Buell on Ice Stunts
Buell motorcycles sent extreme rider Craig Jones to Lake Dellen in Sweden
to see how fast a motorbike could go on ice. With a small window of
opportunity and against the elements including extreme temperatures of
-10C, Jones took a specially customised Nitrous-injected Buell 1125R and set a world first
for the fastest bike on ice.
As if that wasn't extreme enough, between record attempts Jones put the
Buell 1125R and 1125CR through their paces with a series of stunts - all
taking place on a frozen lake. Enjoy!

Buell Jardine vs. Hawk Exhaust
UPDATE EDIT: I am amazed at how many views this has gotten. I am also
surprised at the feedback, it seems viewers opinions are split very evenly
between the two. I personally prefer the Hawk Exhaust, but I'm glad many others were able to
use this video to pick their preferred sound.
EDIT: This video now has more views than all Buell XB models ever made
(68,897)! I think some of you guys are double watching, lol. Thanks for the
views everyone, please thumbs up if you like it!
This is a comparison of the Aluminum Jardine RT-1 slip-on Exhaust vs. the Hawk Exhaust by Randy Hawkins. My bike is an 07 Buell

Jardine to get rid of decel popping.
