I do find their copying of Harley rather distasteful only because they're trying to emulate a heritage they don't have. IMO they have their own history, why not build a replica Z1

Because that is a copy of a CB750 as are all inlines. By your logic shouldn't we find anyone building an inline 4 distasteful?

But then I can't be too found of my previous Hondas either, my CX500 was a copy of a Moto Guzzi and my Gold Wing a copy of a Porsche. Not sure who made the first single, but my XL350 would have surely been a distasteful clone of it.

I've never owned an Italian bike so I can't speak from experiance

I've owned two Ducatis and they were my favorites ever. With inflation becoming so ridiculous (real inflation, not BS gubament numbers) I can't bring myself to overpay for service any longer. Especially when that little Warrior requires little more than oil, gas, and tires.

I have never heard cruiser guy saying “Guys guys what do you think you are doing? You don’t need more power or torque”.

I don’t get this Hayabusa comparison you are going on about either. I am a cruiser guy and talking about Hayabusa is like talking about astrology. Like as relevant. But then, put that engine on a cruiser and we’ll be talking.

>Tell me, is this your turf, do you own the place??

Take it easy Wallace. Longride is "super moderator" which means he is like a Wall-Mart greeter. Trying to make customers feel comfortable. OK so he sucks at it appallingly, but hey the man is trying his best.

>racist and derogatory rhetoric like "Jap bike"

Is "jap" racist and derogatory? I thought "yellow **** troatcutting scumbags **** motherfuggers *****s" would be racist and derogatory. Did I mention ass-bandits?

I'm not here to make you happy. That was your momma's job. Sometimes in life you don't get what you want, you get what you deserve.

What is so astonishing, is that these guys act so suprised when the crap they sling hits em right back in the face. Then they cry about how they are so mistreated by the mean old moderators here. If it goes around it usually comes around.

You should know by now that certain things are self-evident divine truths: Cruiser riders are posers, everyone should ride race replicas and if they can't it's because they aren't physically fit, everyone only cares about having more power, it's impossible to have fun with less than 100hp, when HD or Buell issue a recall it's because the bikes are crap, when the Japanese or Germans issue a recall it's because they care about the customers, serious issues on Japanese or German bikes don't even have to be acknowledged and anyone who points them out is a hater, HD is the only evil greedy bike corporation in history.

The real funny thing is that after all these years people show up and reveal the same-o same-o as if it's a recent revelation and they just thought of it.

But still, they are all entitled to their opinions and you just pick on them because you are a meanie. You need a dose of fairy dust so you can have a perpetual smile.
