I'm convinced. I have a great running 2006 Buell XB12Ss. Will someone please take it off my hands? If you have a truck, you can just have it. I need a superior bike but can't afford to keep this heap and something severely less comfortable but faster above 10K rpms.

See how stuuuuuupid that sounds? I know because I used to make that same argument when I was 18 and loved my buddy's CBR600F3. Grow up MOKE, I did.

I'll take the damned thing. I suck at riding anyway. I'm just a stupid commuter with no skills that that is too ignorant to know just how bad a rider I am! :)
No, you know what, I can't do that to you. Your life is already miserable enough, what with all the sucking so bad and commuting around, that I don't want to make it worse by letting you add another "yawn" bike to your stable. Try Chicago Cycle or Fox Valley for a Honda. It's gotta be new though. I repeat, do NOT buy used, they are not as good as the new ones. Doesn't even matter which model. Your life is going to turn around, I know it. Good luck.

Argument? no argument here, your buell looks fine underneath you. Is it a crime because I choose something other than your bike? You can ride what you like and I can ride what I like? We both have our reasons for choosing what we ride, I dont think mine is superior, but its proven more competitive.

Have you seen a class thats races Buells and Japanese together other than Moto-st and seen Buells winning?
When they go head to head and the Buell's come out on top, time and time again,...I'll buy one, and race it.

Until then I'am never growing up if thats whats involved. I'll stay young and stupid. Call me crazy but I havent seen a Harley or a Buell continuously beating Mladins Suzuki week in and week out.

So, your Buddies bike was'nt even your bike? Baahhh
I just mean it's immature to say "it's not the fastest on a racetrack? Yawn." Which is basically what you did. Because you certainly cannot argue a Buell of any kind, save the Blast, is not fast on a racetrack. It's narrow-minded to do that because there are a million and one reasons to ride a motorcycle and amateur racing is pretty much the smallest reason that people do it. Maybe the people at Buell thought about this and decided to cater to a larger audience who doesn't really care about what happens between you and your buddies one weekend a month when the weather cooperates. Have I seen a class where Buells beat Japanese brands? No. Have I seen any class lately? Nope. Who cares? I just don't give a damn.

And is there something funny or demeaning about a friend of mine owning a particular bike ten years ago? I don't get it...
