Oh yeah its bold alright bold and ugly like an Edsel
Hey Japanese bikes look different not all look alike. And the Japanese bikes are beautiful. Take a Goldwing vs. Nighthawk vs. VFR vs. VMax vs. Hayabusa vs. R1 vs ZX-12 vs Concours vs. Mean Streak vs VTX vs Warrior.

This BMW has the lights of an Edsel and way over priced.

You must be new here: MO rules of conduct
MO rules:
[*]Never put down Harleys cause even though what you say may be true you will hurt the gray pony tail brothers feelers. And they get really upset about it
[*] Never say you don't like cruisers because they perform like a tub of lard , cause cruiser guys are really into the group thing. So you are not fittin in with the club.
[*] Never say you like Japanese bikes cause someone will say you are UnAmerican. Or call you a squid
[*] Never say you like BMWs cause that makes you a Eurotrash snob
[*] Never criticize the AMA cause we are damn lucky to have those boys fightin those mandatory helmet laws.

OK I think that covers it.

Please, tell me where I can go and plunk down 16k on this beauty! I live in Oz right next to the Tin Man across the street from the Cowardly Lion. Someone at Bavarian Motor Werks has a vivid imagination that would best be served by creating something other than motorcycles...

There really is some appreciated etiquette, actually. Try not ta go off on Harley without SOME sorta base in the discussion. On that note, assaulting any group of poeple, or stereotyping them to an ugly extreme is considered rude in just about any medium.

And try to resist the urge to reply to KPaul. Validation might make him post more.

Read what I said again, and maybe you will get it next go-round. If all you have is moronic things to say why reply at all? Your zx-6 is the best example of what I was talking about. I never said ALL OF THEM LOOK ALIKE. I said there would be more choices IF ALL mfgs. tried to go their own way with styling and engines. I never stated that the Japanese were the only ones at fault. Time for you to go to Wal-Mart and go buy a clue. I think they are on sale this week.

Too bad is isn't worth even close to $8000 now. After the new 626 is out it won't be worth keeping. Go trade it in and get the "Japanese Tax"! You were already talking about selling it because you rode a "WHOLE 150 miles" and it sucked! Imagine if you were a real motorcyclist that actually rode somewhere, it would suck even worse. Some wonderful and unique machine there. I guess you should stand up when you talk because your voice is muffled otherwise. Go deep six it and buy the next "wonder" machine to brag about. After six moths you will "wonder" why you bought it. Been there, done that.

I don't mean to scare anybody, but close your eyes and imagine this bike in safety yellow...

Heh, heh. Pretty funny, Kpaul! There is indeed some truth in there.

You forgot:

Don't ever admit you ride dirtbikes. They're not really motorcycles, you know.
