Default It's a home run.

Speaking from no experience with the old Firebolt only Burger Barn knowledge*, the new wider rev range, 6 speed tranny, increased useful power i.e wide flat torque curve, slipper clutch, will I think move Buell into the big leagues. I tested a Cyclone a long time ago on the street. I was impressed with the torque but it was hard to gauge it on the "test route". Even though I have made a hobby of criticizing V-Twins.. Seeing them in action in the hands of good rider has changed my novice mind. My next bike will probably be a twin.. Cause like many have said..for real world riding they are very good at it.

* Reading lots of reviews in the print mags and online. i.e. no real experience...

How can, what is probably the most important motorcycle news of the year, that being Buell getting the engine it deserves, still not make the front page of this site? Crazy.

Maybe MO needs more staff or let moderators post news items on the front page.. Longride used to do it on the old site..Iamz, you are correct most of the motorcycle web sites had it on page one.. All of the general (non racing) sites that aren't backed by a magazine had it as page one except for MO..

Then could someone explain to me why the forum designer has not been slowly and painfully executed?

This forum design sucks so hard that it bends light.
I know, I rarely visit now, it's too bad.

Here's a random Plato quote for you from the Republic.

"Until philosophers rule as kings or those who are now called kings and leading men genuinely and adequately philosophise, that is, until political power and philosophy entirely coincide, while the many natures who at present pursue either one exclusively are forcibly prevented from doing so, cities will have no rest from evils,... nor, I think, will the human race." (Republic 473c-d)

Krebs,

I'm with you, man! Or not, I guess.

The forum is too hard to navigate. Even when you go straight to New Posts, it's much more involved to strafe the site than before.

And some pinhead has invoked Zero Defects on the posts. I "may not edit" my posts.

It is. You're one of the best MOridians. Even if you are a dirty hippie commie.

Speaking of which, liquid cooling is a Communist plot to steal our precious bodily fluids for engine cooling. Airheads unite! Purity of Essence!
