Nice bike!

My riding buddy has one and I was VERY impressed when I rode his. Much more "refined" than I thought it would be--smooth shifting, good brakes, etc.--and because you don't see much bike (except for the mirrors) when riding, it seemed like I was on a magic flying carpet! Enjoy!

Was the German shepherd part of an accessory package? Really adds to the character of a cool motorcycle.

It looks like a whole lot of densely packed muscle... and with its coloring, it reminds me of an American Pit Bull terrier... hmmm, I guess that would make it an "American Pit Buell"
