Hello all!

I’m looking for a Lightning XB9 or an XB12.
Despite being 6’ and old and fat, I still want one.
Anything out there?

Cheers
Nigel

At 6'ft look for the rarer lightning long. You'll find it more comfortable :yup:

Thanks for the reply.
Looking at specs, the long has an extra 2” on the wheelbase. Would it make that much difference?
My height is made up of short legs and long body and arms :D

Riding an XB don't look in shop windows as you ride past. You'll look like you're a monkey humping a football in front of you.

Brilliant analogy :D
In my case it would be an orangutan.

Nobody is selling an XB near me so I can’t even go look. Southampton Harley Davidson said they have not had a Buell for a very long time.

My height or lack of it is made up of a short body and short legs and my xb 12 still looks small under me. Trust me on this a long would be more suited.

Never been in there so can’t comment. Not a fan of HD’s in stock form. I’m building a sportster engined chop using a frame built by Attitude so I’m sure Southampton HD would not approve!

Seems they are not so common though.
