The MV Augusta is a conglomeration of an R1, CBR1K and GSXR1000 and, therefore, not worthy. If the Japanese designed tailpipes like that, they would be laughed at. Agree with them on the Duc 999, although it is getting a bit long in the tooth. Because the R1 was not even in the running, leads me to beleive this is a rigged Euro scam.

"Now you want to compare SAT scores too..."



1340, pre-norming. 99th percentile verbal, somewhere around 70th math (never did like math), and I think there was another section (analytic?) where I did 97th percentile. How'd I do?



"Do you have a Mensa card? I do..."



Oh, please. Mensa is for tools.

The selection of the Ducati 999 automatically invalidates this survey.



Since Terblanche took over design at Ducati, the styling mantle has been taken over by Yamaha.

Well, the Sport Classics, the Hypermotard and the Hailwood replica were all designed by Terblanche.



He was a little drunk during the 999 and the ST restyle.

It's the math that wouldn't.



Feh. I went to inner-city schools that literally taught me nothing. The analytic (?) was my native intelligence, the verbal was self-taught from voracious reading. Never had the interest in math to teach myself that.



So, what were your scores?
