I think they are going to merge into "Starbucati" and are warming people up to it before they announce it.

Harleys come with a mix tape of "born to be wild", "bad to the bone", and assorted ac/dc that must include "highway to hell". it seems like every poser hd rider has to blare those songs while rolling thru town, trying to show off how badass they think they are or rev to the point of blowing their motors at stop lights.

In all fairness, I don't care what you ride, if you're on two wheels you're cool to me, until you prove otherwise anyways!

Cheers to the best bike on the road......the one you're riding!

would it be horrible to wear one of those at a black lives matter rally? sneak up in front by the news cameras that will inevitably be there and act like a regular protester with a different chant......

I preemptively despise people who play music while riding a motorcycle. They should drive a VW convertible instead.

My music is a symphonic blend of my throttle, horns blaring at me, and screeching tires, with the added background vocals of other drivers screaming "ASSHOLE!!". Hidden track includes police siren with autotune (PA speaker).

Its just hard to give up the feel and personality that now seems to be missing in japanese bikes.

The credit card group will always be there just as it is with high end sports cars. There are also those who stretch their budget to own one because the experience is worth it.
Insert a first gen Hypermotard for the 848. I bought mine on the spot and have NEVER made an impulse buy like that in my life!
I absolutely love the beauty and lines of these European bikes which the Japanese bikes just seem to be missing. I'm not sure I can quantify it but they just speak to me in a different way than my VFR. I love my VFR and not sure I'll ever sell it. The thing that I don't like about my Duc is that it doesn't rev as high or is as fast as my VFR or other Japanese bikes I've owned. Someone asked me recently if I could have only one bike which one would it be? I thought about it for a while and said my VFR.

Agreed. Especially when they don't even bring a bass player.

I assume you dont mean headphone wearer.
Are we talking about the toolbag pirates with enormous two wheeled cars that mount half of the wal mart audio display to their dash and ride badly through town competing with themselves to drown out their 80s butt rock with overreving strait piped motors that convert gas to noise with all the hp to weight ratio of a trail 90?

..... No, they dont rub me the wrong way at all.
