Still tilting at windmills, I see.



Don't bother. Kpile is just another spoiled kid who's been afforded the greatest prosperity in the history of the world and can only repay it with viciousness.



No sense arguing with a fool so abysmally stupid as to believe that the US economy has any relation to Argentina's or that Irag is comparable to Vietnam.



But it is interesting to see just how worthless a college education can be. You know what they say, "Send an idiot to college. Get back a college educated idiot."

Why not smoking on the beach? Are you a facist or a communist? I don´t smoke but what´s the point of these empty rules?



Also, when I was in Miami, there was no drinking of beer on the beaches! What do these guys think God invented the beaches for? I mean, Jesus himself turned water into wine in a party.

I can't speak for other Korean bikes, but I have seen an Alpha up close and I think the bike looked damn good.

Not necessarily. The Japanese did not have serious competition back then. Brits kept producing year after year bikes that you could buy instruction manuals on how to fix factory faults and design errors.

I agree, see my missive up-post about my wifes Sonata, it's an excellent car and warrantied to the moon. I think the Koreans are going to be viable players in the market.



I still find a lot of low end Chinese parts like tools and nuts and screws are pot metal, but I wouldn't count them out in the long run.



We're selling them a lot of rope.

I'm in total agreement on cheeseball Chinese parts - and a trip to Harbor Freight is about all it takes to enlighten the unenlightened.



Now if that rope were made of hemp......

I think they're still undergoing emmissions testing, but I'm not sure. The Canadian distributor seems to be shooting for the spring; I would expect Alphasports is too.
