Default I hadn't really paid attention to all that.

Ok, I see what you mean now. But, I bought mine as a fun commuter bike and I am having fun on it. I rode a 900 Ninja for awhile but my back and arms were killing me, plus I wanted something that I could ride all day in comfort and pay lower insurance but still have some fun in the twisties and something that's not on every street corner, I like the attention. Also I'm still having fun, I guess that's a hard thing to measure though.



Thanks for the responce though as now I can understand a little better.

Default Re: Seems clear enough

Well I'm guessin' it means "it's not how quickly you get there, It's how much fun you have on the way"

I'd assume they mean they engineer their bikes for all 'round sporty riding instead of straight up top speed. Instead of technology for technology's sake (V-Tech anyone?) they improve existing designs to maximize performance. IMO the new Buell's are interesting bikes in that they get some pretty impressive performance out of whats basicaly '60's technology mated to current tech. frame and suspension designs

Japanese sportbikes are incredible and getting better each year, however I ride for fun and I really don't need the latest and greatest to do it. I'd rather have an interesting bike like a Ducati multi strada or Buell lightning or Triumph Thunderbird Sport or Moto-Guzzi V11 than the same cookie cutter everyone else has.

Thats why I'm Happy, I don't give a ***** what you ride, just what I ride

Default Re: Great question

In 20 years the Buell Firebolt will still be a cool bike. It will be something you can roll out of your garage and bs with the kids about. They will love it.



Those 20 year old king for a day gsxr1000s and r1's will just be outdated.

Kpaul you ignorant ****, are you next going to claim that John Kerry didn't support NAFTA?



That's the problem with ole' John. He has supported everything in the last 20 years... Everything but the military that is.

Default Re: History Made In Gainesville

Porsche had absolutly zero to do with the design and development of this particular motor. It was designed entirely by Vance and Hines specificly to race in this particular niche of drag racing. Very part is a purpose built one off piece for this bike. VWW

Default Re: get your slanders straight

as far as I know Bush never said Iraq was responsible for 9/11, and just the fact that sadam used wmd's on the kurds and iranian's would be enough to suspect the possibility that he still had them

If you want to work on a conspiracy theory, why don't you go with the bush/house of saud/bin laden angle?

Default Re: Why all the hate posts?

True, but there is some good hatin' being handed out to the Ducati's in "Ducati Profits...or not" feedback. I wasn't laughing out loud like I was at these posts though.



Hey, my bottom line on any of this is motorcycles are about enjoying yourself. Damn all the haters and go ride!

Default Re: I'll just get it out of the way now.

Mostly true, but it is still great to see a Harley win Prostock anyway.
