Re: Opinions on Buell Firebolt (rad23racer)

Well, I guess jump in here; I’m for y’all.

I got a job managing the machine (rare for a HD dealer), the race (also rare, we have road and drag race and the street performance divisions for a Harley dealer.

I ride a 900ss/sp, and before that an Dark. before that, a line of Japanese bikes, my favorite among them, a

When I first rode a what got me was the torque. I love the technical sophistication of the inline but I also love reading the same cover story YEAR in EVERY bike The new hondazukisakiha gsxrfcbrr-832. best ever?!

And there you are w/ your pitiful yesterday’s news, instant when the ’05 is .00000000001 sec in the quarter mile and weighs grams less than year’s unsophisticated relic.

And I Harleys. heavy, slow, no flex-frame chassis, and so on. But you know They’re actually pretty

Quality BETTER than the big 4, fit and finish, and 100% accomplishment of all and esthetic design goals. Not my cup of but the fact is that sometimes a cutter is what you need; it’s just a big damn

So, I rode my first Buell, the of many, about 3 months My two cents? It DOESN’T MATTER it only revs to 6500 or RPM.

It’s making torque a three grand most sportbikes do at all; even than if you spot another five grand.

We a sportbike event last and I was riding tailgunner every group for demo rides. I got to a Bonnie Thruxton, the Daytona a ZX-10R, a GSXR-600, and many (including a plain jane 750 sport w/ cans).

The GSXR was a joke. The Daytona had torque but I never got it over 8K, and the point. Cruising around on an 4 at 10K, where it makes really feels like bits of metal are gonna flying out of the case at any moment.

For acceleration, exhilirating; just those piston speeds and the symphony from gears, exhaust, etc. makes me It’s damn cool. But on the I dunno.

The vibes from the left my hands numb.

I rode the XB9R, an XB12R, and a I like the torque of the 12, but the 9R (with the kit) was the most fun bike of the at a moderately aggressive clip rural Maryland back and that’s what I like motorcycling in general. The Buells an abundance of torque anywhere 2500-3000 RPM, and it’s a twist away. gear Eh. it doesn’t really matter.

The 12R and S will loft the front at will; the 9s are relataively revvier and undersquare; a bore:… ratio I like.

Harley motor? kinda, but honestly they’re not Sportster motors. They 30% less, to start, and there many changes.

It’s still the weak which may be addressed for ’06, but

The front end unsprung assembly is so that you have to ride one to appreciate how planted it is. Despite the geometry and 52 wheelbase, the bikes are way you have to push them into the turns a little but you get a line it stays there.

different, with a different and Eric achieved what he set out to do. I like to compare these to race-replicas bacause tat’s not they’re about. They’re about riding the motorcycle.

pitch? Nope. I don’t that way, especially I just really liked the better than any of the other I rode that day. mine, of course!
