I'm just droppin this in here 'cause it fits...
After my cat woke my up this morning, at 530, I started thinking...
And, I know Ive been in on-this probably more than I should. But, 1st ,Its lotsa fun, and 2nd, Im avoiding research work that I should be doing (not doing it, pretty good, too). So, this is what I came up with...And, Sorry! But, this is how my mind really works...
The Fischer does have some good points - not the least of them being - some very-nice design work, a set of Ohlins inverted forks, and a fully-adjustable rear suspension. Unfortunately, once you get past the suspension, on the spec-sheet, there's Not-Much there (and, included in Not-Much is a set of Continental tires
zzzz). For all that - and Not-Much - you pay ten-large however - you also get, what amounts to, an extra, 5 hp and 6 ft/lb. of torque.
Let me see
That comes to $3700 more than an SV650 (if you pay list for the SV; and, who does that?). As for Fishers dealer network (as yet, none) warrantee (remains to be seen) parts supply (whazzat?) reliability (too early to tell) and by now you should be able to see the direction I'm moving (though, not likely, on a Fischer).
Yes, I know! Im being a Rat-Bastard about the whole thing, but Thems-the-Facts!
Now, heres the good news(if you have a shred of self-awareness) about the MRX 650. Most of us really dont measure up to anything with much more power than the MRX 650, anyway. Sorry to mess with you illusions - just the same you got over, never sleeping with Super Models (while conscious) SO DEAL WITH IT! So, since, it would take around $2K to up-grade an SV650 to the level of MR X, and you would still have an SV, when youre done; the Fisher might not be such a bad deal (if you care all-that-much about exclusivity, that is).
As for, all of the
Buy-Us! Flag-Waving! Golly! Dont you just feel awful about 9/11, Bull $hit
Hell, ISNT DEEP ENOUGH
for the cynical bastards!
Now, back to my research (you guys know anything about 10th Century, Western Russia?).
