Default Pictures of your buell with model info and your opinion

Other than the sportster connection I know nothing about buells.
But I would like to get a bit more educated.
So if you can post a pic and include your take on that specific model .

If im going to learn about them I feel no one knows them like their owners

Thanks so much .
I know that the models ranged from race bikes to adventure bikes but which model had the most innovations over all in your opinion

And thanks to everyone for taking time to do this

Didn't they make one that was kind-of a tourer, with bags, and a little bigger fairing?
If so, I think I want one.

There is something about the way the air cleaner was mounted on the RSS1200 that I find very appealing
