  2. The bike which answers the question that no-one asked.
  3. :shock: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    I like the advert......"All the legendary Buell handling you'd expect".........its a HD product I WOULD expect nothing LESS than NOTHING :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    Oh it it does look pretty FUGLY IMHO

  4. Homer: "You know, I wouldn't say Mr Burns is incontinent..."
    Bart: "Bwahahahaha. Incontinent."
    Lisa: "Does either of you know what 'incontinent' means?"
    Homer: "Lisa, don't spoil our fun."

    if you want to pick on something about it, try those cast wheels which probably won't stay round for long on rough roads, the rim-mounted front disc which could be bent easily if the bike drops into a rut, and the underslung muffler just waiting for a fallen log to cave it in when the bike bottoms out.

    Beyond that, The Duc Multistrada has something to worry about... the Buell's smaller, lighter and, thanks to its bigger, longer-stroke motor (both are air-cooled and have two valves per cylinder), torquier.

    The KTM 950 Adventure won't have much to worry about, though.
  5. So you agree with the original proposition that Buells don't handle?

  7. Mate of mine has a firebolt.

    Nice bike, but I done think I'd trust one for any serious off road work. He's had some troubles.

  9. Did someone say MultiStrada?
  10. Oh, and those hand-protectors are just plain nasty :(

    Do like Buell's though, at least they are different.
  11. It sure looks magic .. anyone know an $AU price?
  12. Buggered if I know but you prob won't get much change from 20 big ones.

    Still think I prefer this one
  13. A few thousand in change it seems ...
    $11,495 USD (RRP) = ~$15,100 AUD = ~$17,000 ride away on our shores.
  14. The Americans have never understood real motorcycling (imho)

    And yes, I know, they have a long and distinguished history of producing motorcycles..
  15. Unfortunately you can't always compare USD to AUD.

    If they can do if for around that price though, they'll prob sell a few.
  16. Sat morning then !!!
    We'll take the hacksaw to the Strom and re-design??!!
    Bring fresh jocks...
