    Any time, you break it you own it, As Cooter says, If you enjoy laughing, crying, and pooping yourself at the same time. Bring a undee change.

    Haha you guys are funny! I'm not sure I can even imagine laughing, crying and pooping at the same time. I can certainly imagine more acceleration on a cycle than on the 8 or so I have ridden in the last two years. I'm definitely an adrenaline junkie!

    I think you guys have convinced me to hold off on the EBR bike I was considering and look for one with fewer miles and no drop damage :-( It bums me out because I really had my heart set on that gray EBR 1190SX; got financing and the whole works and was ready to drive 4 hours and likely purchase. I felt a bit let down last night...so I rode my XB9SX into work today despite the 25F temperature. Damn I love these cycles! Really fun but yeah I'll definitely want more get up and go. I'm really not interested in modding the crap out of my cool XB just to eak out a few more ponies; it just kinda defeats the purpose of the bike as designed I think. I will try the race map in the ECM when the weather stays above 50F. Seems stupid to mess with mapping in these ever changing temperatures we have (supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow tomorrow? WTF?).

    Anyhow perhaps I'll check into other EBR's I can find. Thanks for all the feedback. I know an EBR will be in my future if I can find one.

    That doesn't really seem like a lot of bikes to me. Is waiting a year to look for one a good idea? My thoughts are that when word gets out about the bang-for-the-buck on these, prices will skyrocket.

    Do what you want follow ur Gut !!! Dont wait a year, but shop around for a better deal. IMO. offer them 6K , maybe 6.5k out the door. They bought it for 5K most likey dropped and all.

    Good advice. I think I better start looking. My gut says, "Find an EBR 1190SX as soon as possible! Can always find another XB9SX since there were over 10K produced".

    Buelly same goes for you. If you can crack off a 1:19 lap at my track......you got $500 cash waiting for you at pit out! On an EBR on Thunderbolt course.

    Thats much better. Not many details needed for a stock bike with 600 miles on it.

    I love the white:


    But you can get a grey airbox cover and front trim easily and cheaply if thats your thing Ask Silver, he has an extra one I'm sure of it!
