And the windscreen seems to work well with ballcaps worn backwards, judging from the ones I see toodling around here.

Like I said, I'd put him on a 1050 Tiger. A white one. Ohhhh yessss!

Zachery - Heck with the VFR! Get a Sprint ST! It's the same bike, only a LOT better!
Good point I always forget about Triumph. Busa has good ergos for big guys but I have to agree with longride it's a big step from a well behaved cruiser. But so is a liter bike right

The previous model Tuono can be had on the cheap. It's got great ergos, great motor and longride will approve!

Trust me, I've ridden both versions and they rock!

2 goals is a big score? Who knew?

The Hayabusa is the best bike I have ever ridden or owned. That is my opinion on that. That said, it will also get your license or life pulled so fast it will make your head spin. Ergos are good and the motor is outstanding. Good choice for and experienced, mature rider.

Tuono? That bike rocks! I could own one of those! It's like riding a big dirt bike. Way cool.

You obviously don't know anything about football. Zero goals can be a big score. Obviously.

Last Sunday I watched Nascar on telly first time in my life. I was really amazed to see the pitstops. The guys were jumping around like monkeys.

I've tried to learn but after an hour of watching people running back and forth and around and around without scoring my eyes glaze over and my finger twitches the remote to MXC.

That's why Footie is such an exciting game, it IS difficult to score, it takes a great deal of skill to move the ball down the pitch and set up for a goal. A game that winds up with a 1-0 score can have you on the edge of your seat for the whole 90 minutes..

One of those like-it-or-you-don't deals I guess, I enjoy Soccer and American Football though I think Soccer is way more exciting, for a real snoozer try a Baseball game, great fun to play but boring as hell to watch, IMO

I have no idea what they're doing, but Australian Rules is something to watch!

It looks like rugby and soccer, except the inventors thought those two were too slow and dainty.

Like I said, I'm befuddled while watching it, but it is entertaining!

Sorry - this has absolutely nothing to do with picking out a sportbike. I most humbly apologize.
