Seruzawa often times your post are irreverent but sometimes your posts are simply great and this is one of those times when youÂ’re right on. When I was shopping around for a new bike my three final choices where all Naked standards.

To answer the questions; It's not too big. It's ok in my book. It will end when we say it will. Pats will win the Bowl. Tony Stewart would wipe the floor with Valentino.

Minimalist taste?
Didn't you say your were 6' and three bills?

Minimalist taste indeed!

Hopefully ELF (Earth Liberation Front) will not treat the Vulcan riders the same way they treat the Hummer drivers

Demographics for Dummies
It will take years for the cruiser market to decline (not collapse) because it will take years for the baby boomers to stop riding motorcycles and move to wheel chairs.

Why KPaul is GREAT and longride is not.
"To answer the questions" Who asked you. Everyone knows you are out to lunch. "Pats will win the Bowl" That is really going out on a limb longride. That is why you will never be great like me, you only predict the obvious.

"And if prospective owners think that Harley owners are going to stand up and take notice"

You seem to have a very low opinion of us but we are not totally stupid. Not all of us anyway. I am a H-D owner but how could I not take notice my fatso has 72 lb-ft and Kawi has 122 lb-ft?

These are staggering figures. That's like putting a third cylinder on the H-D and still Kawi has 13% advantage.

Now I can blow good money on mods to get more grunt. That would be like putting loadsa effort and money into training Pee Wee Herman to take on Tyson.

Re: Get it before it's moot!
I can't understand your "too little" comment. With the same logic, what would have been "enough?

"Again, H-D owners don't give a damn?"

Again, H-D owners do give a damn. At least I do.

Ok so if your butt gets waxed moderately (10-20% like Road Star) thats ok because you could always think you are eventually going Stage II or something.

But when the other bike has like +70% torq as standard, you have to really float in the H-D hype not to give a damn. Yeah float.
