Default I'll take a guess

a) the local Harley dealer is a jerk who knows nothing about sportbikes or Buells.



b) nothing sounds as soulful as a Ducati. nothing.



c) Ducatis are currently at the top of the chick food chain. Tell the girlie you're flirting with you have a Duc and she will spin on her heel and walk away from the poser on his $50,000 custom painted chopper.

Default Re: The MO Streetfighter Shootout Part I

Here I was thinking the Buell was a pretty cool bike and up crops the HD attitude..NO BODY rides them stock and NO BODY runs the stock tires.

Oddly enough I expect a bike to work properly when I buy it and run fine from the factory. If I want to change things later I will, I get the same attitude looking at HD's "you have to get a stage one" and ""You need a squeeling Beagle pipe". Sorry sport, I don't have to do a ***** thing. If it don't run stock I won't buy it.

You go to war with the bikes you have, not the bikes you'd like to have.

LOL! it was b, though seriously I got a killer deal on the Duke ($12000) and when I did the home work on bringing the XB12 up to the same power as the Duke, $2000 wouldn't cut it.



Finally, I look ridiculous on the new Buells I get tired of "Hey did ya know there is a motorcycle jammed up yer butt?" comments.

It doesn't sound as arrogant coming from you. I can't find any S4R versus ........ comparos, so I can't even do an imaginary "my wheelbase is shorter than your wheelbase".

How's the passenger accomidations you say? Well, I was sitting on the BACK seat on the Buell for a while on the highway drones, so I guess it would be a bit tight and uncomfortable.

It runs just fine stock. It just sounds like shyt. Trust me on that one. It doesn't need to be nasty noisy, but it doesn't need to sound as bad as it does IMHO.

That's a particularly asinine comment on a motorcycle forum, I don't know if you've noticed, but 90% of all riders modify/ customise their rides in some way not just HD/ Buell riders.



How about that ice water enema to cool off?
