Yeah, the guy's definitely Satan.



He could sell you a liver and limburger sandwich, then convince you that vomiting was good for you.



He should start a side-line business, calling up our wives and telling 'em what great ideas we have ( motorcycles, big screen TVs, really cute nanny for the kids).



He'd make a forturne.

You are speaking of "white" versions. Yes, they are available in Japan and through some importers in europe/GB.



A white version is designed for professional racers and typically comes with race bodywork in white (thus the name "white version") They are typically sold to satellite and dealer teams, though a few do make it to club racers. All you need to do is safety wire them, tune the suspension and you're off. Some "white" versions also include kit parts, hotter cams, etc.... There really isn't a hard and fast rule for what is included and I suspect that serious satellite teams get different levels of these bikes, depending on team size and past success.



Unfortunately they are not usually available in America, though I imagine people like Graves, Erion et al can get them from their North American distributors on a special needs basis. -Sean

Default Re: Killer dinette set

I am on my second vw diesel the first an 86 golf is still running and has 325000 k on it. 225000 I personally drove. Costs? one clutch and four glow plugs and two sets of struts two sets of brake pads.I have a 1993 tdi with 75000 bought with 20000k. Have not had to fix yet. Oil changes are no more costly than a gas powered car!!! They take a filter and one liter of oil. If any one is being charged $100.00 you are being robbed.

Don't forgot the rubber band final drive, fuel in frame, perimeter brake and the cooling fan that never shuts off unless it's less than 40F.

IÂ’m too smart for that whole Ducati thing.



Yeah, then why were you drooling over the wallpapers, for 20 minutes?



Okay, IÂ’m screw. They finally got me. I want oneÂ…

ArenÂ’t they too expensive? I want oneÂ…

Really uncomfortable? I want oneÂ…

Hard do maintain? Want oneÂ…

Temperamental? YepÂ…

Parts? DonÂ’t careÂ…

Labor? NOWÂ…

DoesnÂ’t bother you a bit, not having near the ability to ride it? HmmmmmÂ…Nope!



Ha, Ha! I'm a sucker! IÂ’m eating my words! IÂ’m eating myÂ…%$@#$$#Â…Damn!

I noticed that myself. I'm by no means small and the 999 didn't feel too bad, Obviously sitting on one for a few minutes and riding one in your gear are two different things but compared to a GSXR it felt downright roomy



The 900 SS of a few years ago felt more comfortable than the 1000 version as well. The pegs seemed a lot higher to the point I couldn't get my size 12 Sidis on them

Big warning on the multibike ownership thing. Once you get started, it's very hard to stop.

I know you're not serious about any Duc, but sit on a Multistrada - ergos don't get any more comfortable.
