    Re: ok help me pick one

    lol harleys are not just and old mans bike!
    ive built and ridin harleys from the age 17- 30..........but unelss its a really old sportster like the 69' 900 copped custom i had, there smaller and like count said a "chicks" ride. go with what u feel is "you"

    best thing 2 things to consider:
    1. what suits ur personality
    2. what size/make bike can u physically handle...too often ppl make a mistake and get a bike thats way too heavey or big and often find this out later in a situation that results in serious injury....especially if its ur first bike!

    i dont mean to preach, but once u have seen family/ friends and even strangers get hurt/killed its hard not too..including myself.......

    goodluck.......

    My brother has that same Buell but in a different color and it is a great bike. Ive got a '05 Ducati 749 Superbike and sometimes the Buell is more fun because its got more torque.

    If those are your only two choices i would have to say Buell too.

    Id wait and save up for something better... like a Ducati...

    Myself, ill be eventually getting the Hybrid Triumph... built inbetween Cloud Strife's Fenrir Cycle (Final Fantasy) and The Judge Dread Bike (Judge Dread)... Looks very much like a Swoop.... Perfect for me

    I agree with some of the others, get something YOU like and that YOU can handle easily. Don't let your testosterone get the better of you and get something too large.

    Whatever you do, wear a helmet and assume drivers can not see you. It will make you a more defensive and aware driver. We don't have a helmet law in South Carolina, but anyone with any sense wears a brain bucket.

    It would totally rock if you got your motorcycle helmet painted like a Boba Fett helmet. 8)

    I saw a pic of someone's bike that was painted like Slave 1, but of course, I can't find the pic now.

    Keep us all posted.

    I'd go with the Buell, just because Sportsters are a bag of spanners. If you want to go the Harley road then get one of the Bigger evos. If that's not poss then stick with the Buell, looks far better, more reliable and the brakes work.

    Yep at 17 - If you were driving a harley around, I would think you were borrowing your dad's motorcycle...

    I think the Buell is cooler and much more age appropraite...Granted at 17 I was driving a '91 Ford Escort (champagne colored) - which had about 150K miles on it....

    I'll take my R1 over all of them, but if I had to choose between those, I'd go with the Buell. Definately more fun.
    TRUE-DAT!

    That Boba helmet looks like the one my friend owns... His wife had it custom made for him - she said the guy that made the helmet didn't know who Boba Fett was!!!

    He sure did an awesome paint job! Just goes to show you the value of good reference pix.

    Re: ok help me pick one

    Heh heh, something I know a little about... I'm a cargo hold prowler/variant wannabe. I've not bought much. Just getting ideas. Anyway, I've never been much a fan of Buells. My first bike was a GS500 so I'm a little biased. I would advise something you're not afraid to drop and both of those look pretty new. SO get the cheap one. You've probably ridden a few times seeing as how your dad's supportive but seeing that you just got the permit I'd say you ought to start out on the buell. It's much lighter and may be more forgiving (if that's even possible).

    PLEASE go slow. PLEASE don't good fast. LOL. I know that's silly because that's not why people buy bikes but it takes a LONG time to ease into a motorcycle. Don't get cocky!
