Default Re: The MO Streetfighter Shootout Part I

From personal experience my Tuono has had zero problems after two years and 17000 miles. From what I understand Aprilia's are pretty solid.

That's a good question. If I drive the RV up I'll find a trailer and tow the MV. If I ride up it will be the Duc for sure. Also if I bring the Duc I get to partake of Ducati Island which is very convenient if you ride to the track.



Can you see me pulling up to the Island on the MV? lol I was at Oceanside Aprilia/Ducati a month ago on the MV to pick up a tail bag and all the customers walked out of the store to check it out. The sales guy looked at me and said (jokingly), "can you leave now?" He was just closing a deal on a Monster.



Of course it is tempting to take the Geezer Glide to Laguna Seca. Can you just see me on the parade lap on that thing? It would be hysterical!

Nah. They dug a secret tunnel under the Pacific Ocean and sneaked a Honda engineer in to do it. It had to be. Right? The whole universe would come crashing down for some people otherwise. Right?

I was kidding Martin, my man. You are very easy to hang with. You just can't drink worth a crap!

unfortunately, as i recall, the computer got it wrong and they recalled a bunch of the first XBs to throw on a bigger pulley... or maybe i just dreamed that?

anyhoo, i told you so. Buell is cool. I still like 9s a little better than 12s I think. Revs a little higher, runs a little smoother, and feels just about as fast in everyday use.

I need that Triple like a fat kid needs cake !!



I ordered one in November, and if I don't see a review soon, I'll go on a 5 state killing spree.

Default Awww man

Of course no offense was taken but I gotta respond or its like sharks with blood in the water.



All of you 19' tall rascals are alike. If you didn't have the body mass of a fair-sized offensive line all to yourself you wouldn't have been able to finish that second tankard standing either



Seriously - one of the funniest moments of the whole three days was when you, Sean and I went out to breakfast the first morning and they crammed the three of us into that small booth and Sean said "Gee, it's nice to be around normal (sized) people for a change"

I'd better step-in, before you girls start kissing and fondling each other.



Dale: You're [/i]only[/i] my brother, cause I can pick my nose and my friends, but not my relatives.



Longride: Your brain is every bit as crooked as your local Chicago political establishment.



Martin: You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny.



(Aww... I love all three of you... Merry Christmas! -Sean)
