I have a hard time keeping up. It's probably all that dope I smoked in Nam while I was raping mothers and killing babies and burning villages under the direct orders from the highest levels of the military.



Anyhow..... Off the pigs! Down with Whitey! **** the Man!

Ducati has been on a sound financial footing for a while now. Though they have had the occassional bad quarter, they have been making steady profits. No, they're not Honda or Yamaha, but they have been doing very well in their core (European) market. So the company has the cash. In essence, the old rules don't apply. Ducati in the US has not been doing very well, for a variety of reasons, chief among them, the American obsession with horsepower (or Harley) and the Duc dealers' desire to assure that each customer spends as much on maintenance as on the bike.

If you'd have plugged a couple of grannies you could be running for President.

Yeah, the sissy rainbow Euro that has gained 30% on the Greenback since its emasculation with a Rainbow background. And what ever happened to serial numbers that started with the initial signifying the issuing regional federal reserve banks? It's worse than going off the gold standard ...

I agree, though I think you're being too lenient with Guzzi and Aprilia. I think it will end up as Ducati sportbikes, Guzzi cruisers and Aprilia scooters, period.

This sounds rediculous to me, unless they can have Aprilia at a rock bottom price.



Aprilia is/was struggling big time. All ducati had to do was turn up the heat on them, and watch them collapse, then pick up the pieces afterwards for pennies.



Aprilia is duc's most direct competitor. Taking them out seems to be the logical thing to do. You think honda would save Kawaksaki's butt in similar circumstances?

I'm going to have to side with the rednecks. wait. I am a redneck. Ok.. I'm going to have to side with theCaptain and the boys.



I heard no crying when Kpaul went off on his rants.



I suggest that you problem is not with politics. You're problem is with that someone should dare disagree with you.



Let's face it... It's very offensive to the left-liberal mind that someone should disagree with them.



And now look what you did... You went and started another danged political thread.



Good thinkin'.
