You can ride it to the dragstrip, race it all day, load up the little woman and give the SS guy's fits on the way home.

only the '99s were unrestricted. it specifically mentions the euro ban, but the ban was extended to the USA in the 2000 model year as well.

I'm building one that's stretched out with a chrome swingarm & a 300 rear tire........

& its for a white Army Ranger that's in Iraq right now


If you've never ridden stretched lowered busa.......you have no idea what you're talking about. They're a whole different kind of fun. There isn't much that compares to a 100mph rolling burn out.

There is nothing Racist in asking why so many of a certain demographic pick a certain bike.
The bike is a kind of achievement.

or because i assumed you would notice that you misused the word "infer"?

I mean, people misuse words on MH all the time, even I do. However, if you want to start going to the dictionary, you better make sure your is buttoned up first.

Dont bring a knife to a gun fight, and dont bring your know-it-all attitude a forum populated by a good number of folks much smarter than you.

I shudder at the thought. I see you have also read "The care and feeding of pet internet trolls" - by Anon E. Mouse.

I should probably stop whoring this thread.
