Hi Paul, I know you were not disrespecting anyone bike, just wanted to remind you that although XBs & Tubers are both Buells they are as different as you can get, folks have their own criteria as to what pleases them be it looks, performance or whatever. Variety is the spice of life and all that. Regards your own modifications, do what you want that's how we all learn, good luck and please keep us informed with your progress. I for one look forward to reading your posts. Regards Graham

Yeah, that's a good example of that if, when, maybe, perhaps, but, why, where, how, might shit I've been talking about. F****n' waste of typing space.
Just what the F**k have you done lately other than post jokes & gripe at other peoples efforts?

Hi Graham,
Yes & I may have my head up my arse as regards Harley Engines only ever having tried the XB9.
We only have our own experience to go by don't we and all our opinions are (or should be) based in them if we're being honest about what we actually know.
Thanks for the heads up on Tubers, I've never really had a good look at one. I'll check them out when I get the chance.
Thanks also for the feedback. Nice One. :yup:

In the interest of calming this situation down I had the foresight to purchase, at great expense, direct from Trumpland the finest uselessly cosmetic stainless steel number plate bracket in the world as the Christmas present this year for my beloved S1. If you can bear the tension I will advise you when it snaps. (I will obviously now be fitting my second best number plate).

Hi TOPGUMM,

I think there's something really satisfying in fabricating great looking brackets.
Those look really well made, I'd be very happy if I'd made them.
Definitely 10 out of 10 from me.
All the best Paul.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing what you can do with a few hours, a bit of metal, a hacksaw, files & drill bits. Yours look better quality than I can usually manage though, despite my enthusiasm. Great to see pics on the site, I'd definitely be interested in anything else you make.

All the best Paul
