Wrong neuron fired
 
Yes, thank you, gbrummett. I did indeed mean 2005.



Obviously life's passing by a little too fast for me.

Date or Ride, but Not Both
 
You should only date or ride high maintenance, but not both. All you married guys can have the Ducatis. Every time one of my neurotic, all black wearing, lithium/paxil/cocaine taking girlfriends dumps me for the bass player in a local band, there is my Honda VFR waiting patiently for me in my garage. A man needs some stability in his life, but not too much.

You're debating between the world's 2 ugliest bikes. You should add the Katana to your shopping list to make the hideous blob trifecta. Or how about a rune?

The bike that dares not say its name
 
V-Strom.



Homelier than a mud box. Even the name...well...it came from the same studio that gave us the Madura.





(And why is it that the V-Strom, Multi, and Tiger share not just a case of the uglies, but functionally, they're all great bikes? There's something metaphysical here but that water's just too deep for me.)

I hope a lot of people feel like you when it comes to the Multistrada. I should be able to get a good deal on one of the new 620's next spring. I'll repeat myself,....to each his own. ;)

Whoopee...
 
The only one that would make any sense to me would be the following:



2005 and Prior Model Years

--- Rate --- Term - Down Pmnt - Max Advance

Tier I-III 2.9% 60 Months 0% 125%



All the others blow chunks and you may as well take out a home equity loan and write it off on your taxes. Anything over 4.9% in today's economy makes no sense...no sense at all. Go Ducati, go.

Bikes are like women - the better looking they are, the more useless they are. A beautiful woman and an MV Agusta F4 are expensive, high-maintenance, virtually unobtainable and only good for one thing - an exciting ride that will impress your friends but leave you with a backache.



Now, a V-Strom or a Multistrada - that's like a homely girl who wins you over because she learned long ago that she'd have to be interesting, funny, cook well and treat you right.

Excellent. Now all they have to do is offer financing on the valve adjustment.

I confess. I'm very tempted. I've owned two Ducatis. Both were reliable. As for riding them, well, the only thing with a better front end feel than a Ducati is Angelina Jolie. Yes, chicks dig 'em. They love looking at them and riding them. They love the exhaust sound. You love the exhaust sound. But beware. They are addictive. If a Ducati is like sex, all other motorcycles are just jerking off. Carry a drool towel if you buy one, as everyone will be slobbering all over it.
