2002 Buell Lightning x1
mine doesnt leak oil(fixed rocker boxes before hand)
Right amount of power for being a newb
full showa suspension
decent riding position
Tons of after market parts
General maintense is a sinch
Every one likes the sound (I really dont care)
power down low is right wear I ride
Great daily commute
Not alot of people know what it is
Comfy for a long haul
Handling is very inspiring
To me the grin factor is huge
#$ speedo sensor if I have to replace one more..arghhh
No Place to mount frame sliders
Pain in the ass to clean
recalls(not a big deal to me since I did it in the winter and it was free)
No respect from anyone (but I like it that way
Finding a dealership that knows what you are talking about is big punch in the nuts
Vibration at idle(not a big deal cause it's smooth once you get going and i like it but it does wear on your parts.
Sometimes I wish I had a full fairing
People saying is that a Harley sport bike The only thing the same is the 45 degree engine on the out side the inside is a totally different situation.
Seat sucks(maybye it's my big ass
Did I mention getting bashed on forums
In the end I love my choice and I love my bike since I am only a newb I will save the 150mph runs to the more experienced. I think that any newb who starts out on a smaller hp bike will be a better rider in the end for it. Especially in the twisties you have to learn how to get thru them fast to keep up and not realiy on HP to catch up thru the straights.
