There isn’t too many Buell’s in the world and even less lady Bueller’s. This is @mzbuell and this her story.
"My best friend Juz always said a Buell lightning was the perfect bike for me, and I had no idea what he was going on about. I was such a novice rider and was just riding around with the boys on Harleys, on my little VTR250. After he passed away, I attained my full license and went on the hunt for an upright V-Twin. I just happened to stumble across a cheap 2003 Buell XB9s, all my friends were telling me to buy it. Still had no idea what I was doing... 8 and a half hours drive up North later, I laid eyes on my new partner in crime. I handed over my cash.
On my first ride my heart was pumping so hard I thought it would explode out of my chest. I was pretty nervous. But once we got out to some sweeping corners and out of the traffic, I fell in love and the smile on my face told it all. I soon after understood why my mate thought it was such a perfect match for me! I had major issues with my crankshaft and engine, and my XB9s (Gumby) we went into the workshop for quite some time. I was back riding my little 250. I couldn't wait any longer to ride a Buell. So then I decided I better go buy another one 😂. I flew myself interstate as I found a 2007 XB9sx. Damn the passion now has me wanting more of the other models! Hooked for life! Its also teaching me a few things on the tools...
