The Buells i`ve bought have mainly been from blokes who cant manage them, seriously, ,, One even said he fell off on a speed hump at low speed ,so his wife made him sell it :roll: Others come from Jap stuff and "it`s a bit weird this bike " :rotfl:

My 1125r had eight owners with 8,000 on the clock, ran like shit & sounded like a bag of spanners when I got it. I actually felt sorry for the young bloke who I was swapping with, but I had the foresight to see what a monster this could be.
Even I was surprised to hand over my perfect 2006 955i Daytona for it.
Not any more though, but I've got to admit they take some getting right and you have to be committed or your in a world of shit.
Buell's are definitely are not for the person who just wants to ride a bike and so do not suit everyone, luckily this guy spotted that pretty quickly. Good on him I say, give it to someone who wants a Buell.

Current ride: Uly Fat Bob Z1 Z1000
Location: Norfolk
Sold my last ULY in 2013 to a local guy who had been looking for a nice one for 12 months within a week he called me asking me to buy it back for £1000 less than he paid me for it, I had already replaced it so had no funds to buy it back, I put him in touch with Pash who bought it off him.

They are not a bike for everyman.

Don't buy a horse then ;)

The only 1125 I ever rode was at Mallory Park when Buell used to have track days (remember them?). It was a bag of spanners.....just saying.... :sad1:

Yeah, I totally agree, mine was like that, F****n' awful when I first got it.
They take some work but definitely worth while when they start coming together.
