Oops.

bought a Buell this weekend.

'03 XB9S, 6200 miles on it. Squeed a good deal on it. Should be fun this summer.

It was 8 degrees the day I bought it, and I wouldn't buy a bike without a test ride. 20 miles watching for ice patches was fun. I returned back the PO's with ice in my beard.

Congrats on the Buell, I think you'll enjoy it. I only have a few street miles on an XB9 but I've done a couple of 20 minute track session on an XB9 that was set up for racing. What they lack on the top end they make up for late braking and drive out of the corner. Of course, it was no match for my RC51 Racebike but still a competitive bike in the HW Twins class with the right rider.

I'm not sure that they offer these for a Buell or what perches Buell actually uses, but I do HIGHLY RECOMMEND these levers!! I bought the shorties for my supermoto and they're of very high quality, affordable, and built a little thicker than some of their competitors levers.. The spring loaded bending/foldaway feature is just too cool...

EDIT: It looks like they only offer offroad products after all..

Seems like they make some neat stuff, never heard of them before.
