Re: THIS WEEK: 2017 Ducati 959 Panigale - VOTE NOW

It's a nice bike, but it belongs on the track or place like the autobahn. Seen too many of these hyper bikes either sitting in traffic wasting away or being ridden by idiots on the highway who think they are the second coming of Joey Dunlop. So yeah, awesome hands down.....but too much wasted potent...

Re: Tourist Trophy 2017

I had so much wanted to go there this year and take my Triumph with me, but alas, it was not to be..first the company wouldn't give me the time off at that time and two, the missus dictated I had best visit her on her birthday in November...and she is she who must be obeyed. :D

Re: THIS WEEK: 2017 Indian Springfield - VOTE NOW

Meh.....another big cruiser in an already overcrowded segment.......both the sport bike and cruiser market segments are far too overcrowded, often with manufacturers offering basically the same models but with minor cosmetic tweaks.

A Goose trying to be an HD.....meh at best, fail at worse.....plus those splashes of red on a blacked out bike look fugly beyound belief, almost fugly enough to distract from that stupid batwing fairing.

Again, the same issues with all battery powered machines. 1) They are not green. There batteries require raw earths to be made, and the mining and processing of these raw earths are energy intensive as is the manufacturing of them into batteries which in turn need to be transported overseas to elect...

Re: This Week: 2008 Honda Nighthawk 250 - VOTE NOW

I've seen a lot of 250's and 185's during my visits to the Philippines, but apart from the Ninja 250, I've rarely if ever seen them in North America or the UK.......just too small for our roads and tastes I guess. The size is perfect the urban and rural streets in the South East Asia region, where i...

Why the hell are we voting on a concept that will not see the light of day for another 30 years? Or rather, why are we voting on a concept that odds are will never see the light of day ever?

Re: This Week: 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber - VOTE NOW

There has been quite a bit of a buzz about this bike on FB and many of my local RR600 crotch rocket riders are drooling over this bike. Triumph IMHO has nailed it perfectly with this retroest of retro bike.....the lines are perfect, the design smack on, the engine looks the part and the more modern ...

Looks like we both are getting older and jaded Thumper.
Plus my spine, wrists, and arse aren't exactly built for these things anymore.
So we got, old, jaded and crippled.......guess we might as well throw in grumpy into the mix as well. :lol:

Re: This Week: 2017 BMW S1000RR - VOTE NOW

I'm voting cool, but only because voting uncool would be a bit harsh. Nothing wrong with the bike itself, but it's been around since 2009 (with tweaks over the years). And overall, this has gotten to be a pretty uninteresting category in recent years. Maybe all the bikes really do seem the same, ma...
