Re: '04 Yamaha Road Star Feedback
 
If anyone is actually in the market for a new Road Star I found a great article on one in motorcyclenews.com.



If anyone is interested in getting to know some dude named EBass, keep reading this website. Rumor has it that next month's issue is NO BIKES, just him modeling next spring's hottest bathrobe designs!



Think I'll just go ridin.

I agree. Do they actually think they are more interesting than the bikes? EBass should set up his own website, and leave this one for motorcycles.

while I'm loathe to type anything here (I'm upchucking a thought, as you may know)...I have to point out that ebass has won this battle.



most of the posts saying that this was a poorly written article have been moderated down to zero or below. unless someone (root, admin) is being unfair, the majority has spoken and have done their best to oust the naysayers. looks like ebass and the bathrobes are here to stay.



I, for one, welcome that (not saying that I like him in bathrobes, just that it's funny).

So they should make liquid cooled, OHC shaft drive cruisers just like the other three Japanese cruiser companies, even though that's not what the majority of the market wants?

Nice read



I like the entertaining parts of your travels. AS to the performance and handling characteristics of a "want a be HOG" youÂ’ve said it all.



For if you want speed; buy a rice rocket.



If you want to enjoy the ride, a cruiser is the only way to go.

Whew!
 
Getting paid by the word, eh? What an exausting article. Just like the bike, it was long on style and short on substance.

Get a new article
 
These articles stay on way too long. A print magazine comes out once per month and has alot of articles. This online version has kept this one article out here for over 2 weeks. Get onto something new. You are screwing us subscribers with this lack of new material. As for the other where readers submit articles or thoughts for us to respond to. That is okay but you don't even pay the submitters. This MO in getting lame. To stay over 2 weeks on a japanese clone cruiser is very weak to say the least.

Re: Get a new article
 
So staying two weeks on a Harley would be okay then? How about two weeks on a sportbike?

All metric cruisers are HD knock-offs sure. Wont take long till they start to ape the HD's new pioneering liquid cooled V2 concept also. Heh heh.
