How can u like one-brand racing during Daytona Bike Week? when track time is at a premium? It is basically a big BMW commercial. Air-cooled twins up to 1300-whatever cc are alloweed in FX, why doesn't bmw enter a couple of bikes in there for some exposure? beat Honda. right.

I sympathize with you. Im in the samresituation with my 24 year old stepson.he wants to buy my son's GIXXER 600.My wife is in complete opposition...She rides ,I ride and my son rides (along with her sister and three of her brothers and several nephews)but shecant face the possibility of her son riding. Maybe hypocritical to non parents but motherhood isnt always rational. Ive told my son not to sell. Ive told my stepson(6'5'',190 lbs) to buy something a little more beginner friendly but that I cant lend him any cash or cosign a loan. I'm sure eventually he'll buy a 600 sportbike but I dont want to be an enabler.....If something happened it may well wreck my marriage. When he buys something I'll help him learn and pay for track classes(like I did for my son) but I dont want to be "responsible"..whatever that means. Life aint always simple,is it?

Now if you could just start an argument with yourself we wouldn't miss KP so much!

I suggested that MO offer a free subscription to whomever first correctly identifies Kbuckets new handle. But the tightwads won't answer.

You know that the Kook will never go away. Like an old moldy block of velveeta.

I think we could get the 12 members of the GPTB to pitch in a buck each and cover that ourselves.

Re: Boxers vs briefs

BMW missed out with that new K1200R. Instead of a transverse inline four, it should have been a radial.

Imagine a boxer with two or three more cylinders disposed radially. Or nine.
