Default Oh you little minds coffee aint the same as gasoline

I remember when longride made the stupid coffee comparison. The big difference is that gasoline is the lifeblood of our economy. Every good and service in this economy is affected by price increase unlike your latte.

Wow JB, your typing syntax and sentence structure (or rather, lack of it) is remarkably similar to KPaul's. That's very interesting. Please tell me more.

I'm pretty sure now that it is him. Today was slip #2. I'm not feeding the trolls anymore.

Remember, you're dealing with a guy who thinks a 10% drop in real estate values after a 20% gain spells disaster.



Now, me, I'm waiting for people to wake up and get pissed off about the fact that this ethanol snake oil is spiking corn prices. Talk about an economic lifeblood. Our economically-illiterate citizenry thinks corn springs free from the dirt. Sure, use it for ethanol! We'll just grow more! Yippee!

How dare you use analytical thought! Just sit back and drink the Kool Aid.

I've been riding an 800 cc Duc for years, I guess that means I'm "up to speed".

Default One Theory

The "step backwards" to 800 cc's seems to have a couple of benefits that I've read in the press: The 1000 cc sizes appear to be too much for many (if not most) riders to handle effectively. If you've read about the new Suzuki, they've actually installed a button to allow the rider to step through three power levels, A for full power, B for midrange, and C for "low" power. Apparently the idea is to throttle down exiting corners and in other situtations when too much power is a bad thing. The second reason I've seen is that the 800 strikes an excellent balance between the flickability of the 600 and the power of the 1000. Sort of a "best of both worlds" theory. I have to think that as tire and suspension technology improve, the usability of power will continue to rise. I remember when 100hp was considered insane...now it's average.

Give up your two 5 buck Starbucks latte's every day and the gas will seem like a bargain. Hell, you get a whole gallon for only 4 bucks. Cheap.
