mrindian Posted February 17, 2010 Report Share Posted February 17, 2010 Hello, This past weekend I purchased my first new motorcycle ever. I purchased a 2009 Buell XB12R I've been riding bikes on the street for 30 years but they have all been antiques. My business is manufacturing parts for Vintage Indian Motorcycles ( www.starklite.com ) With the incentives offered on the Buell's, and I could tell my father it's not a Harley, and the fact that I've always wanted something with a bit more HP than my 1947 Chief I made the decision to purchase the bike. I purchased it on Sat 2/13, picked it up on 2/14. Rode the bike from Skip Fordyce HD in Riverside down to hwy 74 and out to the coast highway. Rode a total of 160 miles the first day, and 100 miles on 2/15 so I'm halfway to my 500 mile break-in period before I can exceed 4krpm. Since I've always ridden antique bikes, I've been looking at this website and the schooling offered. I can see that with the increased HP it could be easy to get in trouble on my new bike if I'm not careful, but I want to get the most fun out of it also. Doe the Level I, 1 day class translate well from the Track setting to the street? I see two offers your bike / our bike Which do people prefer? to learn on their own bike? Will the Buell XB12R be out of place compared to other bikes in the class? Thanks for any input - I'm looking at the Willow Spring classes Gary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
