Default Re: Longride, are you serious?

no - it's fine. As long as credit is given - besides just discovering it for yourself in the link or seeing the copyright at the bottom of the article in small print.



It's just a fine line to walk for a pay site is all.



It is a good commentary though..

"No matter what clever ideas the Italians and Kenny Roberts dream up, Honda will adapt the ideas with an improved version and be winning in a year or two."



You aren't saying the Japanese would (GASP) COPY anything, would you?? KPaul will hate you for the rest of your life if you even imply this! It isn't possible!

OH MY GOD , why are you crying about $12.00 a year? I give more than that to "outdoorsman" at freeway offramps. looking at single incidents and trying to justify suscribing isn't accurate, Who else has an SV1000 road-test among others? if your so pissed Why do you keep posting?

Now your repeating yourself,,, you hit the fun of fast street riding right on the head though, thats the best discription of brisk riding vs. all-out racing I've seen.

The oil trail and the parts help me find my way home!



I've only been able to put 150 miles on it due to parenting responsibilities. So, I still have my 3000 RPM break-in limit.



I want to do the air cleaner and touring muffs at the 1000 mile service. Have you done anything to yours performance-wise?

I think it's about time they took off the SuperBike Handicaps.



Gentlemen, choose your weapon and choose wisely. Now the inline fours are playing on an even playing field. Horsepower difference? Well, don't choose the twin, you doof!



For the street, I love the twins. I now have a vfr800..v4. Great bike, but I miss my v-twins.



I love the grunt and the beautiful sound.

I installed a Power Commander and made a map that runs much better than stock (fuel injected). Other than that, I am going to wear it out a bit before I do any mods. I still run the stock air cleaner and mufflers! After that, Screaming Eagle or Zippers Performance is going to get a chunk of my cash. I figure around 100hp, 120 torque should be easy and reliable. Right now, I am rebuilding my old Superglide, so that is taking care of current spare cash and time, and I am also thinking of dropping a Muzzy 998 kit in the ZX9. Decisions, Decisions!

Thats ridiculous, everyone knows Igota Ichibum invented the V-twin in 1902, and the inline 4 in 1928, before moving on to paralel twins in 1934
