Default You can't ride a press release

I was at the dealer yesterday hoping to check out something new. I test rode a Hypermotard.

However, the dealer has no 1098s and no Hypers. 1098s are sold out for the rest of the year and I might be able to get into a Hyper by October. Oi!

Well, I guess that Ducati has become as evil as Harley.... limiting production to force high prices and steal dollars form the poor. At least I'm expecting to see all those people who attacked HD for doing the exact same thing chime in.

...has a red white and blue 07 VFR sitting on the showroom floor gathering dust right now, I believe. I'll bet he could get a great deal on it and only pay what he'd pay for a SprintST.
