Ya know, I gotta read Catcher in the Rye, sometime.



The only book that ever really wigged me out was Naked Lunch; and, that was because I found out that Burroughs and I have the same birthday...Trust me; that'll give you the heebee-jeebees.

They were all Flexi-Flyers then. I don't remember the CBX as being any worse than the rest. I know you've been riding awhile so you'll remember that tires weren't that hot either back then so everything worked as a whole.

If you put modern radials on a late 70's- early 80's bike and tried to thrash it I'm sure the tires would stick, the frame would flex and store kenetic energy like a spring and fling you screaming into the weeds LOL

The V65 engine in the Intercepter frame did pretty well, in the Sabre it was a total blast trying to drag race V-Max's and XS1100's, 'specialy in the rain. You'd both be spinnin' and grinnin' and not going anywhere...fun as hell!

I read Catcher in the Rye in high school, but I didn't go nuts.

The only book that really got me was Dark Rivers of the Heart, by Koontz. That guy has issues.

Buzz asks: "Can a man have two MV Agustas?"



Only if he's willing to share them with his local motorcycle magazine. -Sean

Yeah, Koontz seems to come from a place, he knows a bit too well. While, King seems to like writing horror, Koontz seems to write it because he doesn't have a choice. Hey, what do I know.



I just wish those two would collaborate on a story, about digging up, and beating the hell outa Herman Melville, for writing that awful, long-winded, self-indulgent, piece of crap called Moby ****. And, while they're at it, they could ***** on James Fenimore Cooper's grave; if it's not too much bother.



Christ! Melville, and Cooper, make ****ens read like a Sports Writer.

The one that I could never figure out was the Kawasaki, 2stroke 750s. Those things took out so many mail-boxes, thier pictures were hung in the Post Office. I'm mean, it's not like it would have taken a whole lot to stiffen up the frame on one of those things. Sure woulda saved alot of cows, from havin the $h!t scared outa them. But, like you said, that's the way it was.



I almost bought a Sabre, a couple years ago, but my legs were, and still are, too short.



Far as todays sportbikes go, if Suzuki could squeeze 80 hp out of the SV650 and put a real suspension under it, the payment book would be empty for years, before I ever thought of getting rid of it.
