So hello and this looks like a really good group

So I’ve had a fair few different bikes and last was Cvo Fatboy 🤪 but having a leg issue and soon to be Exwife it had the go !
Now on a hunt for new toy and have always liked Buell but just some of their styles was a bit marmite for me.

But now looking (in no hurry) for XB12Ss :coat: and would be interested in people’s thoughts
Regards Andy

as said, a sit and a ride is worth a thousand opinions!

Thanks for comments.

I have few toys over the years
Most grin factor was RGV 250 a puff of smoke and gone !! Would corner like on rails
Most horrible was FZR 600 that would stand up as you put on the power plus the headlights were crap
Rewarding ride Sp 2 that you had work at and then it would ride like a dream
Touring let down GS 1200 just a heavy bitch with tank of fuel and bags on and front mudguard that was trying to lift the front at a ton

Last bike Fatboy Cvo 1690 great bike and did few miles just because it was fun

Just might have to hold off this year and see how this divorce goes :headbang:
