Of belt drives and rear end failures

It may sound like blasphemy today, but belt drive may the the way of the
for both reliability and durability.

Even for BMW.

It offers the traditional advantages of shaft drive (no maintenance) and
chain (lightweight, efficient).

For example, Buell feels so confident on the belt that they do not specify a
replacement service interval on the Ulysses.

If it does fail, it is nowhere near the show stopper that a failed shaft
drive is.
Plus replacement is relatively cheap.

I have a review of the Ulysses up

Now we need to know if it will hold up to its intended use.
