    all '99 and newer buells, except the m2 and blast, were FI. A carbed or FI S3t would be a great bike. I prefer FI. I wouldn't get a '97. They have a few '97 only parts on them and are hard to find if you want to keep it "correct".

    I've commuted on a number of bikes including a Duc ST4s. I like my 08 Uly the best.

    Been researching the Tubers. I do like them. Seems to be the STT/Uly, or an S3T for commuting.

    Any comparison between the Uly and a tuber? Comfort wise? I would need rain gear and cold weather gear storage.
    Whats the mpg on a S3T or tuber in general? The XB gets high 40's and hits 50 occasionally. However with the R my wrists aren't happy after an hour.

    Anyone wanna trade a SST/Uly, S3T for a 66 Barracuda?

    I commute daily about 80 miles RT. Half mountain twisties, half highway.

    I have been riding my 09 Firebolt most of the time, but my 2000 S3T is way more comfortable. Once I finish all of the maintenance on the S3T I will probably ride it more. I just need to replace the exhaust hanger bolt (front), fork seals and all of the motor mounts (not failing or showing much wear, but want to replace them anyway).

    The XB gets 45mpg and the S3T gets about 43mpg

    2009 XB 1250 as my daily commuter. Was commuting 60 miles a day, now 40 miles a day. It has been a great commuting bike.
