Default Me Too!

Congrats! I once had a job as a bill-collector, back in my twenties. I'd just gotten a divorce and lost my job, so since I owed the loan company money, I applied for the job and got it. I worked for 8 months, never collected a dime, and I was more social worker, than bill-collector. If I wasn't the worst bill-collector ever, I can't imagine who was (I'd have fired me). Luckily, I still owed them money, so they laid-me-off so I could collect unemployment.

If Suzuki hasn't-already had a heads-up, about updating the SV, they need their ears cleaned out. Either that, or they're stupid! Not only has the SV been losing comparos, it's come-in last at-least once. Still, Hyosung's $600 price advantage, over the SV 650, wouldn't be enough for me to consider it.



The Hyosung 650 cruiser, on the other hand, looks-like it has more shiny-surface than the Chrysler Building. That's gonna turn some heads. (Who-cares if it might-just-possibly-be junk, it's really-very-extremely shiny!)

I'm just waiting-for the post-US slaughter. Blood-bath - televised or not - is hard to come by. Mutilated children are "so cute!"

History repeats itself, remember the 60's?

Default Is it me, or does this thing look hinky?

If you havenÂ’t done so, on page 4 of the link, check out the cruiser. The bike look nice, but I gotta problem with the top section of the frame. The downward curve, of the frame-tube, seems too long. Unless itÂ’s better braced somewhere, I canÂ’t see, it looks like the bike might lack stiffness (if not, some structural-integrity). Would somebody, smarter than me, mind commenting on this?

Don't ever knock 125s. I used to have a ball racing my '73 CB125, revving the living pi$$ out of it, on the roads around Little Sahara, Utah. I must've gotten it up to near 60 on the downhills. That's one bike that I could be sure of getting 100% out of. I bet that little Hyosung 125 V-twin would be a laugh riot.

Yeah. Probably heard it last, too.
