Wait a year. I wouldn't be surprised if they send a few over for 2006. Keep your eye on Buell though in the mean time 'cause I hear they will be introducing something new around the 3rd week of July.

Not only that, but Harley stock is going to go into a tailspin ANY TIME NOW!



Used HD's will be a dime-a-dozen!



You heard it here first!







(Is anyone keeping track of how many times Harley has been forecast to be on the precipice?)

As much as I love Yamaha's, I'm betting they'll do the same thing with the MT-01 as they did with the FJR. They'll wait a year to get feedback on the bike and see how much interest there is based on the amount of b*tching and complaining they receive. Then, they'll institute a stupid ordering system which completely removes the drive by shopper from ever buying one. Once someone buys one (like I did with the FJR) they'll make all the important tweaks to the bike "after" it has been here a year or so, instead of doing it before it ever lands on our shores! "What a great way to stick it to the initial buyers who stuck their necks out to buy the first allotments!" However, I could be wrong. They might just make the intelligent decision to bring it over the same year they come out with a whole new V-Max.......the year 2999.

Invade Europe and annex it. It shouldn't take much more than a .22 pistol and a bad scowl.



Once your ears stop ringing from all the "I Surrender!"'s, you should be able to get any motorcycle you want.

Probably get a few women and a chateau in the south of France, too. Problem is, the citizens of the great European Socialist Republic will expect Allbikes to start taking care of them. He won't have any time to ride.

I don't know anything more than that. Got the info off the Badweather XB board.

Default But... the consequences!

I don't know Buz. If he invades Europe he's liable to receive a very sternly worded letter of disapproval from the United Nations.
