I think I've figured out why there is no 'perfect all round motorcycle'... Nobody can decide what the hell it is. I sure as heck wouldn't buy anything that has been suggested so far.

I believe this is the best bike suggested so far (after my bike of course). This is not a bike, this is poetry.

I am from Finland, I live in Buenos Aires. Unlike many people believe, where you are could be different from where you are actually from.



For example, you sound you could be from Gadsden, county Etowa, Ala. but you could still live in Oneonta in Blount. Then people would ask you "You´re going to have to explain whether you´re in Gadsden, Etowa or in Oneonta, Blount".



My Fatso is from Brazil. It does not only carry Rio plates but it was actually made in Manaus.

Yeah, rate of change is easier to see with analog. I'm wondering why they can't project your speed or whatever value you want to see onto the back side of, at the very least, a sportbike's windscreen. My VFR speedo goes to 175 MPH, so the numbers are so tiny that I've put little markers at 35, 55, 75, and 'don't get arrested' The tach, I just go by position; if it's somewhere between about 10 O'clock and 1 O'clock, I'm good. People with better eyes might be able to read more, but I'll wager most people are keeping a watch on their tachs the same way I do when they get busy.

Default Re: You guys got it all wrong!

Why do sport bikes always have crappy seats, and, apparently inadequate headlights? And why do all bikes have wussy horns? I put in a relay and can make some real noise. The dealer wouldn't install it because the mechanic said I didn't need it! I ran a wire direct from the battery, with a fuse and a relay, and it works just fine. From the dealers attitude, I think we can safely assume that complaints are not taken very seriously. At least in Fairfield. They do have hot umbrella girls, though.

How dare you! Third planet called Kurb ! Kerb is automotive term used by not worthy earthmen to pointlessly describe weight of their miserably inefficient vehicles
