Default Interesting Mag

The first thing these designs give away for better mileage is driver protection in a crash. The extra metal becomes a fatal straight jacket.

Average price of regular accross the U.S. In Kalifornia it will be next to $3.75...at least.. Remember W has 2 more years to screw more things up.. Scooters are cool. Does Kawasaki make them? When do we get to see the new ZX-6R? MCNews in England has more computer generated pictures of it? No office "Racer Boy" but Tell Kawasaki to keep making bikes without the racer boy graphics i.e solid colors are good, curves are good, sharp angles are bad, R6 back ends are bad.

Default Displacement ain't everything...

Just like motorcycles, a 400cc motor might make more power than a 500cc motor. Compare an EX500 to an 883 Sportster.



We weren't able to test an Xciting this year, but next year we will want to do a big scoot shootout to compare all the bikes in what is becoming a pretty big market segment.

Jeez, Kook, I've never said that deficits don't matter or that Saddam caused 9-11. You've never really understood anything anyone tries to tell you. You keep dubbing in all sorts of things no one ever says. You really need some sort of help.



At least that's what everyone at the 7-11 you work at says.

I was thinking about it and I remembered something. MO does have scooter video- it is here - http://www.motorcycle.com/mo/mccompa...rs/index.motml



Seems to me MO got in a little hot water with one of the manufacturers for crashing their scooter. Why MO did it was understandable to me. The only way to make scooters interesting is to abuse the heck out of them. Bring it on! Scooter demolition derby! Scooter figure 8 racing! Scooter jousting!



Just kidding again.
