Just another pretty face waiting to be snapped up by the new to riding wann be possers.



Our next door neighor's friend brought his brand new first bike (R1) over to show off and kept bragging about how fast it was and the handling and yadda yadda yadda.



Too bad he couldn't keep up with this 50 year old riding a Buell XB12S on a twisty road.

kpaul thinks it's funny. kpaul says the longride, seruzawa, and BuzBoy are the ruling Imperial Wizards of the Gray Pony Tail Brotherhood (GPTB). So weasel is kind of of play on the word Wizard as in Grand Wizard of the KKK.

Excellent Point
 
wolfpack you are wasting your time on this guy. I appreciate what you are pointing out. seruweasel thinks cruisers have better brakes than sportbikes.

Hey also thinks the cruiser market will continue to expand i.e. Gen X and Y buyers. I call this the "HD stay the course crowd". I think Harley has to make changes to get Gen X and Y buyers. The GPTB thinks Harley can continue to sell what they have.

Could be your best post ever. Can't wait till Buzz jumps on the 3 days/150 miles part. But until then, good stuff.

Re: Stat chart
 
The rather obvious difference is that the 13.5 % increase in the Snarley Davidson engine is a valuable real-world increase that can be taken advantage of, while the 18.5 % increase in the Yamaha is useless for all intents and purposes other than giving Ben Spies a run for his money next year

I think the ultimate question is "WWSD" ?
