    2006 XB12SS - Portland, OR - 18K - Drummer exhaust and more $4000

    This is a 2006 Buell Lightning Long XB12SS (black and amber)
    I have owned this bike since 2008 after I bought used from original owner. I love this bike and regrettably, the bike only has 18,129 miles on the odometer. It has seen the track, scored me a wife, blown through the blue ridge mountains, and traveled across the US (via trailer). This bike has been the youth of my earlier years, and now that it is 18, it is time to part ways as my other hobbies demand more attention.

    I have upgraded the exhaust and ECM system and made a few other modifications to make it more enjoyable on longer trips. The laminar lip is amazing and makes is much easier to go above 80 MPH (for passing purposes).

    There are no mechanical issues with this bike. Fires right up and is ready to ride. There are some light scratches on the frame slider and the oil cooler cover. I have an extra frame slider but never bothered to replace it.

    Price: $4000
    Model: XB 12SS Lightning Long
    Make: Buell
    Year: 2006
    Miles: 18,129
    Color: Black and Amber

    It's a nice bike

    Sorry, I'm not in the market for another Ss, but what type of brake EBC HH pads are they? If they're EPFA, or GPFAX, I could take them off your hands
