Best Bike in the Whole World - Ever

Normally I'd post something like this on the viddie thread and hope you checked in to find it, but this review is worth more than that, so I am granting it it's own thread.

Meh, it's no Guzzi.

All right, I'll bite. What are you referring to HAP? We don't all mix bourbon with our hamsters - I don't anyway.

Other than a KTM or a Guzzi review, neither claiming to be the best in the world, we actually see very few of the new bike reviews at this forum. There are 4 or 5 other bike mags out there now swearing the bike they just rode for 50 miles is the finest bike ever built, conceived of, had a wet dream about or might yet be built. The speed triple is but one. I like the new Day675R myself and as I own a S4RS currently and have an 02 Day955 with more hp than the trip, I think I'll keep the S4RS and get a new 675R to put the tingle in my jeans or up my spine.

Now a super fine cafe racer, classic race bike or super bike is worth a thread unto themselves.

I've heard of municipalities cracking down on stunters, but is there truly a law against talking about it down there?
You can't even say "wheelie"?

I hope the bleeps in the film were a joke since I've been dreaming of retiring to Perth someday.
This, together with the way the cops were behaving in the excellent movie He Died with a Felafel in His Hand is starting to make me nervous.

I got some ordinary news for you HAP, well it all depends on how you take it. I took my LITTLE Kato to The Creek yesterday for its first trackie and it ate the 675R's - bones an' all. The positive way to take this HAP is to say, "Hmmm maybe it is time to succumb to my inner desires and get one of those Duke-type beasts, after all it is a far more capable bike than the 675R".

Yes Ruger, they are pushing the point a bit strongly - tongue's in the cheek, but those are the laws.
