that's were you would want that Hailwood jacket From Vanson....
and some boots with the outside soles burned through.....
I wish Ducati would do another retro without PT designing it....
with a liter engine....

That needs some purtying up - I think it's out of my price range too. Shoot me if you must - but that Buell XB9S is looking like a mighty nice machine. Have any of you ridden the latest buell (not those old fat pig ones).

It's still a buell! Slower than a duc, heavier than a duc, rougher than a duc...yup it sure ain't a duc! ;D

Erik has the bike design part down.. but he just needs to redesign his own lighter quicker reving twin.. then there might be something to compare...I still think that they are to "futuristic" in design.. I guess I just like simplicity...tank.. frame...engine...wheels....bare necesities..

I hear ya. I do like the idea of a belt drive, dealer around every corner, newer technology (at least some). Still havnt made any decisions - I'll wait till spring so I can test ride the XB12S. I do have a real soft spot (and a hard one .. :p) for Ducs - the 6k services are the only thing I dont like about them. That's 2 per season!

BTW - here's the crash pics that nitro took. An m900 is a better mototcycle than submarine.
