The website should also tell people to take a training course. The last thing I want to see is motorcycle accidents going up because a bunch of morons (not MOrons) are hopping on a 1000+cc bike and getting themselves hurt. That will start a whole new round of "motorcycles are too dangerous" in the press.

I think that may have been me searching for a new bike. I found one so the search #s should drop back down to normal.

I got a Multistrada. It was a tough one though, Tuono, Speed Triple every time I turned around I developed A.D.D. then terrets.

I am very happy so far (1k miles) bought it with 1500 miles and hard bags. Poor sucker done went and hurt himself at work and could not ride no mo.

Can the good NADAguides' folk also confirm a surplus of water in New Orleans....sheesh Arnie should slap a stiffer tax on Jack Daniel's finest cause these guys clearly have consumed too much.

Dang, gas is sure getting expensive. Well, let's see. Maybe I should get one of those motorcycles. Here, I'll check prices with NADA. Cool, a Harley XL1200C for only $9495. I'll go down and pick one up now, plus spend several hundred bucks more for some cool clothes and a helmet. Guess I'd better call the insurance man, too. Oh boy, I'm gonna be saving some serious money now with my economical new motorcycle. I wonder how hard they are to ride.

Bah. I got better gas mileage from my 1994 Mitsubishi Mirage than I do from my 05 GSXR... The car got about the same as my 2001 Bandit 600 did. I like the bike a whole lot more, but it's not anywhere near as cheap to run.

Way to go Chango. Anyone who drives a gas guzzler should be sent to Iraq for a couple of months guard duty in swimming pants to learn what a term "national interest" means.

Not everyone drives a Mirage, etc. Any bike short of a turbine engine beats my truck out when it comes to the pump.

Considering that GSXR will outrun just about anything on the road, and the Mirage couldn't muster enough acceleration, or speed, to get out of its own way, I'd say your comparison stinks!
