Those are very wise words. All of us here are scared of literbikes, and we have about 50 years of riding experience between the three of us.

Wait, are the Elephants and Crocodiles 1000ccs? Otherwise I'm not interested.

Default Re: Three for Five: Budget Bombers

excerpts from hyosung's 650s website:



VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) DIGITAL SPEEDOMETER employed only in deluxe automobile is applied for the first time in the world, securing grace and dignity of the big displacement bike.



...still better...


Employ SUSPENSION that is excellent for strength possible for 240 Km high speed running and road surface following.


be it only my opinion, but these new hyosung bikes should be for to much envious with take joyful of pleasurement.

"Acid? I've been using maintenance-free batteries for over ten years, but before that I didn't use acid. Just distilled water. Was I doing something wrong, moto-experts?"



Koward moderated me to "Incorrect" for that.

Yeah, that was an incredibly "Intelligent" comment.



MO, will you PLEASE ditch the Moderate feature? All it does is allow a-holes to effectively censor posts because of the "1" default.

Yes, the DR can take shortcuts through the woods/desert.... attaining twice the fun!

Default Re: Three for Five: Budget Bombers

I just sold my Suzuki Savage after i rode it for 19,000 miles in 18 months. It was reliable, easy to maintain and I just loved that trouble free final drive belt!

I grew to dislike the cruiser riding position with feet forwards and sitting on my tailbone. I'd still have it if it had a "proper" standard riding position! The crankshaft did fine.
