Default Re: Willie G, you listening?

Perhaps something like the BMW RT sport tourer with the emphasis more on tour than sport And minus the surging and clunky transmission.

Default Re: Add a Laser Jammer and a Radar detector (Radar/Laser for Dummies continued)

Interesting that this topic came up. Yesterday I was talking to two cops in my complex. I think they were waiting for someone, but anyway besides being pretty cool they did have some useful info. One of them point blank told me that a bright white light will screw up a laser. He said that is why they rarely use it. So I said that if I run highbeams during the day (which I do anyway) I can effectively kill laser, and he said yes.

THAT would be a much better choice.

Default Re: almost forgot

yeah, they all cloned the fuel injection, liquid cooling, hydraulic clutch, shaft drive, rubber mounted motors, etc...



The VRod is nothing but a clone of the metric cruisers...



HD is nothing but a clone of Indian...



All cars are nothing but clones of the Model T...



The Model T is nothing but a clone of the original two wheeled push cart...



Give me a break with all this 'clone' non-sense.



There are a ton of cool bikes out there. It is a shame the majority of us can only own one, or two at a time if you are lucky.

Default Re: Too much FoxNews for the Captain.

And if Bush had won one of the other big states it would have gone HIS way. We can play the "what if" game until the end of the world.



People always whine about how Gore "won the popular vote." What you are forgetting is quite a few overseas military personnel absentee votes that weren't counted, and that Gore's camp pushed not to be counted. Active military personnel typically vote Republican. What a coincidence! So to say Gore won the popular vote is misleading.



Aside from all that, the popular vote doesn't matter- the electoral vote does, and Gore didn't win that.



"Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades."

I forgot to add that Gore LOST the popular vote in FL.

Default Re: Hey Sean you owe me

I would never apologize for calling you an idiot.



Even if Radar Roy sells a Laser Jammer that jams lasers and cooks dinner and makes your bike 3 minutes per lap faster around the Sepang Moto GP circuit, you'd still be an idiot.

Default Re: Bike Sales - Rant?

I really thought the SV1000 "naked" would be a huge hit (at least I thought it was a cool bike, but I'm one of the few wackos who bought an NT650 Hawk GT new from the showroom floor after it had sat there collecting dust for 3 years).



I recently read that Suzuki pulled it from the market this year... and that the SV1000S isn't selling well at all. Man, if I had the opportunity to buy another new bike, that one would have been near the top of my list.



What's the scoop on these poor sales? Are buyers of Japanese bikes only buying sport bikes and big-displacement cruisers?



And how are the V-Rod and Victory Vegas/Kingpin selling out in the marketplace? I sort of like the V-Rod but not the seating position or that price... yikes, $18 large!



There is a Victory dealer about 10 miles from my home and they seem to have a ton of inventory piling up. It might be a local issue(Northern CA) but I have yet to see a single Victory Vegas on the road. I still think that's a sweet looking ride.



As an "inseam challenged" rider, I like the low seat heights of the custom-style bikes, but forward controls just plain suck for me. I was told that Victory offers a kit to move the foot controls rearward, but H-D seems to only think that everyone wants them even further forward.



I'm still waiting for Erik Buell to build a real sport-touring bike around the V-Rod engine... and if he could price it like an SV1000, it would be really great as long as I'm dreaming.
