Is Ducati trying to become the new Harley? (What with the accessorizing and all). I just added all those farkles, and they come out to $8,986.

So Honda doesn't sell accesories for their bikes? Maybe you need to get out more.

It's kind of surprising that Ducati would want this bike to look so much like a Speed Triple.

LR, maybe Honda does sell lots of expensive accessories for their VTX's or GoldWings. I wouldn't know, don't own one of those. But they're not available for my XX (at least not here in the U.S.). Which is fine with me, I don't need 'em.

Anyway, it's not like I don't have any criticisms for Honda motorcycles, even if I do own one. I still can't understand why they don't have FI on the Shadow, for example, and their excuse that it would increase the price of the bike too much doesn't fly.

No centerstand what BS Sat on one today, again. Givi makes some good stuff for this. Still nothing from Hepco and Becker. Fortunately I signed for my KLX 250 SF today so I'm satiated for a little while. The green body panels from the S will bolt on directly. Oh happy day.

Hmm 1100 S with a fenda extenda
