    Just bought back into the Buell life.

    So after 15 years without a Buell I just picked up a new to me 2005 xb12s. I started off on a 2000 blast and them moved up to an xb9s in 2003. Unfortunately that bike met an untimely end due to a driver running a red light. I decided to move on to other brands but nothing ever felt quite the same as my old lightning so after years of lurking I finally broke down and bought another.

    Anyway here's a couple of pictures of it.

    It has, what I understand to be, a red voltage kit on it. I've only ever seen one other this color in a video some where so if anyone has any info on that color I'd like to know more. It appears to be a factory appearance package, as some of the plastics still have barcodes with part numbers on the back but I haven't had much luck in finding out more.

    Sorry for the funky rotation, not sure what vbulliten is doing.

    Welcome back to Buell and to the forum
    Yes, its a set of Buell "Voltage" plastics. They came is a few different colors but I've never seen one in person before! They look to be in really nice shape, good find.
    Where do you park it at night? JK, happy you found your way home

    Nice find. I only thought those special packages only existed in catalogs.

    Ah, thanks for the info. They're in extremely good shape. The bike has just under 7000 miles on it. The previous owner and his wife took really good care of her.

    Sweet, thanks for the link. I had tried searching but was mostly getting hits on voltage regulators and other problems people had searched. It's also nice to know that bad weather has still not changed its look since the day it was created.

    You just pulled out a Badweb link... from 2005... Just like that? (Snaps fingers, in an impressed way). Well done!

    The people haven't changed one bit either. LOL.
