Yes, I'm sure you'd talk this way if you were face to face with this man. Internet squids sure have a lot of guts from behind their keyboards.
And Bostrum came out ahead of the works riders at more than one race last year on the tires he was "whining" about. Feel free to quote an article where Bostrum was "whining" about his tires last year to justify your juvenile hostility.
Then again, I suppose you might be a juvenile, I guess that's the way they talk. If that's the case, I'm sorry to hold you to a higher standard.
However, most squids have an extremely short memory and do not remember anything before the 996 and the R1. Within 2 years, even those will be forgotten with the tetrastretta (or however you spell it) and the GSX-R1000. They also do not look at actual supersport wins (heavily honda-favored) and consider only stats and fancy paintjobs.
I wouldn't flame you about "street cred"--my bike (shadow 600) plus my probable next bike (CB750) have street cred only for practicality and reliability. Not squid stuff.
Honda are still squirming about having to make a Ducati of their own in order to compete with the real thing. When you compare the size of the companies and the budgets involved, it just makes Ducati even more impressive.
yes, ducatis are very nice indeed, but hondas and other japanese bikes are just plain faster, and when im on a sport bike or thinking about one, all i think about is speed and the engineering for other aspects will be very good for a japanese bike also, just as good and sometimes better than a ducati. what im saying is that a ducati will handle good and go fast, but a japanese bike will do everything better. we all know its true.
if its already been done, what else is there to do but improve on existing technology? please dont make a out your self with thoughtless comments like that one.
proven: japanese bikes are faster and better in every other way a bike can be better. yes they had to build a ducati to beat a ducati, but how come the japanese can build something better than the inventor??? simple my fellow rider; engineering prowess. look at their flag for god sakes, the sun of the world...they thrive on being the best, its that mentality that makes their products so damn deliciously good. mmm, mmm.
Italians were Hitlers allies in ww2, didnt apologise either
Remember Hitler's friend Mussolini? Massacred a ton of people in Ethiopia with poison gas and not an apology in sight. So i guess that means we cant buy Italian or Japanese bikes coz they were all bad guys in the war and didnt repent. Well, I could care less whether any of these guys like me or look down on me, I'm too busy having a great time on my bike. The fact that all these guys look down on America, but have to come crawling back to the US kissing American ass to sell bikes in order to survive should make Americans laugh at them instead! Buy the bike you like and to hell with who made it, they gotta kiss your ass anyway.
That's bull. I know plenty of Koreans and they're quite pleasant people. I ALSO know plenty of Japanese, and they're nice and friendly. Same with the Chinese I know.
I go to Tufts University, well-known for its international relations program, so the ethnic diversity and percentage of foreign nationals is quite high. I can tell you that no nationality is prone to racism. There are a couple bad seeds in every group, but 99% of Germans, Italians, British, Japanese, Koreans, AMERICANS, etc are really good people. Grow up and quit pointing fingers. It sounds like you're one of that 1% who DOES judge people by their ethnicity.
I just don't get what you're trying to say to to starving student....
Must be because I'm an inferior american..
The point of my post was honda has been a race bike/street bike innovator and champion for countless years, and for them to be glossed over by squids who want everyone to think they fly a faster scoot is stupid. Were it not for the interceptor.. we may still be riding standards with kawasaki style GP fairings..
Anonymous posts make me RESPECT the opinion of those who are too scared for others to even know their name. Who are you? What do you ride?
