I've heard thats's what they're going to do with the 1300, I've also read where they're going to concentrate on the retro and cruiser lines so who knows?

The idiot states that Honda likes racing inline fours. WOW. What a fuc&ing prediction. Kinda like saying a bear likes to shyt in the woods. I wonder if he predicted that they do that too?

Default Re: Casual Protective Gear

I have the Alpinestars pants, but haven't crashed (hope I don't need to test that part). The pants though are relatively cool, pads stay in place (while riding), and work with or without pants beneath.... at least it's hard to see that your going commando if that's your thing. Easy on and off helps too.

Default Re: KPaul looking for cool jeans

I have a pair of Hood Jeans. Got them last year. About $90 at that exchange rate, so more now. I got them over the Draggin Jeans as they have a full Kevlar set inside, so it doesn't have the "patched" look of the Draggin Jeans. So far so good. Haven't crash tested them. I use them for commuting, but for trips and sport riding I use the Aerostich.

They run a bit small in the waist, but a bit long. Something to keep in mind if you order them.

Overall I give them a thumbs up.

BMW has some similar jeans. I looked at them, but they were about $250 and didn't fit quite right on me.

There's also a company in Israel called Brosh or BroshTex with some similar stuff.

Sounds like MO needs "casual gear round 2"

Better pipe down with that... based on KPaul's wooing of that new guy tony, he might be aroused by the reference to 'Deliverance'...

Would kpaul be the one squealing like a pig or the inbred stump-***** three-tooth hill-scroogin playing the banjo?

Without a doubt the banjo player. Come to think of it, that would explain a lot.....

Default Re: 4 is the holy number of engines.

You just don't listen, do you? Do you really think all the people spending $17K on a 999 are going to rush out and triple their investment for this thing? Really? Are you that ***** stupid?

Default Draggin' Jeans Chafe at High-Temp

Alright, I just got back from about 100 miles of twisty strafing in my Draggin' Jeans Carpenter Pants, and this is the first time I've worn them since it started getting nice and toasty out (around 90F today), and I've gotta tell you, if you're going to be spending a lot of time on the bike in warm to hot weather, and you move around in the saddle at all, these things will start seriously binding up and chafing your ass. They're good for about 50 miles or so in the heat, then they suck. FWIW.
