Yeah. And when the mag spoke wheel is spinning you can't freaking see it anyhow.



Only when you are stationary would anyone notice the wheels. These wheels should be mainly excellent for Rubby bar hoppers and Burger Barn sportbike crowd.

The 200-pound unsprung weight is a bit of a disadvantage, though.

Apparently, I'm "out of touch" with Real Estate prices on the East and West coast. I paid ~$60k for my 2br 2ba 1600' on 2ac. home in '99 (Missouri).



Go 15 miles South of me, into AR - same place would run ~$250k.



A million-dollar home means something here!



(then again, I have a friend who bought her postage-stamp place in Boulder, CO in '99 too, and is sub-letting the basement to make ends meet to the tune of ~350k for 1000' of living space.......)

It's back to the '50s - that's known as "Road-Holding" weight.

An efficiency (500-800 square feet) in Manhattan can run you up to $600,000.



A One bedroom can easily go beyond 1 million.

and chris rock speaks the exact truth... every day i see a $500 1980s boats (read chevy caprice, cadillac, buick) on 23" rims. and its hilarious seeing these guys spend HOURS at the self help car washes scrubbing down their half rust half primer rides, then more hours polishing those $5000 rims

And why anyone would pay that much to live there....... oh well. Why anyone would want to live there at all is a better question.



I'll just stay here and enjoy flyover country. Oops, I mean it's so horrible here. Stay away. You'll get agoraphobia from all that exposure to open land.
