Default Granny-Specs...

Long as she don't creak louder than the bed, she'll do just fine.



Hate it when they go "Crunch," or click their false teeth...Poly Grip's sorta fun, thought, if ya know where to use it (whaddya know, grossed myself out, again).

Default The MO Streetfighter Shootout Part I

I've said it before, but it's worth saying again.

Thanks, Buz, for offering up your Brutale to be thrashed--I mean tested--by this crew. And thus all the MOFOs get to vicariously sample it.



The damn thing is art.



Are you going to bring it to Laguna in July? Or the venerable ST4?

Default Re: Great Job!!!!!

Ain't nothing perfect, but I think the bigger guys are gonna fare better, on the Speed Triple and the FZ-1.



In that case, the price-point comparison (if it's considered) should play a pretty big part in deciding the winner...As long as, the S-Tri doesn't have that funky- pink-paint- job.



Looks shouldn't count that much, but...eeew!

Default Speed 3

Thank goodness there is no universal opinion on bikes. with that said, I fell for a low price on a speed triple. I thought the speed triple had a great motor, but it didn't handle well. obviously i have no idea of your needs, but it ain't all that for sure. I swallowed hard got rid of it and am much happier with an sv1000s with some suspension upgrades.

Default Hey, it's pink. Ya can't handle that?

Y'know, j, that "nuclear red" (give me a freakin' break, it's pink) paint job is one of my favorite factory paint jobs of all time.



The speed triple by itself is sort of a metaphorical poke in the gob. And the roulette green is the right direction. But pink? Man, that's completely over the top.

Whoa! tough crowd! At least Al has the grace not to trash his Elders! Notice how I tried to get in with Longride? I find it wise to try not to ***** off guys that big.

You, my large and entertaining bro, should know better than anyone what a tough crowd MO is. You may take solace in the fact that unless you are KPaul, however, that a raft of $hit is a sign of comraderie and respect. Back of the bus rules!!



Besides exactly who is the elder here?????

I have a 02 ZRX1200 and 02 Futura. It is a sickness. I should shut-up and ride. But, I have visions of a "better" bike in my future. How does the SV stack up with the VTR? I can't seem to find a direct comparo.
