Default Buell XB12S......Should I get it?

I was thinking about buying this bike. I like the looks and it handles better than most I bikes Ive ever been on. Anyone heard anything as far as reliablity goes? I know about the older ones. Any things I should look for when buying a used Buell?PS Think about what youre going to say before you say it.

Forget what Rob said, Buell is made by Harley. To me, if it handles good, and feels good buy it. As for reliablity, they aren't up to par with their foreign rivals and more $$$. ------

If you like it you should get it. Generally reliability on the XB's is good. There were a few nagging electrical issues on the first year, like wiring harnesses rubbing where they shouldn't have causing shorts, but that is rare. I've got an XB9SX, a great bike, I had a warranty issue with it within the first 1000 miles (a broken valve spring) which was repaired under warranty at no cost to me. Since then it's been trouble free.

Call me happy.
