...yes, in the immortal words of Sgt. Sefton from Stalag 17: "He's a Nazi, Price is. For all I know his name is Preissinger or Preishoffer. Oh, sure, he lived in Cleveland. But when the war broke out, he came back to the Fatherland like a good little Bundist. He spoke our lingo, so they sent him to spy school and fixed him up with phony dog tags."

And let's not forget, Marko the Mailman: "Remember, just because the krauts are dumb doesn't mean that they're stupid."

HEY ! HEY MISTER! YOU NO PAR-LAY DE ONGLAISE???? ..sheeyt!

I like Beemers myself, in the late 80's my dad had an R100RT and I had a K100RS, we used to go beemer riding quite a bit. It's a nice memory,

Of the new ones I like the K1200GT, If I had an extra $22k laying around I'd probably get one. One of my riding buds is a BMW salesman and just bought a K1200R which is pretty much raw sex on wheels if you ask me, totally cool bike. I plan on adding an R80RT or R100RT to the fleet at some point for a winter bike. I don't care for the oilheads too much but I wouldn't turn an older one down. One of the beauties of the airheads is the same as my Dyna and Bandit, you don't need an electronics degree to maintain them.

....jonesing for a Tiger the R1100RS would be in the running. My buddy with 6 BMWs has one and I like it better then the R1150s. The R1200 prices are ridiculous. Airhead prices are rising too so better find yers now. The R80s especially. Last I checked the prices they sell for more than the R100s.

Yeah, they're not totally unreasonable yet, probably what I'll do is Craigslist the Bandit this spring an see what's out there in Airhead land. Trouble is every time I ride the Bandit I fall in love all over again.

'Course there's the ol' Range Rover driveway ornement sitting there...........

Nah, it was my dad's, I couldn't sell it......Guess the Bandit will be on the block (maybe)

I'll be impressed with their Beemer "Roundel" when I see a bunch of Krauts walking around with it tattooed on their arms, shoulders, chests, foreheads, whatever. Or across Helga's nipples. If I'm not mistaken, the HD logo is either #1 or #2 most recognizable anywhere in the world.
