Default Already reviewed it...

This MO SV1000S review was published a little over a year ago



and this MO SV1000 vs Z1000 mini shootout was published last September



All you need to do is click on the "BIKES" tab on the homepage and you can see every bike review we've ever done.

Yeah, Bore "lost" Florida, but what about all the minority voters who didn't get to vote. You can't have forgotten about all of the nefarious tactics used by the right wing to swing the state of Florida in their favor, have you? Either way, with or without Florida, Bore still won the popular vote. As in more Americans voted for Bore than they did for LostintheBush.



Whatever. They're all whack. Can I just vote no confidence in the whole process?

Thanks for the article guys. It sounded like a good time, if not lucky . These bikes aren't my cup of tea but to each his own. As always the posts, relevant and otherwise, are a good part of the show.

Not really... the V-Rod doesn't have much of a chance there.

You are the most vocal about what you believe in, but I just thought I'd let you know that you are not alone in how you feel.



I'm with Kpaul.



Republicans/right-wingers are usually either idiots, self-serving arseholes, or some combination of both. Not to mention dirty capitalist pigs who would sell out their fellow man for the almighty dollar. I just came back from a conference in Baltimore and I had the chance to hang out with people of various political affiliations. To a man, I'd say, the republicans among us were the most insufferable anal sphincters, not to mention closet racists. The Jewish community has a saying, "Pour in a little wine, get out a little truth." It's amazing and appalling the things that will come out of these people's mouths after a few drinks.



There is a place for these kind of people. It's called Hell. It's just unfortunate the rest of us have to suffer because of them while they're still living.



No worries though. I would say that for the most part it's better to ignore them. I doubt, Kpaul, that you will convert any of the right-wingers here. But I do commend you on your ability to ***** them off. I love it. It's awesome how they all react and gang up on you or call anyone that disagrees with them "Kpaul Jr."



You've done good work.



As for all the threats of physical violence, it is something I would expect of lesser intelligent beings. That being said, if anyone did step up to you, I figure you would do the right thing and resort to a nonviolent resolution. But if push really came to shove, I have your back.



That sad thing is I more or less like all of the guys who attack you, or are annoyed/pissed-off by you. They do have something to offer to the world outside of politics, and I know we could all benefit from their life experiences. I'm sure if it came down to it, we'd all just be better off going out for a fun ride and then ending the day with some brews.

Default Willie G, you listening?

We know you all look at MO, but do you actually read the comments and act upon them? See the V-Rod comments? 2 complaints over and over again, why no real sport tourer and the gas tank needs to be bigger. What do we have to do, build the damn thing for you all? I would sell my 2003 E-Glide Classic in a minute for a V-Rod tourer or sport tourer. Just a note, why do you think I also ride BMWs? Hmm, might sell the K bike for a V-Rod tourer at that....If BMW NA reads this, just figure that you have moved away from me as a customer lately....Harley just hasn't moved enough in my direction with the V-Rod...

Default almost forgot

The kingpin (where in the hell did that lame ass name come from) is still just another clone, a really nice thought out one, but still a clone of a Harley. Even its design guru, Arlen Ness, makes clones of Harleys, very very nice clones, but still clones......face it, all the "custom" bike builders and "metric" cruisers are nothing more than clones filling a gap HD has left for them in the Market place. Isn't that nice of H-D.......allowing all these fine folks to go down poorly choosen style paths and using obsolete engine designs so H-D does not have too.....they have enough of their own already.



Let's see, that should ***** off all sides, that was fun....

Default Re: almost forgot

I'm sure you just got caught up in trying to make your point, but I have to protest when you accuse Arlen Ness of doing nothing but making clones of Harleys. His custom work includes some of the most original and imaginative bikes ever built. Sorry man, but I couldn't let that slide.



Otherwise, I agree. The masses are clamoring to see that Revolution engine wrapped in a variety of packages and rightly so. Maybe if we all jump up at a pre-appointed time and shout "Hey, Willie G!" when we land, the earth will move and the H-D brass will heed our MOronic call. Hey, I've had dumber ideas.
