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
XB9SX Lightning. The bike was tuned using ECMSpy and Megalog Viewer for the
Jardine to get rid of decel popping.

Craig Jones School of Stunt lesson 3! And extras... Wheelies, burnouts and
stoppies. Even a stoppie that turns into a burnout on the instant the rear
wheel touches ground again! Then Tor Sagen gets personal stunt tuition.
Great stuff from Craig in this video! http://www.facebook.com/Raptorama

A short ride around the block with the GoPro mounted with their suction cup
mount. This mount does a much better job than the handlebar mount but the
camera still vibrates a good bit.
The Boost controller is set to
~15psi in every gear.
The bike is running a bit rich at that Boost level which causes the couple of
stutters during hard acceleration at 2:35 and 6:10.
The slipping clutch is evident in the 4th and 5th gear pull at 6:12.
The GoPro picks up an occasional rattle noise when the intake plumbing
slightly vibrates against the tank cover (what the GoPro suction cup is
At 8:58 a guy in a white SUV asks what kind of bike it is and at 10:08 and
12:48 I talk to a guy riding a Triumph. He asks if it's a 500, haha!
At 10:40 a woman tries to cut me off.....Grrr!
