It's about time you guys posted something worth reading. Seriously, I was considering not renewing my subscription. Now I think I will. That way I can enjoy the writings of like-minded individuals like Kpaul.

Five months? How'd you get through the Red Tape so quickly?

I always thought Kate Jackson was very hot, especially her voice. The Charlie's Angels anology is probably very apt. I wouldn't hesitate to ride the other two every chance I got, but would probably choose to settle down with Kate, er, the BMW for a long term relationship.

Man, that maintenance is brutal. I'd be willing to bet the you could come in cheaper on the BMW if you did it yourself. There doesn't seem to be that much in the way of accomplishing it, except for the whole brake maintenance thing.



Good story. Personally, I'm wondering where the M109 fits in. Maybe next time.

Excellent work you too Buz.. Seriously from the your excellent ABS description . sounds like this system only pulsates the rear brake... Hmm my first crash on a bike was a front brake lockup on wet pavement. Locking up the rear doesn't seem to be as big of deal according to my MSF instructor just keep it locked and skid to stop... Please correct me if I am wrong about this assumption. By the way it's snowing like crap here took me 3 hours to get home cause folks are abandoning their cars on I-90 and 405.. Folks just spin their wheels with bad tires. Colorado folks would laugh at these left coasters and drive around them.. 'That's what I did.. Good thing I got the new all seasons on all four wheels.



Skidless in Seattle

kpaul..



P.S. Nice pictures but you might want to use the air brush on Buz's just kidding. Buz you are a good looking guy and my wife has a sister getting out of Purdy in a few weeks. She is a real firecracker..

Just looked back over the other review of the non-euro naked's and am reminded that ya'll should have hit the non-long version of the Buell Lightning...... It has won every other comparo, and that is the leading reason that I purchased one......



Just had to beat the drum.... Sorry, folks!



Great article, and with hope after the Drummer, K&N, Race ECU, and Dobeck EJK, I'll be in the HP game with the others....



Be safe.



Rob

Sweet test, hopefully you can do part two including the Speed Triple, Superduke, and a Monster or two.



Nicely done.

Great job guys. One question though, doew the BMW have a 4.6 or a 5.6 gallon tank? BTW saw the new R1200R the other day and now it is my most desired motorcycle.
