Hi everyone,

After several years of owning various V-twins (Harley, Aprilia, Ducati etc) whilst really fancying a Buell I finally took the plunge and picked up an XB12Ss last week.

Went out for a country road blast yesterday & rode it down the motorway & then through central London traffic today.

Seemed to work pretty well in all three environments - maybe not my first choice for the M4 in the rush hour but still a lot of fun.

Just need to get searching now to find out what the warning light is that keeps coming on if ridden at motorway speeds for any length of time!

That'll be the "you appear to have strayed onto a motorway, go look for a twistier route" light...... 8-)

Enjoy :D

I reckon that'd be your o2 sensor playin up, you could do with ecm spy and a cable to confirm.

Enjoy the bike and the site.... 8-)
