Default Re: What's the highwayman's take?

I'm wondering if Drab Retsinab is any relation to Ecar Retsinab, my childhood hero from Ynnoj Tseuq?

Your right Sean, The R1 is pure eye candy. An FZ1 is more my style but this is a fine looker fer sur'

Did you have to put screws in the tires so you can get traction on the ice?



You can leave it here in San Diego and I'll keep it for you in my garage until the spring thaw.

Congrats on the new acquisition. A nice blend between your Harley and ZX-9, Longride.

I'm not sure about this "whole hog" business, but I can hear the foundations of the Burger Barn trembling right now.

Well, if Buz takes the Duck and you have a Suz 1200, I gotta take the ZX9 to beat yer butts, otherwise Buz takes the Geezer and I do too and leave parts and oil all the way there, with you outta site in the distance. I figure the Shovelhead would be cool, but I don't think you and Buz could push me half way to Alaska! LOL

As the world is my witness, I'm asking nicely to be invited on this Sport Touring trip. Heck I might even expense a dinner or two under the guise of "story research".

Sure! The answer is "Yes" the R1 can be both smooth and explosively powerful. Heck even a 5 year old 600 can be explosively powerful, if you are willing to use the clutch and ride it like a 125 MX bike. Clutch or no clutch however, any of the current 1000cc supersports easily qualifies as explosively powerfull, any time they are on the cam.

As far as I'm concerned this ride is an open invitational..... except for HeWhoCan'tBeNamed.
