Re: Ducati Set To Launch New Monster
Thats statistically true, but he empirical evidence is that the actual rate of increase is growing more rapidly for the upper class. (Also they tend to be much less affected by cost of living increases that take a much bigger bite out of middle class household incomes.) Most professions tend to "top-out" in terms of income after a certain point, and no longer get substantial increases. This is particularly true among the blue/white collar jobs that make up the middle class. So the upper income increase in your example would probably not be the same as the middle class one.

Actually thats not entirely true. Most of the studies I've seen list upper class incomes as being over $250,000 (If I remember correctly). So the $100,000 one in your example would still be considered middle class. (I suppose the term RICH is relative. :))

Anyone know why more people do not go with the Buell styled exhaust?

I know Buell wasn't the inventor of this style, but they seem to be the ones running with it.

Kawasaki does it for there Ninja650.

Is it en emissions issue? Performance/Mods issue? What?

I like it better as far as looks go. With some bike designs it just seems like they don't know where to put the damn things sometimes.

Excellent well said. flatspin you are on the mark.. These MOrons are drunk on Faux News and denial. I am a middle of the road fiscal conservative Republican. That thinks the unconstrained neocons of the White House were quickly ruining this country . Balance is a good thing..

The frogs do it better
Who cares about the income gaps. ThatÂ’s for the envious commies. But vacations should be for everyone. You guys know that in France they have 35 hour working week and 5 week summer vacation. A typiclal trick is to work in 40 hrs weekly and have 10 weeks off a year. Call it socialism if you wish but it works. You only go round once.

Perhaps one of the most disturbed individuals I've ever witnessed.

OK, I'll bite. Why is I'm always seeing blank Airhawk posts following KPs?
