Well, not really, I've been here before, but can't for the life of me remember what clever name I used, so now I'm Beulah. I downloaded the 2008 all XB models workshop manual back then, and I notice it is no longer offered, so if anyone wants a copy....
I am 66 years old, an Aussie Vietnam veteran, and still enjoying life and my bikes. Always wanted an air-cooled v-twin, but didn't want a cruiser style or Italian(read expensive parts) bike. When the Buell tubers came to my attention, I immediately became more sexually active than usual but couldn't afford one (Buell, that is) until recently. Best fun you can have whilst eating insects, I reckon.

Crusty was a much loved, Buell riding, Australian conspiracy theorist who was an active member of the forum some years ago. Then he disappeared without trace, possibly abducted by little green men :mrgreen:

I was riding a motorcross bike around Bunyip national park last week with my lad. Brilliant place.
