Buell Ulysses XB12xr In North Eastern Arizona

My Bikes

The workhorse of my group of bikes is my 2006 Buell Ulysses or otherwise know as an Uly.

Though I did not know it at the time of my purchase, this has become my long distance bike of choice for me.

December 23 2006, After the papers were signed.

The bike that preceded the Buell as my long distance ride.

1984 Harley Davidson FLHTC

I replaced this bike as my full time ride when it got near 100,000 miles on it.

August 1986, I guess I do not need to note where I am !

The next bike is a 1977 BMW R100/7
In the summer of 1999 my Electra Glide suffered a valve guide failure and I was looking at a long down time to have the cylinder heads rebuilt. I found I needed a bike really Bad, so I bought this BMW to get me through while my H-D was apart. It has never left 

Summer 2009

The most recent addition to the fleet was originally a bike that came to me to fix a catastrophic chain failure that damaged the engine case. As the project moved ahead, I decided to buy the bike from the owner and do a full teardown of the entire bike.

1982 Honda CBX C spec 

3 years of work and it is now done. (Almost) Now that I know that it runs and drives good, I will work on the cosmetics of this super cool bike !

I have now put over 1000 miles on the CBX and I am just amazed at it. It is like no other bike. Nothing sounds like its engine at 8000 + RPM 

What surprised me the most was how many people did not know what it is.
