I'm right behind you. I told my dealer that if he hears anything in the direction of the MT01 coming here, to let me know and I'll be there in 10 minutes with the deposit check.

Check with that cultural anthropologist on your speed dial to see how many doughboys brought back hairy french widows.

Well, the fact is that Europe and France specifically get all the best bikes first. The reason is that on average, they ride more than we do. I had a Buell and I loved it but I would certainly buy an MT-01 if it was available here.

You mean the proctologist market has been saturated?

Maybe its less that they ride more (If that is in fact true) than Europe is a less litigious place to do teir Beta testing.

You are probably right. They also have several good manufactures. (MV, Aprilia, KTM, Ducati, Triumph, BMW, etc..). We need more like that.

Buell is, to my knowledge, the only American sport bike builder beside a couple of very small operations.

Say Johnny... maybe if France had been smart enough to build that massive unbreakable wall all the way to the coast, they wouldn't have had so many young widows.



Walls don't do ya much good when huge armies can simply drive around them.



Morons.



And as for your germany analogy... you're showing your ignorance. Mexico and Canada are what they are because we beat them down long ago. We took much of mexico and named it Texas. We'd have done the same to the nancy boy krouts too.



Same with the sissy-mary canucks too.



If germany was bording America, we'd have neutered them much sooner than we did.

Invading Europe is easy. Keeping it is hard.



As fast as the MT-01 is, you can't get from the Cote D'Azure to the Spanish dance clubs to Amsterdam and back to Monaco in a day, let alone make a pit stop in Paris or a side-ride through Luxembourg. How is anyone supposed to keep all the daughters of the old wealth happy, properly suntan oiled and adequately preening? The image of Europe has to be maintained and I don't think the MT-01 is the bike to do it.



I suggest that once everyone's hands are in the air, the new despot enlist the Irish as his secret police. No one suspects the Irish Inquisition, after all, and even with the MT-01, the despot will need a hand or two.
