That's actually a cool looking bike...the 1125R that is. Hard to imagine Harley Davidson building something like that.

Some of you may have already seen the news -- Buell unveiled the 1125R, a new, Rotax-powered, liquid-cooled, open-class sportbike this last weekend with great specs:
Check out the videos. FWIW, I don't for a second pretend that such a creature would be a suitable replacement for the GPZ's style of riding, or have any kind of rational street purpose (ie travel, commuting), but still -- this is very, very good news for Buell's future.
Also, for those of you still on the fence about getting a Ulysses (you know who you are -- I get your secretive emails!), Buell made some subtle, but significant, refinements to the 2008 model, to include motor and front suspension/geometry improvements:
