Re: plan of action

Yeah, I guess you're right, ZRX. I have no sense of humor. I guess it's just that some humor doesn't strike me as funny. It would as if I were to look at you, having never met you, and saying, "How can you go about your day knowing how absolutely silly you look being six feet tall with only a 25 inch inseam?"

Knowing that I said that with tongue firmly planted in my cheek doesn't change the fact that it's stupid of me to say it. Get my point?

Where's the old Seruzawa when we need him?

Re: Another bad review for the new Firebolt (reality check)

You best be talking about San Diego State and not South Dakota State. South Dakota State is a great university, I won't be having you insult it in this way.

Re: agree to disagree

Hey I don't claim to have put a lot of miles in the saddle of a Harley, but I've tried a couple of sportsters and an xb9r and I really couldn't fool myself into believing that I was having fun on them. I'm just saying that I admire those who can.

Why would somebody spend 30 grand (price of a fatboy in canada) on a motorcycle that has poor performance, shakes like a cat sh1tting razorblades, and p1sses oil all over the place? I'll tell you: For the name and the image. NOT BECAUSE IT'S A GOOD MOTORCYCLE. Harley's competition will never be able to generate that image, but they will continue to sell superior machinery at a lower price.

*never overestimate the intelligence of the American consumer*

I might be singing a different tune once I've tried a V-rod, but honestly, you can't really give HD all the credit for engineering that machine.

Suzy and Schlongrider: I bet you guys think Nascar is really cool.

Totally agree with you! I want to believe in the Buell thing so bad. However, you are absolutely right in order for HD to build a quality sportbike they would have to spend a lot of money and they won't do it. So we are stuck with sportbike wantabes like the Firebolt i.e. Quirky, slow, unreliable, unrefined pretenders.

Re: Best post here

I've ridden bikes that were quirky (Multistrada) and slow (monster 620) but they were still a ball to ride. However there is no excuse for unreliable and unrefined in a 10k + motorcycle.
