The Buell handled well on both road and track, its blend of light weight, steep steering geometry and short wheelbase making it very flickable yet stable. On the circuit, its sportbike-stiff suspension was in its element. The front end felt awkward as I rode slowly out of pit lane, but better the faster I rode. The rear end occasionally moved around a little under my 185 lbs., suggesting a bit more rebound damping would help. I was also impressed by the grip of the Pirelli Diablo Corsa III radials, which made excellent use of the Buell's generous cornering clearance in the dry yet held on even when the surface became damp.
