I don't think he rides a Harley. He knocks over a Harley.

He said, "Do some losers really suck to this BS?"

Do you have any idea what that means?

Jeasus I need to pay attention here, I was replying to a post on the first ****ing page, I didn't even notice the rest of this thread......





I started riding in '68. The biggest thing you saw then were the all new 74' Shovelheads. The hot rods were 55' Sporties and 650 Brit bikes, even BMW stopped at 750 with the R75. My dads 250 CZ ISDT bike that I learned on was a big bike but "I should be able to handle it" then he bought the 200 Tiger Cub which was still a pretty big bike to learn on, my buddy had a 250 single Ducati and this other guy had a S90 Super Cub or Super Hawk, Then Daves sister started dating this clubber with a chopped KHK and we figured he was the coolest guy we ever met and he must be a good rider for a bike that big, then my dad bought me the Super Rat and I was the envy of the group because it was a REAL RACE BIKE !!

I guess we must seem pretty lame having fun on 90's and 100's now it seems you can't have fun unless you have a 600 race rep

If you don't think many riders choose a bike at least partly because of how they look, that's inane. The point I was making is that the little Duc looks great for its price, and I think the old dude scoping out the bike in front of my chiro's office illustrated this nicely.

As for the dyno wish, we fell short there due to a whole bunch of busy around here. But know that we plan to have dyno runs done on every bike we're able to bring home.

Obviously I bought my Fat Boy for its historical racing pedigree. As everybody knows HD won the flat track regionals in Boise, Idaho, both ’53 and ’54. Who could foreget P.G. Worsthorne’s dramatic finish with a splash of pigeon droppings on his goggles? I just ask. This proves Fat Boy is the best bike ever.

Okay, did they have to add that horrible rear fender?

That is all.

I thought that the report was a bit misleading. That bike will easily reach triple digit speeds; many cruisers make less power and weigh 150 pounds more. Obviously it can't compare to a serious sportbike, but it is not a toy.

The ducati website says that they DO offer a centerstand for this bike. That makes it far more likely that I would buy a monster. My bike is my primary form of transportation, so everyday maintenance is a concern for me.

45mpg is also good.

Overall this bike has a great ratio of fun to dollars, and it is even practical to own. The only negative I see is the cost of service at ducati dealers.

I'd rather have a nice used 750 with carbon fiber Termi's.
