I thought I should sort of introduce myself. I live in AZ now and am originally from PA. I just bought an 08 xt thinking I could touch the ground easily but so far thats a stretch. I'm 80 yrs old anque, handling, d most of my 50 yrs of riding has been on Ducatis, Moto Guzzia and Piaggio Scooters. I did buy a Buell S3T new in 96 and upgraded iit with 97 pistons and the race kit. I loved the bike because of its torque, handling, comfort and gas mileage. I didn't like towing it back to the dealership 4 times while it was under warrenty time wize 4 time for vibration related breakdowns. Anyway a couple of my brends back east have ulys and are quitw happy with them so here we go again. I hope it goes better this time.
