My first bike was a '98 Buell S1 White Lightning. I wouldn't suggest it to anyone for a first, second or forty second bike but I do believe that if can survive one of these (touchy, unreliable, dangerous) bikes you can ride anything.
And all the rooms, they smell like diesel
And you take on the dreams of the ones who have slept there
And I'm lost in the window
and I hide in the stairway
and I hang in the curtain
and I sleep in your hat
