Hi all,
I've had bikes all my life and was looking for a Buell XB12S but just couldn't find one for anything less than crazy money.
A recent friend of mine then told me he'd had a 1125R 25th Anniversary that he doesn't use anymore sat in his garage for the last 3 years. A few conversations and a (very reasonable) negotiation later and I own it!
It's done 7k miles, is immaculate and has all the right bits (tail tidy, decent exhaust etc.)
Can't wait to get it MOT'd etc. and have a blast.
Figure it my be a little different to my R1200RT!

Brilliant bikes! Well done. and yes photos please.

If your up north a visit to :maz: over the winter would be advisable especially since its been sitting for 3 years. From what I can gather an oberon clutch slave is a great addition and if she is running rough in city then an EBR ECM or a remap is the key for that, speak to Maz, mine runs like a dream.

Many owners here, who all love em...but there are a few haters (one in particular) I am sure you'll love it.

And welcome.

Have fun with it. There are a couple of common issues that once sorted will make you pleased to own one.
