    Don't give your Buell's away

    I sold my 09 Bolt for 8K have a solid large deposit, and a back up offer for 8.5, So don't give your Buell's away.

    That is AWESOME Silver and congrats. But I believe that to be the exception, not the rule.

    SR's bike probably reads mileage off the front wheel.

    or he hooked up his battery backwards and has been running like that for awhile.

    Sir: very rare bike and worth every penny. well done! I have been of the opinion for some time now that a flawless, original, ultra low mileage XB is worth close to original list price. You have given me motivation to think about selling my 2008 XB12 black lightning silver anniversary edition. it is still new with ZERO miles. It was never dealer-prepped nor ridden. there are only two known ZERO mile new Buells left in existence and mine is one of them.
    I am very happy for you.

    I never understood keeping the XB untouched. It was worth 10k in 2009, its worth 8k in 2020, factoring in inflation, that's even more of a loss. Then you have to worry about rubber seals, hoses, gaskets and tires rotting. Unless you kept it around as a parts bike, but never had to use it for parts....

    Well done SR! I won't give you crap for 240 miles because I know you ride the other ones

    I agree with ya Grego, new vehicles are a 99.9% terrible 'investment', especially when left to languish, un-touched and un-loved What's the fun in that Go for a ride, go get bugs in yer teeth and show them all off
    Wheels through Time is such a great museum because he will take the rarest bike in the bunch, fire it up and take it for a RIP!

    In fact, just this afternoon I picked this up (again, haha). Sold it to a nice family in 2004 so they could take their little kids to the beach. The kids just graduated college(!!) so she asked if I wanted to buy it back. 16 years... and only 2000 more miles They almost cried when I pulled it out of the garage! If they liked it so much, turn the key, and drive it! It still has the personal "Slacker" plates on it
