I barely know shit about that side of the country but isn't Death Valley a little warm during the summer?  And on a air cooled bikes at that?

LOL. You're right. Also the whole DEATH thing.

I was thinking of doing it in October.

One riding buddy picked up his new RNineT this past friday and another one is trading in his Guzzi V7 for a FZ-07 today.

guess I'll get to test ride 2 new bikes this summer. devil.gif

Wait, why trade the guzzi for the fz07?

That was the brand new Guzzi that kept breaking down?  Why didn't he join Team Triumph and get a new Thruxton?

It wasn't a brand new one ('09, 40K) but yes.

He called me this morning with a hilarious story. He gets it to the dealership and despite the sales guy telling him he'd give him $4K towards trade-in, when he got there, the sales guy is like: "oh FORTY KM? i thought you meant FOUR. I'll give you $2K."

My boy was like: nah, i'll sell it on my own so he leaves with no new bike.

Literally 2 blocks away, the bike dies as he's waiting to make a left turn and he has to duck walk it across the street, through a dirt path to a gas station and call for a tow. The dealer where he bought it from wasn't far so he left it there in their parking lot and wrote the owner an email to fix it and list it for sale.

And oh - he doesn't want to buy a new bike ($$$$) so he's looking at places that would take his guzzi for trade.

That's what I said! We don't...at least not in the same way as you guys do.

damn Socialists.

Its a fucking crime we don't get the XSR700



Definitely not as clean or pretty as something like a Monster 900 or Bonneville but definitely more.... interesting... than an FZ-07.
post #6418 of 6912
I wonder if they worried about oversaturating/confusing their own target market but yeah, the British racing green XSR-700 is gorgeous.
post #6419 of 6912

That thing makes the same power as an SV... 


Why bother?

The triples look so freaking cool though. Temptation grows as the wallet wilts.

Anybody aware of this new motorcycle travel type show starting this Sunday on AMC? It looks like it might be worthwhile. It stars Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead.
