What's wrong with calling a bike with genuine, real world usable improvements a new model?

Kerry's monastic reverberations have been found to kill small animals, and insects.



It takes folks with a natural ability for pomposity, to be able to drone on like that for seemingly hours.



And by virtue of doing just that for 20 years, JFK has honed it to a fine art. He talks a lot, without making any clear decision, one way or the other. Draw your own conclusions.



He's either a gun-toting commie killer, or he's sucking babies out of the womb with a shop vac.



BTW, I just bought a 1969 CL350 (Burnt Orange) with 5000 original miles on the clock. Like new. Original owner. Manuals, warranty cards..etc.



Cripes, and I was saving up for a Buell..oh well.

Default iBuell CityX

I positively take off my hat to Buell's outlandish thinking with the new iBuell. Simply outstanding, outrageous and a must have in the motorcycle coffers. With the trend being bigger--bigger rear wheels; bigger engines; bigger egos, it is uncommonly refreshing to see the iBuell CityX getting back to the essence of motorcycling--agile, competent, motorcycle design.

Yeah, took a peak at the GS last night, before I bought the Honda.



Pretty shot. Looked like it was part of an artificial reef at one time. The guy wouldn't budge on the price, either. Made an ominous clunk-ckunk sound, at idle. Like a VW with a bad main.



So, now I've got two 350 Honda twins. I'm set with cheap transportation for at least another decade.

A short slam? No way, I just thought you might enjoy telling Sean, and Canet how you scrape the foot pegs every time you ride a new Buell. VWW

You got that right. I just went down to our Triumph dealer and sat on the new Rocket III.

Very large including the back wheel. I'll bet the buell can run circles around the Rocket except in a drag race.

Well at least the CL is the "Scrambler" model, so you can do a little off road exporation if the opportunity arises. VWW
