    In my opinion, that's what the Ulysses excels at - urban assault. Torquey engine, situp riding position (better visibility), pretty good suspension for crappy roads. Big bags for your stuff.

    One data point for you - I just changed out my fan. The old one appeared to be the original. 2008 model XB12XT (fan also had a 2008 date code), 65,000 miles.

    Tbone- the ground 'lug' (#4, that is) is easy to reach - just remove the flyscreen. Access it from the front and either side. No need for removal of other pieces/parts.

    Barrett - You are correct!

    My old age striking again!

    It appears the proper part number for the '08 - '10 XB's is 29971-08, which seems to have been superseded by 29900066.
