Re: '04 Yamaha Road Star Feedback
Where did MO get this guy Bass??? There may be 100 words of actual information in this tome. Cut down the personal crap and give us information on the motorcycles. Otherwise your future as a motorcycle hack will be deservedly short.

An excellent, excellent narrative from the 220 pound bald, goateed, soggy, surly biker. It's 12:30 and finally my day is off to a good start.

As for the bike, it looks nice and it rides nicely. What else do you want from a cuiser... oh yeah, more noise. Probably get that from Yamaha's accessory line. What else do you need to know?

A lot of nice pics to complement the narrative, too. Well done, EBass.

Only next time get pics of the fem-bots, eh?

Re: '04 Yamaha Road Star Feedback
be nice, Badwinger! this is the first cruiser review in an eternity! Like it or not this site is a sportsbike site first and foremost. However, It would be nice to have an equivalent style of cruiser reporting that the MO guy in Italy does with the sportsbikes. IMHO the best cruiser reviews are the shootouts.

Stupid helmet
I just love this guy's riding gear. Why would I respect the opinion of someone who thinks his head is nothing more than a fashion statement?

Did I just call another motojournalist a poser? I think I did.

Re: Stupid helmet
I bet if you were standing right next to him, you wouldn't call him anything. Just a hunch.

Re: '04 Yamaha Road Star Feedback
it would have been nice to actually read something about the is what we pay for is it not?

Re: Stupid helmet
What, you want him in a full-face helmet and full leathers on
a cruiser?

I agree with longride, it's best to just call EBass "sir" to his face... but it's fun to rib him when he can't get ahold of you... ;-)

Re: '04 Yamaha Road Star Feedback
Well, it's only part of what _I_ pay for. I'll agree it seemed a bit weak on content about bike, but at least it was entertaining! Now about those fem-bot pix...

i was all set to upchuck ...
your launch story of the K-LT a few years ago nearly made me vomit, so i was prepared to react similarly this time. but i like this new guy; liked the fleshed-out story, the humor, and the bike facts. the guy is a keeper. see if you can keep him around, okay?
