Well, then I guess Harley-Davidsons must be awesome bikes, too.

Default Excellent Post

A post I finally agree with you on



But it doesn't really make your case about Honda. Honda is in a really competitive market unlike Microsoft. Honda is just playing it safe now...i.e. they are using the Harvard MBA (GE) play book which ran Apple into the ground.. I agree like HD Honda needs to innovate more. Right now they are staying up with the competition i.e. reacting... I see more ideas from the other 3 Japanese companies.

That isn't derogatory... That is just the facts longride, Buz and zawa all believe that HD Buell would be foolish to change engines i.e. stay the course.

Yep. The lack of attention was killing him.



Oops. There I go, stalking again.



Guess I'll hop on my egg-crated Bandit and hang out with all of the other categories of people and things that kpaul loudly disdains. All 5 billion of them.

And no, I didn't moderate that myself! Moderating one's own posts is hella lame.

Their 4-stroke outboards are good though.
