Another Test Ride?
I‘ve been looking at Buell’s web site since the new models were rolled out, and looking up some information on the 1125R.¬† I’ve also been watching that young Eslick fellow sweep the Daytona races around the country.
So, I stopped off at Biggs Harley-Davidson today to look at one in person.¬† All I got to do was sit on the bike–they have a white one on display, as well as a couple of CR variants.¬† The CR is too much of a naked bike for my taste, but the R model looks sweet.¬† I know the looks are controversial, but I like them.
Just sitting on the bike, I could tell that the ergos are far more forgiving than the Kawasaki Z-Bikes, and way more comfy than the R1 or R6.¬† You aren’t forced to lean as far forward, and the pegs aren’t set quite as high, so you aren’t crouched into a full fetal position.¬† This is a sportbike I might actually be able to ride for more than 30 minutes at a time.
Surprisingly, the Biggs guys are open to letting me take one out for a test ride.¬† So I’ll probably have a test ride report on the Buell 1125R in the near future.
