Motorcycle Reviews — 2006 Ulysses

I got this card in the inviting me to test ride a Ulysses and receive a free Bag… so I went by Thunder Harley-Davidson /Buell yesterday to see the deal was. Test are by appointment, and not on Saturdays. which sense because their rides are accompanied by a salesman the same or similar bike, and is their busy day. Tower is a new dealership, and they are very promotional and aggressive their marketing.

They live bands and a free /burger cookout every between Noon and 2:00 pm. also have Rider’s training courses, and a course was in this weekend. So I made an for Noon today to take a on a Ulysses.

The demo they have now is an 06, and Chuck told me if I wanted to on the 07 Demo unit they it in this month. The changes 06 to 07 aren’t significant to my overall so I opted for the 06.

This is a TALL With my 30 inseam I was very on my tippy-toes but that doesn’t me anymore. The engine cranked easily and settled into unmistakable HD V-twin lumpy I threw a leg over and maneuvered it off the and made a quick run to the end of the lot, a U-ey and fell in behind who was riding the slightly more XB12STT.

I was offered the chance to try it on the ride, but chose to stay on the I was enjoying it too much to want to bikes -G-. The controls easy to find use, and much standard in layout.

The kickstand is placed well of the usual location, an oddity took a little concentration to use Familiarity would undoubtedly this minor negative.

A for those who don’t know me I do NOT care all that much for I took this test purely because the invite in the mail I thought I might get use out of the free bag.

I expected the to be heavy, clunky and not much I certainly had no intention of considering a

The Ulysses was actually quite and a heck of a lot of fun to ride. The demo only had 23 miles on it when we our ride, so it isn’t even in yet. We kept our ride a less aggressive than it may been if the bikes weren’t showing less than 20 on the odo when we started.

It was an impressive demo, incorporating rough, broken pavement and a brand-new asphalt that been down long for the stripes to be painted on. Curves in a couple of long straights ( one of has lots of quick elevation ) and a fun but not over-the-top pace showed the strengths well.

The engine has of torque, and is more responsive I expected. I stayed in 3 rd gear for of the ride. The clutch required a hand, and I understand that the 07s a less brutal clutch The shifter was a little clunky, and I had to be firm with the 2 nd -3 rd upshift. I much of that to the limited of use the bike has seen.

My V-Strom was that way when I rode it away from the no big deal. The Ulysses responded to inputs very easily, and any unusual effort. The suspension the lumps-n-bumps of the rough road well, never feeling the bit unsettled.

The wind-flow was perfect! The has a small fly-screen that the wind off my chest well but my helmet in clean air — the way I like it. The ergonomics were perfect for me — peg placement my legs in a comfortable, slightly position and the bars fell to hand.

Fit and finish were good, as everything coming from The Company is these days. The two things I didn’t really were the kickstand placement, and the I think a pine 2×4 have been a little -G-.

The new 07s have a much seat, which also the seat height by about an

I was very pleasantly surprised by my of the Buell Ulysses. I went the test ride expecting to be at the least. After riding the I am surprised to find myself I might like to own one. As as it has the new seat -lol-.

I don’t plan to buy one — at any time soon. But nothing forever, and eventually the V-Strom need to be replaced by a similar The Ulysses definitely makes the cut to get on my — Scottski
