Well, had a mishap with the Blast, I traded it in on a 750 Monster. I was concern about what mods would do to the Blast. But I do not regret getting the Blast. It is a great first bike. But I outgrew it really fast. Even though I fell in love with the Monster a few years ago, it was the Blast that actually got me riding and that makes it a great bike. I wish Buell made a sportbike between the Blast and the M2. I love the sound of the Buells. Even the Blast sounded good. Well, better go join the Ducati's.
Humm . . .
