    I think the biggest point for most desirable.... is what is most desirable to you and for what reason? Like Cooter, I prefer M2's for the more comfortable ride and relaxed bike. Or do you want something a bit more unique like a 98 S1 White Lightning? Or maybe one that makes the most power? Then X1.

    I've never been a fan of the touring models, but people who own them tend to swear they are the best yet. S3T comes to mind as being the crowd favorite.

    The Tubers are awesome!!! different animal than the XB, not better or worse, just different. I have an S3 with the wide seat, so much nicer on the family jewels than the X1... Eric really needed to come out with a factory recall on that seat! Both of mine have fuel injection but if I could really have my way an S1 or S2, better yet an RS1200 Westwind!!! I don't think anybody today would realistically be purchasing a buell tuber to gobble up the miles so have some fun!!! That's not a knock about the reliability, I just choose not to take my tubers any farther then my GF is willing to come to pick me up :-0
