Well finishing first in a World Superbike race isn't racing!



And, what's up with all the other I4s? They're no more competitive than Ducati was last year in AMA superbike.



Is Suzuki that much better? Can't the factory Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki teams be anything more than glorified backmarkers?

The national average per gallon cost will be so much better when kalifornia falls into the ocean. Lots of other myriad problems sloved as well.

that makes $6.51 per gallon by today's exchange rate.

Well there is your problem: Everybody knows that you save money by buying in bulk (just look at all the Sam's Club and Costco stores out there!). You are all buying it in them itty-bitty Liters. Here in the US, we usually measure it by the SUV-full (about 40 gallons).



Europeans should get themselves more Super-Useless Vehicles that hold more fuel, and just watch the Savings roll in.........

What a dumbf*cker, for $24,999 he might have been able to get a real bike like one of them Choppers like on TV.



I guess Kerry was right, if you don't have enough sense to get an education you wind up in the army in Iraq.
