Talking Bob's new toy

Got an 05 Buell XB12R Firebolt today. Official fire breathing monster! Wish the Versys had brakes like this beast. I'll post some photos tomorrow.

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

Congratulations on the new moto Bob, I'm a former Buell owner, had a reactor yellow M2, I really like Buells. My guess is you and your Firebolt will be riding Mt. Baker sooner than later. Yea, the handling and brakes are great but my biggest surprise with the Buell was the incredible gas mileage, I wouldn't be surprised if you get 5-8 more miles per gallon than on your Versys.......oh wait a minute, I've seen you ride, maybe not

Talking No such thing as too many toys

Guess we can't load large image files anymore.

Sweet. Buells are beautiful bikes. Hope he creates another urban oriented bike after his racing bike venture. Haven't been much of a fan of HD, especially since they axed him.
