Buell XB1200X

Buell bikes, and indeed Eric Buell have an interesting history, and it was very exciting to own a bike that was part of that. I wouldn’t be surprised if I own one again some day. This bike got the most comments of anything I have owned to date. Mine had hard bags, and the pipes were a golden brown baked on ceramic finish.

This bike went on several longer trips, and performed fine. It might be better off road with a lower first gear - a complaint in common with my BMW R1200GSA - however this thing will do 45 in first gear, and that’s too fast downhill on gravel!

Much fun in the twisties - never dragged a peg. Character to burn - which is good when you’re in the mood for character.
