Default Re: Accent - I AM British

It might surprise you lot to hear that not all British speak with the same accent. Very few have a 'Queens English' accent and the Scots, Welsh, Northerners, and Ulstermen certainly don't.





So tha ort t' shute reet up as tha disint na wot tha's on abeet

lol

Anyone who wants to hear the accent first hand should pick me out at Laguna Seca next week...





Tally Ho for no old bean

Hey, don't do that!!! I'd LOVE a beemer (R1100RS... mmmmmm) but for the price of two brand new UJM's... that's not in the budget. For me at least.

I have a ZRX as well but had a "Zero Gravity" fairing extensition and it works really well compared to the stock one. Hell it even looks pretty good as well.

Yeah I know. I was just saying I didn't like the half faired version. Love the unfaired version.

When you go on the highway, do you take your car? These bikes are all about selling your car. And by going on the highway, I mean for about 8 hours at a time, or 16 hours a day when you really gotta be somewhere. Try passing semis for an entire day through 4 states. Besides, hustling a pig through corners is fun, it gives you a great excuse to really monkey off that thing.

Default Loud plaid suit with white leather?

Yeah baby! Hey, it may be ugly but it's COOL ugly, unlike fubu tops, tommy hilfiger, and certain sportbikes that look like they were painted by Cyndi Lauper's old makeup artist.

Thanks for the note; but my nearest BMW dealer is 80 miles away(Haps in Sarasota, FL), and when I did ride up to see them the salesman told me it did not compare well in handling to what I was already riding (a Honda VFR). So I went on with my search and comprimised on my zx1200r.



It is not an ideal sport-touring machine by any stretch of the imagination, but it is fairly comfortable and handles quite well. And with a pipe it now makes 170hp, and hauls my wide, middle aged a** quite well, thank you.



Somebody please make a modern sport-tourer, PLEASE!
