Default Re: sv1000

The SV1000 is a reality acording to the rumor mill and the SV650 is supposed to get some refinement.

KPaul,



I should have probably said this earlier, but here goes: I was not trying to insinuate that Herr Burns was plagarizing anyone's content. That would have been stoopid, as there's just no way anyone can back up a statement like that.



I do really like MO, and I want to see them do well. I enjoy the content they do provide - I'm addicted to it and can't get enough! That's why I was clamoring for more.

Default Re: Now that's what I call journalism!

It seems the pittance we were called to pay for the content comes up once and a while. I have never seen the numbers, JB; how many paid subscribers (members) are there?



My guess is all of the subscription money woudn't pay y'alls gas bill.



Which, I suppose, will engender another "You guys are in the Manufacturers pocket" rant. I mean, how else can you pay your expenses?



Oh, wait... That animated Buell ad. I forgot.



One other thing. How much fun did *you* have at the SchantzSchool?

Default Re: What about the 919?

Just curious...what flaws did you hear of regarding the 919? I have yet to hear any complaints about the bike, and it's also been around Europe for a while now. It's only a new model to the US market.



Inquiring minds want to know!

Default I am tired of bike reviews...

All of these complaints about "where's my such and such review," are silly. There are not very many people out there who actually buy a new bike more often than every 4 years. The only reason to read endless bike comparisons is to soothe the ego of the squid. Personally, I like reading product reviews and modification stories because they are things I could apply to my riding. I recently neglected to renew my Motorcyclist subscription because they have been doing nothing but play up to the newstand squid. If MO goes that route, I will do the same to their magazine. I could at least use the extra money to pay off the guys at Motorcycle Consumer News.



I have to say that I am very excited about the new CBRXX. The '97 is getting a little ragged looking. Maybe the '04 model will be on order. I guess I'll just have to wait until the review comes out in Motorcyclist

I hear that it's really dangerous bike to have...it's so boring, you fall asleep while riding.

Default AMA is taking who's money?

Who's money is the AMA taking? You and Burns aren't members right? They take MY money and I like their stance on helmets just fine. Nobody is 100% in agreement on ALL issues of any organization. The "I don't like the helmet stance" for not being a member is pure horseshyt. They also fight to keep cities from banning you from riding on certain streets, as the did here in Chicago when it was proposed to shut down LSD to bikes. They also fight for off road land to ride on and I can go on and on. You have NO RIGHT to ***** about them when you don't pay them a dime. Just keep your head in your keester and act like it all will work itself out. Oh, by the way having "guts" is fighting FOR something rather than complaining ABOUT something. All Burns did is whine about the AMA. Lots of "guts" THAT took. What do YOU do for motorcycling and what orginizations are YOU a member of? I bet nothing and none are the answers to those questions, which is worse than ANYTHING the AMA stands for.

Forget that. I want the enduro-ized SV650 they race in european rallys. Or a flat-track inspired SV750.
