Current ride: Several...
Evenin' all. I recently became the pleased owner of a 2010 Ulysses. I'm not new to bikes. I also have two VX800s, a Yamaha Bulldog, and a Guzzi Nevada 750 (VERY orange, hence the username); the Buell replaced an XJ900F.

I like low-revving, torquey bikes; I don't like chain final drives; I should have bought a Buell YEARS ago...

Cheers

TN

Nice one I'm :mrgreen: You got the last of the line with loads of upgrades. More bearings in the rear wheel, eye popping ztl2 8 piston front brake. Better oil cooler to engine fittings , dddfi-3 ecm bigger brain running twin o2 sensors with improved fuelling.
Lots of help and piss-taking available here . Enjoy the ride
