Hi All,

Just got my first XB12R after lusting after them for years ! I live on a little rock in the middle of the Irish Sea called the Isle of Man, a bikers paradise that goes nuts for a few weeks in the summer. Love it and looking forward to a few laps of the TT course over the next week or so.

I have not seen any other Buells on the island apart from at TT or GP time, so my question is are there any other members on the Isle of Man.

Cheers

You didn't see this guy did you ? http://ukbeg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=22418 though with the red calliper and black forks I'd say it used to be an 1125. Welcome by the way. If you've got a thick skin you'll last :yup:

Is Three Legged Dave still around? He had a highly modded S1 (or M1?) and was involved in marshalling I think. He should be fairly well known in biking circles on the Island.
