You mean ... there's yet another bike on the road faster than a Harley? Geez.

That little scooter is still more advanced than most of the Harleys on the road!

Ok, that sentence in itself is somewhat .... problematic to say at least. Or it's another way to say "Way to go Capt. Obvious"

Can you tell me of any other bike out on the road that is less advanced than HD's? I think even Royal Enfields by now have more advanced technology in them than HDs

Re: Why Gtl?

Have any of you ever spent any time on a Suzuki Burgman 650? In heavy around town traffic that scooter can't be beat. No shifting and 50 horse power makes for one quick grocery getter that will do 110 on the interstate.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
