You're right, it really doesnt matter when the speed limit is 55. He knocked my bike a little bit saying the experience on a ducati cant compare (and it probably cant if I had more time to ride a nice bike), but when he said that all I could think about was getting from point A to B. I suppose if I had a $100,000+ salary I'd be spoutin off too.

What happens? Does the plastic crack? Does it rust inside? Serious question.

Ural makes a boxer.

the people at the local BMW/Ducati dealership are the same way. I guess if you're going to pay way too much for a product, you have to be able to convince yourself that it's worth the difference.

As for me, I lustedf after BMW for many years. Finally got one, kept it two years. That cured me. I still like BMW, just not any better than I like anything else. All designs have their merits.
