So you absolutely need more torque?... I never had a use for more... If I can kick every car (including Vettes) on the street off the line I don't need it. Just dragged a BMW twin he stayed with me for 10 yards then my Ninja showed him who was king.....600 SS are the best bikes for price/performance... The safest too. Great shocks, brakes and tires.

"it's cool having that top-weighted powerband so all the horsepower is on tap past 7,000 rpm."

Default KPaul Bingo!

Ok, it's Sunday. So far we have a Ninja 600 reference (AKA: The Bestest Bike In All Of Seattle!!!)



So we need 4 more reference to his standard topics for a KPaul Bingo.



Available catagories are:

Political: Red state/blue state, banjo music, being a "John McCain Republican"...and the list goes on.



Ego: Fighting forest fires, being a super cool engineer, his incredible ever-expanding education, going to the gym, his gay midget porn collection, etc...



Environment: Bio-dieselÂ…all 10% of it



Motorcycles: 600s are the best and everything else sucks, Death of the V-twin, the grey haired pony tail reference, etc...



You can have more than one reference in each category. You just need 5 total references for the week.



The standard prize will be a bottle of Advil.



If you feel additional categories are needed, post them and they will be added.

Do you ever take a step back, look down at the horse and think, "Oh yeah, that f@cker's dead."



...or do you just keep kicking even as the carcass bloats and begins to rot?

Hey, nice job comparing an '01 to an '03.



So, you spend all day at 10,500 rpm, do you? Rev it and dump the clutch at every stoplight?



I'm not wasting any more breath on your autistic ass. You're right, 600 Fours are the smartest, bestest motorcycle you can by for the street, cuz you have one so it must be true. And you are not totally missing the point at all, neither, nuh-uh.

Yes, you're right. An SV650, by comparison, rolls on iron hoops suspended by buggy springs and stopped with a big wooden lever.

Yeah, I like to have bugs splatter in my face, and damn helmets prevent that. I hate helmets.
