    so tempting, but dont think i could afford the payments on the 1125. guess the next best thing would the be xb12r.... just curious around how much did you get it for if you dont mind me asking

    Re: Not to steal Nick's thunder, buuuuut....

    i got my SS for 10495.... i recommend the SS (longer wheelbase) over the 12S or 12R... i know you prob. like the fairing. throw a leg over them, they had a black/red, yellow/black, white/blue (really sharp), and about 4-5 12S(S)'s there too, i believe the 12R's are discounted a little too... give Jake a ring up there.. or head up next week w/ me when i bring her home...

    id love to head up there with ya, but i go back to school (rochester ny) the 1st, so my window shopping will have to wait till march. if i remember right, the XB12Ss is a taller version right? the buell i sat on at the hd dealer near school was freakin tall, i could barely get my toes down and im 5'7. the Xb12s is the "regular" height and the Xb12Scg is for the vertically challenged. either way im pretty set on getting either the lightning or the firebolt. hopefully we'll be able to go on a ride again, a pair of buells would sound A.ok

    they make exhaust for your bike yet?

    Sweet, congrats.

    So they have a few on the showroom floor? I think I might swing by tomorrow and check them out (not buying, just curious).

    I saw one of those driving down 114 today leaving the bank of america in danvers. Thought it may have been you, with some one else o a buell as well. My g/f was in the passenger seat and says that isn't completely like your kind of motorcycle (sportbike) but sits and sounds like a harley. I was so proud.

    I stopped in at ManchVegas HD sat, I like it. No gripe about the intake ducts but it could have more of a lower fairing (any)- I am sure the Hot Bodies of the world are working on something already.

    That's Jake, the sales guy that Nick's been dealing with. Cool as shit. Even after all the shit that this dealership put Nick through he never complained once about Jake. Jake's been on Nick's side the whole time. Good guy.

    If you need transportation for that beauty I have an enclosed trailer.

    I'd be glad to help if you need it.........plus, I wanna see one of those bad boys.



    So, what happened at the dealership? Something with the other bike?

    Re: Not to steal Nick's thunder, buuuuut....

    nothin big, just a few minor frustrations, that's all. Plus the bikes were over a month late getting shipped out from the factory because of a parts issue. But that's been resolved.
