Really have you done the math

Roughly 261 working days a year so that's 261 x 12.50 = £3,262 if your a Buell commuter (2008 model are fine)

I'm shit at math...

2004 XB12 is non compliant as is every other vehicle I own,the most recent is 2015.

Going to cost £12.50 to visit my daughter after 2020 as she lives just inside the North Circular.

I sold my Uly in a fit of pique after one ride where Sussex police armed with speed guns were round every corner in a new 50 mph limit which everyone rode quite happily at the national speed limit and I thought, what’s the point?

Seems they want to legislate us out of everything enjoyable, even cake.

Rant over


My first test ride of a Buell was around Dorking in 1997. The roads were all 40s and 50s with a brief length of dual and that was only a 60! :roll: Granted it was a bit frustrating, but l Still had a great time. A police unit shadowed me for a few miles......probably also bike enthusiasts. So l Catapulted up to 50 off a few roundabouts then sat fixed on 50 for a laugh. When they could see l wasn’t going to really go for it, they roared past me out of boredom probably. I was just revelling in the 1200 tubers rather loud V&H pipe sound at any speed! ;) Would probably have been pulled over for the pipe today. :roll:

Uly out 1125 in. Not sure how it all works but I'd be pretty sure the Uly creates less pollution than the 1125..65mpg vs 40mpg ish. Silly bureaucrats :roll:
Could always swap plates I suppose...What could go wrong lOl


You might want to double check that - my Uly 07 is approved for use in ULEZ by TFL and I kept a copy of the screen shot to prove it. :-)

Yeah I double-checked it last week...Mine is '06.

I was warned before I bought it. Was never meant to be a work bike but when I get rostered for finish at 5am on a sunny Sunday morning, not much beats riding around London landmarks with no people, cars or pollution. Got the 1125 still but I have unexpectedly fallen for this Uly more than just for touring now :?

Thanks for the info though :)

Kiwi, I double checked my VIN and it's a 06 model year as well - might be worth a call to HD UK to check if NOx emission is below 0.15 g/km and if so ask for Cert of Conformity. If it is PM me and I'll let you know what to do - my old 125 scooter had similar issue.

This is what i am trying to do at the moment for my 07 XB9SX but its not as easy as i first thought as COC (Cert of Conformity) only goes back ten years & it will cost to get one if you can. Harley-Davidson are your only hope here i think.

The question is how do you find out if your NOx emission is below 0.15 g/km ? as theirs nothing on my V5.

When i checked my bike last year on the TFL site it was fine however this year when i check it isn't.

Hmmm... Interesting ...

My VIN says 05 but I've been informed there is no 05 Uly so I'm to call it a 06 Uly.

I might just make that call.

Did you have to test your scoot for conformity? I don't have the original exhaust so I wouldn't like my chances with a test.

Shouldn't there be a mfg date on the plate?

Anyway, good luck with the COC. Let us know how you go, I'll do same.
