Hi
Just bought my first Buell after lots of research (1125R in Red) Its registered from December 7th 09 with 2k dry miles. I know I have probably landed myself with a whole load of trouble, but could not resist the look of the bike or the rather unique mix of bespoke engineering / quirkiness! Any 1125 owners in the Manchester area? any tips on how to keep this machine in top condition?
thanks Mac
