I just found your site. I ride a Buell X1. Lots of fun. I see this site has about the same turn out of Buell riders as other sites. I look forward to hearing from Buell riders as well as all others.

I don't see too many Buell riders on the sport bike sites. I don't know why, they stick to the Buell sites but I think they are for the most part pretty boring. I like the energy that this site has. I'll check back often.

I own a 99 M2 and i would not trade it for anything. I love the looks it gets and i can't wipe the smile off my face while riding. I have ridden other sports bikes and they just don't compare.

Finally got some decent weather here and I'm finding every excuse to run office errands. That rumble renews my soul!

Ride Safe,

Well, i just bought a 2000 buell lightning x1 and i love it to death. I did some research and from what some people said i was a bit leary in buying it but after reading enough i went for it and havent regretted it yet. First thing i did was buy a new computer for it and it seems to help alot and i also went for the vance and hines slip on exhaust wich gives it a wonderfull rumble. Also i went to my local paint shop and had those ugly dull black boxes painted to match the bike wich gives it a larger look. Although going into harley shops you kinda feel like the black sheep of the family, but thats a good thing ....right???... As i told some die hard harley guys my bike is what your sportster has wet dreams about. well i've been around harleys my whole life and a ducati might be faster and a honda might be more relable but one thing ive learned is it's not about going fast on a machine(well sorta) but being one with it and its not just riding for us american guys on our harleys/buells its a way of life and that [email protected]#$ you attitude that goes along with it. sorry didnt mean to get all deep on you. But i leave you with this.... Ask any harley/buell owner to buy any thing else and notice that middle finger he shows you it is the largest you will ever see.

My X1

I have had my X1 for over a year now and love it more than ever.
After getting it,I put the race ECM,race air filter kit,a White bros.exhaust,updated shifter,and an undertail.
I started work on the engine 3 days ago,and am missing riding it already.I am installing stage III heads,SEII cams,Millenium big bore cylinders,hurricane pistons,roller rockers,JIMS hydrosolid lifters,Crane adjustable pushrods,and adjustable pushrod covers.
I should be finished in a day or two,then go for a slow ride.
