Well, Pete, this is really going to p*ss off my buddy that just bought a 636. Great write up.

15 degrees?



Pah! Give me a call when it gets COLD!



It was 8 (F) on the ride to work Thursday and Friday (35mi one-way), with windchill in the negative.

Great writeup Pete. You got me all fired up now and want a new Ninja for The Race. I'll take one in black. Can't wait till the middle weight shoot out. Ninja has no steering damper vs. the 600 RR electronic model. The RR has no slipper clutch vs the Ninjas.. [b] Jingle Bells Jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh what fun it is to ride on a Ninja all day

For some people an hour is the same as "all day".

Well, it takes a lot of time prepping for the ride.



You need to call the rental shop to see if they are open.

Drive to rental shop.

See what bikes are available.

Pick a bike.

Fill out the paperwork for the rental.

Than you need to rent the helmet and gear.

Fill out more paperwork.

Drive home with gear and rented bike.

Put on gear.

Drive bike around in circles on your driveway to see if you remember how to ride.

Do a few laps around the neighborhood.

Than venture out onto the open road.



And than of course you have to return everything back to the rental shop.



So really, an hour is all he has.

* Interest rates drop!

* U.S. household wealth at record high!

* V-Fours too expensive for widespread street application! V-Twin is optimal street engine!



I am the GGK (Great Goateed Kpaul). The smoothfaced Kpaul is from the insane alternate universe. His brain is puddled from repeated Agonizer application.

Default Short rebuttal

*Largest deficits ever will drive rates up not down. i.e. the Government competes with private industry and consumers for credit.

*Largest home ownership during Clinton years due to balance budgets causing lower interest rates. Now folks are paying off their mortgages thus increasing their wealth. Has nothing to do with Bush.

*V-4 will be the next thing in high end sport bikes first then will trickle down. Hell its history repeating itself VFR, Magnum, VMax, ST1300, already are V-4s so that kind po pos your logic..



There is only one GMP

Not baggin' on your buddy, but what's going to p*ss him off? Not having that extra 1% performance in the top 10% of the performance that he already will never be able to exploit?
