    You're kidding, right? I can pack my tent in probably 5 minutes. Why the hell would I ever want that monstrosity flapping in the breeze behind me?

    Wheelies in every gear at any speed?:huh I like the Monsters but this is as big a stretch as I've heard since highschool when guys used to say their basically stock street cars with glasspacks on them could pull the front wheels off the ground.:norton

    No, it was the 620 Dark or something like that, so it was more like a child's toy riding mower.

    Your technical jargon confused me a little bit, but is that why they're so fucking slow?

    8mph to 48 mph in second gear? The faster sports bike's today will probably do 100mph in first gear.

    Nope, you got me there. I only have a HD forty eight, without highway pegs. As a male I wouldnt like to sit in a gyno position and I'm planning on some midpegs next summer. Also I do like to keep control while cornering, that means quick access to the gearshifter and rear brake. As for the cruise ship analogy, we're talking about motorcycles not container ships.
