No, Seruzawa San:



I think the MT is a, Way, goofy idea. Especially since Yamaha could'a saved a lot of money by dropping the V-Max motor in the thing, and, probably, ended up with a better bike.



I mean....When Yamaha already had a proven, Sport-Cru...Cruise-Spor...chirp, chirp, croak, chirp, ribbit, chirp...(Aw, Fuc' it!)...the V-Max-Engine, why would they want to want to harness a 1700cc TwoBanger, to their new WhatevertheHellitis. I don't ever recall anyone b!tching about a V-Max not having enough power; do you?

We're shivering 62 today but should warm up to 70 tomorrow so I can put away the electric vest.



I just returned from Motorcycle Purgatory aka Florida. Not only are the roads flat and straight, you've got blue hairs in wrap-around sunglasses trying to kill you at every intersection.

Rode down to Daytona for about 6 years in a row, so I know what you speak of. I wouldn't live down there on a bet.

Maybe Sean could raise money for MO by having Ebay-style auctions for the upcoming road tests.

I don't think Sean wants anyone else making an unauthorized U-turn. It ain't worth the money.



Although, I could ride the 999, or any other bike, over a cliff with the best of 'em.



Sign me up.

It's not just the blue hairs. It's everyone.



Oh, and they've got hurricanes. What a bonus.

BMW has a nifty website for the new K1200S and still no motorcycle.

I think this bike is awesome! Take someone who really likes big V-Twins but would like to have a bike that handles better than a cruiser. What could be better? And if you want more power you know there will be kits available. Heck, if it's a Road Warrior engine, the kits already here!
