Ducati + Harley = 2



Are you sure you're an engineer?

Yes, but the question is: can I enjoy my PlayStation games on it with the cruise control on?

You've got to be sheeting me. I get a big screen tv before I ever pay over 50 cents for a map. Those darn japs are still fuming over getting their arses handed to them in WW2.

I only buy electronic gizmos after they've been out on the market many years or have gotten to under 100 bucks. I'd have a hard time paying for an electronic map though when you can buy entire computers with screen an all for under 500 bucks these days. I could ride my motorcycle a few years on 1800 worth of gas.

Motorcyclists as a whole seem to be a frugal bunch.(I didnt want to use the phrase cheap bastards) Why would you spend $1800 when you can find one for a 1/3 of the cost at Costgo or Tigerdirect? What bike is Yammy going to put it on anyway?

I bet you can do more pushups and have a better MSF score too. Too bad you will never be a motorcycle rider. Can't buy that tag with a million bucks, or as many 'Freddie' schools that you can attend. Better go make sure the battery has charged, because you haven't ridden since the last time it died.

I can appreciate modern features like anti-lock brakes and fuel injection. But it seems to me that this "feature" would destroy the romance of motorcycling. Why would I want a mechanical voice to tell me what to do?

Get it for your cell phone. A lot of Cell phones now have GPS built in Sanyos are well known for it. Just use a headphone and it will give you turn by turn directions.
