Ridiculous plots, that lead up to the Money Shots -

If it had a motor it would be cool.

Of course you could always buy the power pak upgrade to bring it all the way up to the bewildering heights of 65 rwhp. Rolling burn outs are a wheeze as long as you have a friend with a bucket of oil at hand.

Jeez dude, can't you think of anything else to say? I actually agree with you, but damn you're a one-topic pony.

I dunno, that V twin has more than enough power for me, remember I rode an '05 City-X, and it was more than fast enough, much to the chagrin of Ducati & Gixxer riders.

One thing I notoced though, the motor seems to be kida high in the frame, like when you put a six inch over on a stock hog, and didn't rake it. Is it just me, or does the crankshaft center see higher than the axles?

Don't mind Cruiz - he's still tired from burnin' all those laps at Valencia. It's not easy keeping that pesky Valentino off your back.

He doesn't realize that we lame Americans don't have the Euro-skilz necessary to use every horsie in a street-legal Superbike.

I think that's an optical illusion, Matt. A combination of the bike sitting on its sidestand and the angle of the camera shooting at the height of the stage.

Although a cruiser wouldn't be the first bike I'd buy, the Blackline is classy and tasteful and cool enough for my garage. It's an aspirational bike that doesn't yet meet my bank account on even terms.

Your post reminds me of a guy who lives in my neighborhood who has a 2009 1198S. It's the "Corse" edition; a truly stunning bike. Every now and then, usually on a Saturday afternoon, I see him riding it. No helmet, penny loafers, jeans and Izod. Usually he takes it about 5 miles east to I-95, then turns around and comes back. As far as I can tell after watching him all these times, he's never had it over 45.

And people think my white cotton panty collection is weird.

What about the man with two watches and a sneer that says "I don't give a F-Bomb what F-Bomb'n time it is."?

And he's still got that gay-ass picture as his icon. Geez.
