Mainly, the Yamaha advertising is far superior. You seen the Star Calendar? Nice.

Ya think Gas Prices are going to come down? I don't think so..$3.00/gal is the floor not the ceiling. $4.00 by the end of the summer.. Better trade that BMW in for a hybrid or diesel... or ride to work on your Duc.. I guess you could run diesel in a boat and get a Diesel pusher RV...The future I have been predicting is here Buz....Motorcycles/scooters may become the eco lover choice.. Seen more bikes in the HOV lanes here in Seattle.

I love old bikes. I suck with a wrench. Some people dream of a live-in maid -- I dream of a live-in mechanic.



...no matter how gay that sounds!

Since you've completely missed the point again I'll try to explain it to you.



People do stupid things over things like the price of fuel (which adjusted for inflation still ain't that bad) like trading in their car, taking a huge loss in the process, then paying a premium price for some hybrid car in order to "save money on gas."



Which means that all those fuel burning toys will be availble for the wily purchaser at an enormous discount. There are an awful lot of people who buy high, sell low.



By the way, get a boat that you can trailer cuz gas is much cheaper at the local station than it is at the docks.

Every time I attempt to do something on my own I inevitably screw it up and then take it down to my friend/mechanic's house.



He just looks at me and says, "you do what your best at and let me do what I'm best at."



I'll keep trying though!



Just try calling some of your local shops and say "two-stroke" and all you hear is a click and a dial tone.



There is a local wrench that specializes in CBXs though. My brain just won't let me pay more than the original price for one! There's got to be a little old lady with one.....somewhere.

I like how the advertised mileage of hybrid cars are soooooo far off from being accurate.

From an advertising and marketing standpoint the Suzuki hasn't done much in promoting the M109R.



I wonder why.



The bike was out for quite some time before anyone seemed to do a right up on it.
