    2006 Buell Ulysses

    Model(s) covered: 2006 Buell XB12X Ulysses

    Maybe I’m Americanized, because after getting the call from Uncle Erik (Buell) to come ride the newest edition to the family, the Ulysses, my first thought was early 1900's, heavy cast iron boat (chortle). However, I too easily dismissed my European and educational roots because this particular Ulysses reference was towards the Greek mythology kind. So, heavy boat anchor or wandering Greek hero and conqueror of all?

    The introduction was held in the original mile high club, Denver, Colorado. The extreme elevation (hey, I live in Florida) played havoc with the 45-degree 1203cc motor.

    I ride a lot of different types of motorcycles for my work. Once in awhile, though, a bike comes along that really gets my attention – the kind of attention that has me thinking of owning this bike.

    The Buell Ulysses XB12X is that bike. That's right. Me, Miss Cruiser Gal has fallen in love with a tall, aggressive-tired adventure sportbike. No, I'm not getting soft on ya; I just see all the possibilities that come with owning a Ulysses. The fact that this motorcycle excels on hard-packed dirt and gravel is a huge thumbs-up for me.

    I was perhaps like some of you, wondering how the innovative sportbike guys at Buell could come up with something as daft as transforming their scalpel-like XB tool into an overgrown dirt bike. It seemed as if company founder (and former TZ750 racer) Erick Buell must've somehow been coerced into a VW Microbus and forced to sample some electric kool-aid.
    However, the funny thing is Buell's new Ulysses really impressed us during its press launch in Colorado's Rocky Mountains-an acid test of a different kind-and we predict it will turn out to be the Harley subsidiary's best-seller.

    Buell Ulysses - All Roads Lead To Roam

    Model(s) covered: 2006 Buell XB12X Ulysses

    The rocks are rounded, smoothed and damp with the morning's cool fall dew. The road has seen water, and lots of it, in its tenure as both tributary and means of conveyance. In the face of the stunning surroundings I keep in mind the words of wisdom offered by my offroad companion, "stand up, keep your elbows loose, and keep up momentum".
