That... didn't exactly sound like a compliment for my bike. But point taken.

Yeah...


... Sigh. You just brought up something nasty. I happen to have a little (it's actually really big) 150cc scooter and I was out throwing a seat cover on my bike today when I noticed something; The scooter has an 18 inch, 140 wide, aggressive 70/30 rear tire on it. MY SCOOTER HAS A MORE AGGRESSIVE TIRE THAN MY BIKE!!!

If that's not depressing I don't know what is.

Don't worry Apple. Scooters are fun! For a short time I enjoyed having an Aprillia Repsol Replica 50cc two smoke, complete with expansion chamber. Noisy, slow, and fun. Top speed of 49mph going slightly downhill. Wife wouldn't ride it though so off to a new home it went.

I'm kinda curious to see what BMW is gonna do with the new Husky 650. They say they want the price to be comparable to the KLR. I'm guessing it'll all be built in China to accomplish that.

LOL, right, because the DR 650, the KLR 650, and the XR 650 L are just figments of our imagination.

That's OK, I just realized I got the new NX700 confused with it's current even uglier step brother the NV700. I don't have any excuse, I'm just stupid

Should've kept it and put a Rotax 250 in it that ATK used, 50+ HP.
My ATK's are faster all the way around than XTique or even that 640 was.
Guess thats the reason I keep them around, I should get it out of the shed
and clean it up and start riding those again.
