Default Martin gave me some sheepherding pointers

The Aerostich's tough fabric keeps those ewe's sharp hooves from scratching my thighs. The gloves have velcro on the palms for a secure grip.

Default You'll go a Waltzing Matilda

Keep it up and you're gonna end up being made an honorary Aussie. By the way, does anyone know how many cans of Fosters it takes, for sheep sex to seem like a good idea?

The Halloween color scheme only works one day per year and those cans hanging out are sooooo 20th century. The fairing resembles an inverted shovel and looks slapped on and out of place. Why would anyone buy this bike over a (discounted) Buell or FZ1? Oh well, I'm obviously not the market for this bike....

Hmmm.... Z1000 for 8.5k, or an MZ1000 for what, 10k? I hope they do well (the more manufacturers the better), but this prolly isn't the way to do it.

I really would like a Norton or a Laverda but I would like the bike to also look like either one of those. This thing looks as bad as the KTM. Any one out there realize that us 50+ riders have some spare cash but different taste? Some large manufacturer needs to hire Ken Dreer for a day or 20.

No offense intended, but is anything on the Z1000 original? It looks like a morph between the S2R and the Tuono. At least this bike has some original character, albeit ugly, in my opinion. I think it needs the fake red plastic clutch cover like the Z1000 to really sort it out!

Default I really like orange!

Gotta disagree with ya. From the owner of two very bright yellow vehicles, orange is way cool.



Remember all those cool Gremlins, Vegas, and Pintos in the 70's. Hmmmm, come to think of it, I do remember all those Gremlins, Vegas, and Pintos, and there was nothing cool about them. OK, you may be right.



The General Lee was orange though, and it was definitely cool.

At least it ain't another rococo custom.

Yes, some large American manufacturers come to mind



This is obviously made for the younger folks, say 30+, with some spare cash, and the need to differentiate themselves from the rest of their peers. Which may be the raison'D'etre of Ducati and quite possibly the reason I keep oogling the Monster.



Of course, this message might be answered by somebody saying I am wrong; 30+ ain't young and this bike is for the early 20' crowd and an URGE to stand out. And looking at the color combo they might be right.
