No, I'm not seeing a downside either. If you get tired of tripping over the Duc. I'll let him keep it at my house.

So is the MV the S that Yossef tested awhile back? I'll have to re-read the artical and see what you got. Sounds like the mix I want, IE Touring bike for daily driver and nekkid play bike for nice days.

If I could just get my kids to realize that beans on toast every day is a balanced diet, and there's places besides Nordies and the Bon to buy the cute new outfits they need every other day I'd be set.

Default Re: Storage

I gave my 6 year old a good pep talk yesterday about getting into the Air Force Academy because I just spent his college fund on motorcycles.



It is the bike that Yosef tested. The Mag and Carbon Oro model is 28 grand or so. I'll leave that one to the Jay Leno's of the world.



I haven't been able to ride it all weekend because I bought it Friday morning and then picked up my son. I might have to ditch work tomorrow afternoon and go "golfing."



It is an incredibly beautiful machine.l I keep thinking about reasons to wander out to the garage!

I'll bet your son will understand about the college fund, What guy would rather go to school than go riding?

it I don't even call it a garage anymore it's my office. I've got a fridge and a comfy chair, all I need is microwave and I could stay out there most of the time. (When you're praying for a house full of women, you need to specify that they're not related to you)

I put a set of gen-mars on the Trophy to go with my fitted seat and the weather has broke 70 for the last few days, now it's even harder to stay off it.

So do you go start it up and listen to it, then breathe in the new motorcycle hot engine smell?

Default Smell

The cool thing was when I rode it home some of the hot engine smell was on me! I was in my house and could still smell it. I haven't run it since I brought it home because I want to save the hot engine smell. My son goes back to school tomorrow so I'll be terrorizing the local mountains.



I already know about the house full of women. I have three sisters and no brothers. We had a swimming pool and when they brought all their girlfriends over...........let's just say I was the envy of all my buddies.

Default Re: I think we agree

Yes, we do agree. You are right to say that I do care about resale values in the sense that I can buy a used bike at a low price.



However, the fact resale values are not as high as Harleys or Ducatis is not an indicator that Japanese bikes are a poor value. Honda, for example, sells plenty of new bikes to those that want their latest, greatest bikes. I'm just not one of those people (most of the time). And for those of us who can live happily with a 2-year old bike, it's a great value.



And the 919 that I referenced was a pretty rare case. Most go for more than that.

Default Re: No Oro here

Not many of us do. But since you do seem to have a few bikes, and therefore must be fairly obsessed, I figured I'd ask.



Obviously the "regular" Brutale is gorgeous, too.

So... It's a sick day tomorrow eh?. Chinook pass should open pretty soon, That's my usual "sneak a day off" destination. Don't forget to scuff your tires in good before you go shreddin' it like a ripper ( I know you 40 y.o's can get forgetful)

Three sisters with girlfriends and a pool......sheesh....

Only 50k, you are being ripped off. My Nigerian friend is selling me a Honda Rebel with 250,000$ stuffed in the seat.

Default Re: Economics 101 for idiots It's different this time around dufus

Kpaul,

The article you are pointing out is typical of Keensian economics. It's idiocy.



If you would like to educate yourself on economics you may go here:



www.mises.com



the Austrian School of Economics is the only real school.



Considering that you likely don't even know what the Austrian school is, or even the names of the other 3, I doubt I should be wasting my time debating with you.



You simply don't have the vocabulary.

Default I knew....

.. that Kook couldn't shut the f### up and keep his political drivel off the freakin' motorcycle website. Just like last time. He chills out for a few days and then posts "whatever for dummies" and then has the audacity to accuse others of ad hominem attacks.



But that's not important.



You got a Brutale?? Getoutatown!



I'm still looking at a Speed Triple or a Falco. The last few parts I got for my Magna made me realize that if Honda is going to charge Italian prices for their parts then why bother with a cookiecutter from the East? You don't save any real money on them any more. Jap parts prices are ridiculous and the resale is miserable.
