Default Re: And it was going so well till

Yes, still clinging to my 30s although the 40s are well in sight.



And I ride a sportbike.



I've never owned a Harley but I've ridden a few. Does that count? My brother owned a Sportster for a little while. Guilty by association?



There are actually a few of our plebes who are still in their 20s, gasp! By the way, Buz, when does the hazing start?



(By the way, Buz also owns a Ducati and Longride also owns a Hayabusa.)

Default Ladies and gentlemen...

...we have a winner.





In a sense, I don't totally disagree with KP (ack...I need to take a bath). I'd love to try a Buell with a new engine. And I think that Buell will probably forever be a niche bike but maybe that's not a bad place to be.



As you astutely pointed out, will the reward justify the investment? Damned if I know.

I mentioned that the 675 has a tall seat height, and I'm not tall. So now I'm "shorty" and "little man." And he's calling me out for basketball games.



See how I stalk him?



F*cktard.

Y'know, stalkees usually don't nag their stalkers this much.



"How tall are you?"



How big are your t!ts?

>I would sort of enjoy if they did something

>funky with the Blast.



I agree they should do something really funky with this bike that was a MO valuebike shootout loser already six years ago. Like change the concept, the components and the name.

Default Re: Excellent Point

Their 4 stroke outboards are huge, heavy, stodgy and SLOW. At least for the advertised power. When they first came out people loved them. The salvation from the EPA. Now that we have some real experience with them, you won't find that many decorating the transoms of larger, heavier or FASTER boats. It's back to the 2 stroke Mercs and Evercrudes if you want to get there AND back.



Their small motors, under 50 HP are still doing well.

Default Re: You guys remind me of a bad side to some Canadians

If you want to see some gringo bashing, come to Argentina man. I mean people are soo offended by whatever you guys do. BTW this is because of the historical exploitation of the country by the US. When I ask like how, exactly, has US exploited Argentina the details get suddenly very sketchy. But there you are.

I own a Harley and 5 Aermacchi -HD's(vintage MX and flat track) AND I have a ponytail. The ponytail's not gray but the beard is. Matter of fact ,I probably look like KPAUL's worst nightmars.

Most of my South-American friends are from Chilè or Brasìl.
