Now now. I have an excellent collection of boat anchors. The '84 Magna is next to go though. Finally got in the tranny bearing I needed. Now it's button that Magna up and sell it to some unsuspecting soul who actually believes that bullshyt about Honda "superior quality" and "fit and finish".



Don't you need something to fill the hole left by your MV Agusta?

Maybe they should have named it Magma for how often it melts down.



I still want to ride a Hypermotard before I decide to fill any holes.

My new '06 Speed Triple had the Arrow ti exhaust dealer installed and is set up exactly as the special edition. I decided against the belly pan--like the naked headers to show. Also, I'm not a fan of the rear hugger, but went with the CF chainguard instead--no rear axle cover.



BTW, with the recent special pricing on Speed Triples (not sure when it ends/ended) you get $600 in accessories, meaning you could build a special edition as you wanted with some choice parts. I was able to install the flyscreen, seat cowl, CF heel guards, and radiator covers without spending a dime.



The special edition is a fair deal as the Arrow exhaust and injection map isn't exactly cheap.

Why? I've had more bikes that all of them. So they haven't been $65,000 ducs but that's just a small detail.

Get a Bimota from Rocket down in SD and I'll tell people "a buddy of mine in SD just got a new Tesi"

Buzz, stop with the Hypermotard crap. You got a bright yellow duc and a harley. You don't need any more attention from both sides of the fence.



Young chick, check

Cougars, check

Wow! Looks like da bomb to me. Hell, the Arrow pipe is worth the price of admission.

C'mon JB, EBay. And don't tell me there's not a salvage yard with a wrecked Speed Triple in SoCal somewhere.
