Oh, yeah, right. I forgot I'm an idiot.



Although, logically, if I'm accused of being an idiot by someone like KP, might that indeed make me the smartest person in the universe?



Let's ponder that.

Of course socialism set him off. His boy Kerry has the number one ranking for positive voting on liberal issues, yet is trying to position himself as a moderate. Too bad that even so called moderates on our new politcal yard stick are also flaming socialists, just witness Bush's no child left behind, medicare presciptions for the the elderly, and his call for increasing the "legal" number of Mexican immigrants programs.

Do us all a favor pdad, and just ignore Kp's idiotic trolls. If he just keeps talking to himself perhaps he will be ensnared by Bush's proposed mental health screening boondogle. VWW

Default Re: What Did We Do To Tick'em Off

As I am sure someone else has pointed out, motorcycles are looked at differently in Europe than the states. Bikes don't have the same "Outlaw" or "Racer Squid" image in Europe.



I spent over 8 years in Europe, and, for them, it's perfectly OK to ride a 500 twin that goes 100 MPH max. They also like utility more than we do, hence the proliferation of small standards and enduro-tourers.



On the plus side, we have a lot more cruisers, and bikes are generally cheaper in the states.

Default Re: Bonnie's are cruisers

Sorry if it offends, but I have to place the current Bonne into the cruiser category.



The current Bonnie riding position is very much a copy of the last of the Meriden Bonnies. My own 1970 came with a high rise US Spec bar to appeal to the cruiser rider - that word wasn't used then.



Some of us, a small minority, replaced the high US bar with a European style low bar to return the bike to the proper riding position of the early Triumphs. To this day most old Brit bike riders retain the high US bar.



I find the Hinckley Bonnies, to ride just like the old Triumphs, very comfortable at low speeds (70 now versus 60 then). And when I'm about done riding motorcycles, I'm going to sell off all my bikes except my '70 and buy a new Hinckley Bonne.
