Ulysses is a close comparison to machines. It has very good characteristics that are made better by the fully adjustable both front and rear.

The mo. tor strong off the line all the way to the redline. acceleration is a little bit of a problem on machine as it just loves to the front tire toward the when you grab a handful of and drop the clutch.

I have my XB12X with the stock saddlebags and trunk along the tall windshield. The Buell windshield directed all of the air off the shield and my helmet. I quickly found an shield made by Parabellum my old BMW days).

This shield provides wind protection.

I have installed the Buell heated and found them to be outstanding. get much hotter than the I had on my BMW, GL1800 or my other I very seldom have to use the of the two setting to keep my hands even when the temperature is in the low 30’s.

The motor does put off a lot of I have wrapped the header with exhaust wrap and put a barrier under the seat. I purchased the heat deflectors Buell that snaps the frame just under the legs. The combination seems to very well in keeping the to a bearable level even in the 90° of summer in central Illinois.

In the winter riding season I can the under seat barrier and the deflectors to make use of the heat to keep me warm on the cold

The front brake on the XB12X is It has all kinds of power and never during hard braking. The brake is very weak.

I made adjustments to the pedal to try and get a “feel” for the brake or to get more on the brake, but it is still very It is good for trail braking going into a turn or making slow speed

I have been using Roadtech Z6 tires on the machine for the 12,000 miles. The stock only lasted for 4,500 before they were Although the Metzler’s are not an on/off tire they meet my of good handling and long I got about 8,600 miles on my set of these tires.

Due to the 17” rim size of the I have not been able to anyone that makes a sport tire for the machine Pirelli, current OEM tire, and the original OEM tire. This is not a problem for me as I do about 90% of my riding on the and what off road riding I do I slow down and try to stay the tires limits. If I was going to a trip to Alaska I would put on a set of the purpose tires for the trip.

As for gas mileage I get in the range of 43 mpg. If I the engine speed below rpm I get 50 mpg. The problem is the machine to run at a higher rpm range.

It loves to around 3,500 rpm which the mph at about 70 and as we all know the more the less the mpg. Since the has a 4.4 US gallon tank I get about 170 before I need to refuel.

I have had the machine for 2 years now and I myself riding it more my other machine, a 2008 H-D Classic. It is a fun machine and very to ride. I am 6’2” tall and a 32” inseam.

I have no difficulty the ground while setting on the The longest I have driven it if 580 miles in about 12 hours. ride was not stressful and has got me thinking of the Ultra and going strictly the XB12X.

Other than changes and basic maintenance the has required no service. The machine is enough that I can perform of the maintenance myself, which me money over a more machine that would me to take it to a shop so they perform the service.

As I said in the beginning, I love machine. It may not be a perfect machine but in 45 of riding I have never a machine yet that did not have “personality”. The Buell Ulysses is a sweet machine and for the price it is to beat.
