Current ride: Firebolt 1203
Hi just bought a 2004 Firebolt a bit older than my 2007 Ulysses which I sold in 2012, and immediately regretted it. The Uly was a dealer demonstrator with all the bells and whistles, Remus satnav luggage etc. used it for work mainly, had an Electra Glide for long distances.

Curious as to the Firebolt’s history came from St Leger Doncaster, two owners, 11k. miles but last mot and documented service in 2011. Current mot advisory for front tyre, a Michelin, Maxxis on the rear so that’s a priority to be sorted, after the new helmet.

Already experienced the, ‘Oh a Buell, don’t see many of those.’(mutters, No mate, you wouldn’t only 109 on how many are left) which tbh is a bit alarming!

Now ther’s a thought,though I did quite like the idea of a JPS replica Though as Clint would say, man’s gotta know his limitations’ I just want to ride the thing on sunny days.

Thanks for the welcome
