Buell Bliss
 
Bought my first 2006 Uly in 2007 with barely 2k on the clock. Did some stuff to it, and rode the wheels off of it. Then that fateful day in late 2008, when I interacted with a furry woodland creature on the way home from work, and totaled it and myself. Had a few different bikes since and recently traded a cherry 2004 ZRX1200 for another 2006 Uly. I forgot how much of an amazing, quirky, fun bike it is. If you haven't spent some time with one, and you have a pulse, i suggest you do, or you are missing out....:D

Just think how many would be out there on the roads right now if the HD dealers would have actually tried to sell them with the same vigor as their namesake bikes. Is all it took was a test ride.
What a missed opportunity, I'm on an '08.........................

Yup, I'd like to trade for something else but my 09 isn't going anywhere. First bike I sat on, rode home, and didn't have to do a darn thing but install "a wipe that smile offulator " on the door out of the garage.:clap

Agree with ya 100% on this one. All it took was a test ride on my 09 and I was ready to sign papers.

Hell, if they'd just not tried to AVOID selling Buells things would have been much better. I remember going to the Atlanta IMS show in early 2006, I was looking at a Uly with my wife when a salesman from the local HD/Buell dealer comes up and says "They're OK, but you should look at this HD Barcolounger; it's a much better bike."

Fortunately I had already made up my mind and bought a new 2007 from the dealer here in Charleston in late 2006 and I'm still riding it today.

ok you convinced me. Want one.

I'm being told that they are quite a bargain for what they are. I've been looking and have found a lot of nice examples with less than 6k miles on them. I would think around 5 grand should buy a really nice one maybe even with luggage?

Now I just need some money!

Agreed!
 
Yup, the '06 Uly will always have a place in my garage. Heck, I even have a "spare" one out back...:lol3

Just picked up a 2009 Uly this week. Got out for a few miles today, I understand the 'Buell bliss' feeling. I have a feeling that the Road Glide wont be getting as much time as it used to...

Uly
 
We have had 3 (05, 07 and now an 08) for a total of 115K miles between them.

Nothing serious other than owner/rider induced stupidity.

Try them


You will like them

I've got the 08 Uly XT. Only thing I've done is rox risers. Its a blast to ride and almost impossible to beat the price for what you get for the money.

Wolfgang55 11-22-2012 07:08 PM

Take a look at the 09 1125cr

64k on my 06, favorite bike i've owned and i've had a few:nod:

It's on my list of possibles as I consider a new bike. Any difficulties with reliability or finding parts? That belt drive looks like a positive direction, too. Thoughts?

Head over to Badweb, you can read for days on the subject but don't forget you will always get more problem threads than threads of pure bliss such as this one:lol3
