Here's my Craigs post

I know I'm selling a lot of stuff. :)

I'm just trying to simplify my financial life. It kills me to let this one go though. It's pretty loaded and gets better mileage than any crotch rocket. Unbeatable in the corners and is easy for women to ride too (it's a pretty small bike, but don't worry it sounds big :cool:)

NOT replying for justin. However, they're pretty low Ige. I think around 29" or so. very nimble, very quick. I know it's smaller looking than my ducati 900ss.

Gonna miss my riding buddy.
Buell's tag line is, "Own the corners". They mean it. Fine handling motorcycle. Wonderful sound.

My Buell is the tallest they make (for ground clearance, it is an all-road model) and I cannot put both feet down. Being an old dirt rider, I am used to that. The benefit is having a motorcycle I can stretch out on, yet is still small and light and handles even on forest roads.

Learn the butt-slide method. It works!

you can also have put a lowering kit on the rear, as well as drop the forks. :)
