You poor saps aren't still using IE are you?
IE 7 here: or "Microsoft ripped-off Firefox, and all I got was this lousy web-browser".

:wink:

I shut off 7 and have no problems with 6. Too many things from my work don't work well or are supported on others.
Actually, it's just the opposite with me (on this crapbox): I had trouble with Firefox and IE6, 7 has done really well. I've been using it nearly 2 years now, but still like to poke a stick at MS.........

ABS - these need it

Excellent

No more " layin' 'er down " as an excuse for not knowing how to brake effectively and having actually locked up the rear wheel and slid out

maybe they will actually use the front brake too since everyone knows you'll " go over the bars " if the front wheel locks

precious

a bit of a stretch claiming H-D to be technologically advanced. Didn't BMW have ABS in like 1941 ;)

I think few people, even people who aren't impressed with HD's technology or performance to cost ratio, would argue that they build a high quality product. Materials, fit, finish, and assembly are top notch. The CVO bikes take it to another level. I sold and rode many of these bikes when I worked at HD, and I can say every tiny detail on the bike is the best it can be. They have their own assembly line, use the best possible components, even hidden fasteners etc. are the best. Are they worth the money? Hard to say; their NADA values are higher than the standards. You couldn't "build" the bike from the catalog for the same money you'd spend. And the paint they mention in the article is just unbelieveable. I'm looking forward to checking these 08's out when the arrive. Wouldn't buy one, but I do admire them!

What, no news about a liquid-cooled Buell?
Not so sure I like the new format.
Yeah, they are falling down on the job. No liquid cooled Buell remarks, nothing in the news about Aprilia's CVT bike (which has some VERY interesting implications: imagine a 70 HP sportbike where, NO MATTER WHEN OR WHERE YOU OPEN THE THROTTLE, you get 70 HP immediately. You would run circles around a 600 supersport, dispite being down 30 HP)

And when reprinting Harley's press material, not including the notes that the ABS extends to ALL the touring and VRSC models, at least as an option if not standard. This is a big deal change, and says that ABS is getting inrodes in the US at least among the cruiser crowd.

not to be mean, but I've noticed that almost all of your recent stories have been done by a competitor several days before your reviews have been posted, in the same order.

Yeah, what gives MOrons? You got completely scooped on teh new Trumpet Triple, the Aprilia and now the Buell.

The earlier ones I can see 'cause y'all were in the midst of the big website conversion, but an Austrian water cooled Buell is huge news for the American motorcycle industry.

Change for Change's sake

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I am resistant to change, at least until it is demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that change is beneficial; i.e., we are moving to something bigger, better, faster, stronger, whatever. Now the site looks like every other site, is less convenient to navigate, and has lost most, if not all, of the personality that made the old site unique. Sure, it had its glitches from time to time, but that seems to be the one characteristic that hasn't changed.

Beyond style, however, content is the big deal, and content is suffering mightily. I'd much rather have quick, comprehensive coverage in an old-school package than have the guys waste their time with glitz. I sat quietly for days waiting for the site to post something--anything!--on the new Harleys and the water-cooled Buell. Some of it finally arrived, but it's basically a cut and paste of the factory info, and doesn't even cover all of the significant items included in the factory release!

I guess I haven't seen anything here that would persuade me not to resist change. This site has for years been my first stop when I log on, but it just ain't keeping up with some of the competition. We should demand a return to normalcy. Where's John Burns when we need him?
