I'm just glad you're up and still posting. I'm bored, oh and I know you're a Bosstones fan which makes you good people. God, I'm drunk. I'm having a Kings of Leon kind of night....their latest is really growing on me. As for the Buell, I actually feel kinda weird abouts them becauz I;ve only ridden the 12'z and not the 9'z. And from what I've heard they are different bikes. So, the irony is, that as a Buell owner, of the XB12, I have no opinion about the Xb9 whatsoever. Except that I've heard it's better, and more funz, and more wheely stuff like. And my nigerian brother is prince for your pleaseure/.

I've been drinking midori all night which isnt strong...ok its weak as **** and tastes like sugar water, but man a half a bottle still is good lube....

If i were to buy one it would be the XB9xs. I was still riding just in dirt when in the middle of the winter i found out i have scholiosis so no more motorbicycles for me till i get myself better.... not to mention get a license...

Test riding the Bonnie tomorrow, we'll see how it goes. Crazy, the 3 MG shops in my area STILL don't have a line on a V7 - I guess those stories about MG aren't so untrue.

Haven't see W650s for sale oddly but did see stuff like CX500s which probably would suit my needs cheaply if I can get over lack of EFI/rear disc which I know 99% of the motorcyclists out there would say I shouldn't care about.

A friend of mine just closed the deal on a leftover Bonnie T100. There is a decent amount of old stock just waiting to be bought at reduced prices and low financing (if you plan on financing it). However, you won't get the 17" wheels, lower seat and FI on an '08. Triumph is also running a promotion on Saturday at participating dealers on '09 bikes. Check the website for details.

I've also heard that MG may not be bringing the V7 Sport to the U.S. Don't know if that's true or not.

And I, for one, am not drunk but I'm seriously considering it.

V7 is not on Guzzi USA's website. It's not being sold here.

If you were okay with standards/sportbikes, I'd say look at a Ninja 250 or 500. But since you're looking at "cruisers", you should also check out the Vulcan 500. Really. It's not as classy (if that's the word) as a Harley/Triumph/Guzzi, but it should make you happy. And it's cheaper, too!
