Default Re: David Ogilvy Would be Proud

My problem, with having fantasies come true, is, reality never lives up to the fantasy. Being a half-century-old, I've come to realize that, no matter what I own, I'm still stuck being me.



And, that leaves me to decide, whether I'd rather enjoy, the real experience of riding, or the subjective experience of being admired (by people I donÂ’t know) for someone I might not be.



IÂ’ve owned a very expensive Eames Chair and a cheap, Lazy Boy recliner. And, though the Eames got lots of Oohs and Aahs, the Lazy Boy is the one IÂ’d rather curl up in, with a good book.



One of the great things about coming of age in the late 60s, early 70s is, once youÂ’ve recovered, reality becomes much clearerÂ…And, to be honest, a good bit more absurd.

Kpaul:



While I agree with you on the In-line-four, Bang-for-the-buck, issue, I have to say that, for me, twins are just a hellava lot more fun to ride.



Far as twins goining tits-up in racing, you may be right, but I'll wait to see what happens, when KTM enters the fray, before filling in the grave.

After owning a F4S for a couple of years I was lucky enough to buy an F4 1000 Ago (number 100) this August. Over the last couple of months riding I canÂ’t get over how much I love riding it. Oh, and installing the open RG3 exhaust pipes makes the bike sound good too as well as considerably reducing the heat under the seat. Well worth the extra bucks IMHOÂ….
