Buell Blast 2005

I agree that riders come in all shapes and sizes and bikes do too. My first bike, a Honda Magna was not a good fit for me. My 2nd - a Yamaha V-Star was great. I put many miles on that bike.
The Buell Blast? Awesome. Light, short and corners like a sport bike is meant to!
A Sport-Touring bike? A bike can be what you make of it. No this is not was most people would think of when the term Sport-Touring is brought up but I love riding this bike so much that I have taken it on two cross country trips; Florida to Michigan last summer, to Maine this past June. I can easily put 500+ mile days on in the saddle and get up the next morning to start over again.
Bottom line, if you love YOUR bike, it is the Best Bike!
2004 Buell XB9S
Me and Mr. Buell himself!
This is my second Buell and 5th bike. I've had a 250 Honda Nighthawk, Suzuki 400 Bandit, Yamaha GSX650, Buell Blast and now my XB9S.
I am a huge fan of Buell for several reasons.....1) I live in WI, 2) My friend has been a personal friend of Eriks since the days of him building bikes in his grandfathers barn 3) Erik is a hell of a nice guy and was nice enough to sign my XB9S! 4) Buells are awesome bikes. Being only 5'0" I couldn't ride any of Eriks first bikes until the Blast, and then the XB9 was short enough to balance on toes. Having riding experience I am comfortable on my toes.

Shotgunshell and my 2000 buell x1 lightning
Hi there, my name is Shotgunshell i'm a hangaround with the She Devils M/C Bay Area. I ride a 2000 Buell lightning x1. Best way to describe this bike is a Harley Davidson on steroids. I was 6 years old when i started riding my grandmas honda trail 50 i couldnt touch the ground so someone would have to ride with me to hold up the bike when i stopped. Riding is an addiction for me, i will ride til the day i die. I have what is most important to me my daughter (17) and my bike, I am a woman and I RIDE!!!
