Gen X is 1963-1978. Did you just squeak in under the wire?

Correction. "Generation X" is the pop-culture equivalent of Howe and Strauss's "13th Gen". They're the authorities, and they put it at 1961-1981.



You must be at the line - you've got a lot of Boomer in you.

Re: Cool Looking
 
Totally know what you mean. All Ducatis I've ridden take 1/2 hour to truly warm up. Isn't that incredible? It's true though. After 30 minutes it's like it becomes a completely different motorcycle, and it can really roar. This is especially true for Ducatis outfitted with aftermarket exhausts.



So much for air-cooling not being efficient. Maybe it keeps the bike too cool?



You know, when I bought my first Ducati, I actually was attracted to air cooling. I did not see it as a disadvantage at all. I perceived it to be simpler, easier to work on, and more reliable. I'd never had a water cooled bike. Of course, now that I've gone through quite a few water cooled bikes, my paraoia about water cooling has evaporated, and I now love both types. But I think the buyer of an air-cooled bike is not going to be worried about the performance restrictions which might accompany it. They will be more into the retro appearance, clean lines, simplicity, and perceived reliability.

Re: Nothing better on the track
 
There is got to be something to what gbrummett says when you see Bayliss beat the inline4s on the Ducati.



But there's a corollary to that. Remember Valencia? Bayliss and the v4, heck bayliss and anything is pretty bad ass. the inline-4 is dead.



v4 victory, ever see that movie with joey dunlop?

Duc me runnin' ! that's a beautiful bike!



The only thing that would be better is if there was a nice link on the bottom of each of MO's review pages with a compressed file with all the big wallpaper pics in it - ready to download in one shot.



That way, I could download that one file instead of doing the right click/save as shuffle all day. Know what I mean vern?

Buell's ad dept. is apparently shooting for the stars:

This is far more inline with every XB9 dyno I've seen. I can believe the S2R pulls 95 ponies though.
