Current ride: 2006(55) XB12X
Location: Leeds
First registered 15 years ago today and been my only motorcycle ever since. Yes, there's been accidents, repairs, parts failures and upgrades. Many smiles, hair pulling, tears and weeping oil and todays little ride to watch it click onto 60,000 miles.
Yes I'd love a tuber in my garage, an 1125, a tiddler XB9 though not sure on an EBR. This Ulysses though is one of the first and very happy that it's still mine. :D
Thanks to all that make Buell ownership a family affair, to Maz, to Riders and even you Dutch fellas. Thanks most of all to Erik and crew that designed and built this bike just for me.

That's good going.
My M2 has around 42k on it now, treating it to a respray over the winter. After 18 years ownership, it is still the last bike I would get rid of and love riding it.

Well done Derek :worthy: , it is also a testament to the owners loyalty to the brand to stick with it despite the tears and hair pulling. ( lots would of thrown the towel in and brought another brand)
There is something special about Buell, it just feels right . :yup:
Well done on reaching 60k at my current rate it will be another 50 years before I reach that milestone , I had planned to get out and about a lot more this year, but things kinda got in the way and put the brakes on that , hopefully next year .

I'd have got there sooner if the Spain trip had been on back at Easter. The planning now starts for the winter fettling. Fork re-chrome a must.
