Gabe, with your delicate features I don't see how you could punch a man-size hole in the air.

Had one of there Yamaha 660cc single powered streetbikes for awhile, it was actually surprisingly fun, though not a performance bike, was fairly reliable for the 10K miles I put on it. And if it wasn't for the Orange I'd actually consider this too, I enjoy riding bikes that most don't recognize, makes you stand out a bit from the crowds of chrome and too much plastic.

Default it's a safety thing. :)

I have a Yellow bike. The best thing about it is that can be seen easily. In the sea of black, navy, silver, and seal SUVs, yellow and orange really stand out. Also you can then dress in black or other dark colors. Nothing more comical to me is see a guy on a black Harley with a lime green vest...

I didn't clarify why I mentioned all those crappy little cars. I mentioned them because they all came in orange and that alone might ruin the color forever in many people's minds.

If that's the choice, then MZ1000. Definitely. The Z1000 is one of the ugliest bikes out there.

I just bought a leftover '03 Z1000 (black and red) for about two-grand under MSRP. They obviously aren't selling too well probably because its style is so polarizing and the people that love it have already bought one. As long as MZ doesn't expect the sales volume that Kawasaki enjoys, I think they'll be able to sell some because there will always be people that want something different and want a bike that few others have.

It's not the fastest bike for the money, but it looks wicked good in orange, don't you think?</p>


Yes. Well done, Gabezilla.</p>

WHAT'S THE ANSWER TO THE SHEEP QUESTION? THEY WILL DRINK FOSTERS BUT IT'S A LITTLE EMBARRASSING TO HAVE YOUR DATE DRINKING FROM A DISH AT THE BAR.

Good point on the mufflers, though any bright orange bike (or bright yellow) deserves loud cans.



Perhpas in subsequent videos, you could be shown riding in a straight line down Main Street USA or bucolic fields, just to keep the hearts of your readers racing...
