If your paying for the bike... you can do better for the money!
If its a free ride, the shut the f*ck up and take the ride.
I have ridden several of the Buell line of bikes... buddy was engineer there, and a butt load of guys I used to ride with had several. They lofted the front too easily for me... I hated how they vibrated, seemed a little stiff on the springs, tranny was horrible, and it was a tall machine I recall....
Who knows about the 04 though... could have straightened things out?
I LOVE Tig Bitties!
