They might do better with a Manx style cafe bike.

Do people in America really buy Chinese motorcycles? For God's sake, why?

The price delta between the CycleWerks bikes and a real bike just isn't enough to justify buying one. So you bought a bike for under $4K? How great is that when you can't get parts, find someone to fix it, etc.? Not very. Especially when there's everything from a Suzuki TU250X to a Honda CBR250R for a few bucks more. (BTW: how about including the TU in that upcoming 250 comparo you mentioned?)

And couldn't those guys come up with anything better than sticking "tha" at the front of their bike names? tha LameO.

They have a new one. You can't possibly fit a girl on the back.

It's called The Kenneth.

Wrong. It's called "tha Kenneth," and there's only room on the back for you!
