My friends down at Bumpus Harley-Davidson/Buell in Murfreesboro, Tennessee hosted the Buell Factory Demo trailer today. Several factory bikes were on hand and having been a closet fan of the XB12 for a long time, I had to take the opportunity to check one out for myself.

I have to say… I was very impressed. The XB12SS is quick, nimble, responsive and a total blast to ride. By the time I was done with my hour long ride I was converted to a true fan. (Kudos to Tom Bumpus for leading us on a really good run and not just your typical around the block test ride)

Here are a few pics of the bike I rode. Those of you in Tennessee… look for a complete review of this bike in an upcoming issue of Thunder Roads Tennessee.

  2. Man, we went all over the place… 840… Sulfer Springs… and a bunch of other places. It was literally like an hour long ride and a good mix of curves and interstate.

    BTW… the new blog looks great. Everyone visit Ronman at
