The Japanese use their cruiser sales to underwrite the sportbike lines as well I'd betcha. If the cruiser sales ever tank then expect to see the racing efforts reduced, sportbike prices rise and far fewer sportbike redesigns.

Re: again the HD faithfull refuse to admit that change is possible

He'd be crazy to pass up some of the deals that are available for the '03 Speed Triples that are around.

I'm sure your mileage would improve if you hadn't reverse your throttle return spring. The throttle is supposed to close when you let go of it, not spring wide open.

Just trying to help.

Just keep the Ninja and acquire a Speed Triple. Eventually you'll own a sportbike, a naked, a sport tourer and a cruiser.

Wasn't it the CEO of GM who said that "America needs GM more than GM needs America"?

People foolishly believe that since the Hummers originally were developed by the military they would be reliable. WWII was a long time ago. Much military stuff designed since the 40's is overpriced high maintenance stuff.



A lot of it is really unreliable. M-16s, Apache Choppers, etc.

I'm trying an experiment. Sort of like rewarding your dog for being nice.

Now if only I could apply the 50,000 volts when he acts up.

You're supposed to have a couple of dirt bikes in there too.

Re: I mean the K1200S, not the RS/GT

A bike doesn't have to be at the total cutting edge racer replica to be a sportbike. A GS500F is a sportbike.

You're right!

Oh, Mr. Cong. My rifle's dirty. Time out while I clean it.
