Hi guys, thanks for letting me join your group.
Here's my first Buell (a 2003 XB9 lightning) that I picked up last weekend.
Loving it so far, I've only been riding for 3 years & this is my 7th bike, hoping this is the one!

Hi, welcome aboard, 7 bikes in 3 years - wow, I bet that buying habit will soon stop (unless its another Buell) once your used to the Bell, there is nothing quite like it.

The belt was changed a few thousand miles ago, I don't know if it is the updated one?
I've been looking at the free spirits but have seen reports of failures, still contemplating!
