Default Re: '04 Yamaha Road Star Feedback

It amazes me that BMW of all companies can't get the FI right. That giant hole in the middle of the torque curve is a ***** too.



My Ducati and H-D are both injected and both have it nailed.



Speaking of which, there are some pretty good deals to be had on Ducati Sport Tourers these days.



....and don't forget a used VFR!!!

Default honestly, evans ..

you spouted:



"Since your actions affect not just your image but that of the rest of the riding public, I questioned why I should value your assessment of the Road Star when you didn't bother to wear a legal helmet. "



your comments raise a couple of questions/observations in my mind:



1) what makes you think anyone cares whether you value the road test?



2) it has been my observation that people who ride cruisers wearing beanies are at CONSIDERABLY lower risk than the average R1 organ donor wearing full racing gear on the street.



3) does your mommy know you are posting to the internet?

Default of course they don't ....

think about that for a sec. what manufacturer WOULD guarantee your safety in a crash, at any speed? answer: a manufacturer soon to be sued out of existance.



let's all agree on two fundamental facts:



1) in a crash at any given speed you are loads better off wearing a helmet.



2) you should have the right to decide whether to risk it.

Are you sure? Honda's been whipping them out like crazy lately...



Also, are you agreeing with me, or trying to counter my argument? I can't tell, and I'm just curious.
