Buell Lightning for 6'4" guy?

Hey guys,

I'm looking into my first bike and I'd love to get a Buell. I've loved them ever since I first saw one at the track in Sacramento, but anyways, I am a decently big and tall guy. Almost 6'4" and 210 points lean.

I'm really interested in getting a Lightning but is the XB12Ss my only option really? They are only newer models first off and they are difficult to find used (can't afford new). XB9s and XB12S is much easier for me to find.

Any tall guys riding these models or should I wait for a good deal on an XB12SS?
