    Default New to me

    Picked up a new bike. 2000 Buell Lightning X1. I wanted a Buell when I got my Sportster, but they were kinda pricey. Looking back, the thousands I spent to make it faster and handle better....Oh well, I love them both. Can't see riding the Buell all the way to The Gap!

    I pulled off the giant black plastic air box and the fake one on the other side. I like it more naked! Air cleaner in pic is $13 autozone special temporarily installed til I get the new one.

    Nice!

    Kook's Headers. Sounds good too. I got a printout from a dyno and if this was the pipe on it then the torque curve is awesome and flat. Feels that way on the street.

    Thanks. It's not the color I would have picked, but when I saw it in person I loved it. The blue frame is cool.

    So far. I hope to. I love the Sporty too. Maybe I can make it more comfortable and cruiser like.
