Sure, Corvettes have awesome power. But for sheer exotica, it's hard to beat a Ferrari.

No problem with that reasoning MOKE. You are a price/performance guy, and if you only have a certain amount of bucks to spend, that isn't a bad way to go. Nobody can beat the Japanese at getting the most performance for your dollar, that's for sure.

Except a manufacturer that is closing and selling bikes at 1/2 price! (Not knocking it, BTW; if I hadn't just bought a house I'd be buying a Bool too!)

Can't knock the price I got that bike for at all. I actually never saw one in person until the day I bought it. i was going to buy the XB12ss until I saw, and sat on, the 1125CR. Once I did, it screamed at me: "This is the one!" Too bad I can't ride the thing for a while.

The offer for a Florida break-in is still open! Are you going to bring it to Bike Week next March?

I don't think Daytona is in the works for 2010. I just landed a new job for gobs more cash and won't be getting any days off for 6 months. Biketoberfest maybe, but Daytona can't happen this year. I'd love to come down to collect that helmet you owe me and race MOKE to the nearest bar.

Urk, you have a "Long" memory...that bet was 2+ years ago! The Shoei is in the garage when you're ready for it.

Kinda reminds me of the Druken 50cc races we have sometimes. You and a partner team up and when one rider is riding the other rider must chug two beers then take over. It ends when theirs only one team left. Good fun.

It wasn't that long ago. It was about Obama introducing anti-gun legislation that you claimed he didn't have time for. I was supposed to collect it last Daytona, but you chickened out on me!
