Hey all, Funny how these things work out sometimes. On my '06 XL883 I recently got the rims powder coated, new grips\pegs, put awesome looking pinstripes on it just yesterday morning... yesterday afternoon I went to the Harley shop to pick up oil\oil filter and BAM... I ended leaving with an '08 Buell XB12S... 5 miles on it. Bought brand new off the floor. My goodness I love it! High end engineering and very unique looks... beautiful bike and the power... unreal. I have chimed in many times on these forums mostly in support of the 883 and its power... sometimes not. It's a personal thing if a bike is right for you... the feel of it... the power. I LOVED my 883 and what I did to it (mods after mods\etc)... it looked awesome BUT... there was a nagging constantly at the back of my head that after all the mods and such the bike was still an 883... and I wanted more! So I went to Harley to get a filter.. and maybe see whats up with the Nightsers. I thought I wanted a Nightser until I looked it over and allllllllllll the mods I would have to redo to get it where mine was... ehhh... almost made me sick. So I decided to go UBER power and unique... and I love it. I'll miss my 883 though. Great bike.
