Got me a Buell ulysses

Wanted one for years. Buddy was selling his. Got a smoking deal. Came with gutted muffler, EFI retune (ERB race ECM) and extra ECM. Cable and tuning software. opened up airbox. Bike is all I had hoped it would be and more. Handling and suspension are unreal. Motor is very good and powerful just a little obnoxious under 30 mph. The heat coming off the right side and stupid turn radius are my only two real complaints. Rear brake needs some pads or something, has zero feel. Got the bike last thursday and have already put 650 miles on it. First real ride was 462 miles and I still wanted more. Fun bike.

Congratulations! Just bought mine two weeks ago, also put close to 600km on it already. Sadly my surroundings here in the Netherlands are not as beautiful as yours. Great pictures!

Congratulations. Don't count on new pads improving the rear brake much, you'll get used to it.

Good to know. Already used to it, its acceptable as is. Thanks for helping me not spend money on pads that do the same thing.

Congrats on your Buell. Looks like we have at least several bikes in common, 2009 Buell XBXT and Husky TR650. I've had mine for just over four years and about 9k miles. I took off on a two day 1300 mile ride down the Oregon and California coast before heading back to NE California, Central Oregon etc. The bike really eats the miles doesn't it. Two years ago I had it down in AZ and rode Hwy 191 -- what a hoot.

Does yours have the 2010 comfort kit? That does help a bit with the heat. Other than having to replace the left front fork seal last year, I've had no maintenance issues. I did buy an extra belt and the front and rear engine isolator mounts just in case they get scarce in coming years.

BTW, where were the pics taken?
