Yeah lets hope they do. I really like my dad's Deuce, it just doesn't compare to my Magna though, in roll ons or acceleration. I also can't wait to see what new bikes the Revolution is going to be in like they are saying. Get some good pics for us at the 100th in Milwaukee(however you spell that damned werd).

Hey I rode my ST4 to Tahoe and back. Of course I had to have wrist replacement surgery when I returned but it has side bags so it must be a touring bike.



It's currently at the Ducati Wallet-lightening center getting its 18000 mile service.

I do remember the Wanker engine in the Suzuki. The magazines liked it, but no one bought any. That picture of the Trumpet sure looks similar.

I think there's a market for a full touring bike that's not overly complicated



Jeeez, what's wrong with you? Too much buffetting from those Girling shocks on your Trump? Haven't you heard of the SV650?

My "portly" ass on an SV650 gives monkey-****in'-a-football a whole new dimension.

I might lighten up if I didn't have my pockets stuffed with zenier diodes everytime I ride.

well, that plus my single handed efforts to bring Foster's Special Bitter to TOTAL WORLD SALES DOMINATION!!!!!! ( it's been warm this summer)

I remember those, don't think I saw one on the road though.

A buddy and me tried to get an RE5 running once. Between water leaks, rotory port induction and oil fouled plugs all we could do was get it to pop and bang a few times.

I worked on a '75 Johnson snowmobile with a 2 stroke Wankel(off). I managed to get it running, but it had a nasty habit to start on fire. It wasn't really a problem though, we'd just throw snow on it and go riding 'til she lit up again. It was a blast, literally.

JMHO but it still looks better than a Honda Valkyrie. Now that's a pig.
