Well.

For the Scapa 16 I can do $18 for an ounce and a half.

Now the Highland Park I have the 12, 18, or 25

12 = $10 per 1.5 oz
18 = $20 per 1.5 oz
25 = $30 per 1 oz



Highland Park is the most Northernest distillery in Scotland. (By 500 ft.) The Scapa distillery is actually across the street.

All of these will be a robust whiskey with a medium + peat reek and hints of leather and banana.

I prefer the Scapa as it is smaller batch and lighter in flavor profile.

We don't serve Zima but we do have an extensive list of ciders that are produced directly for the watered down honda consumer.

Seriously though. I owned a 04 CBR 1k and I will rebuy an 06 if I find the right one.


Despite Marquez (read Bevo) and his ridiculousness

I have never owned a Honda, except for my lawnmower. The 06/07 1k are my favorites and I despise the 08-current model.

Crutch is more of a class clown and is completely likable. Ive been a fan and following his career starting in BSBK. Don't forget he rode for tech 3 for a season. He is not really a factor, though, as long as he continues to win one race every 4 years.

They are not nearly as polarizing as MM. Neither will have as many fans as MM but they will also not have as many haters either.

What R1? The new one is the same size as an R6 and slightly heavier. The Honda feels like a brick in comparison.

I had an 07 R1 and an 08 CBR. The CBR felt leaner to me, maybe a lower seat height/cog had to do with it

2016 R1 = 439 lbs. Seat height = 33.7 inches
2016 CBR = 440.9 lbs. Seat height = 32.2 inches

Yup, the old CBR is a 1.9 pound brick heavier and 1.5 inches lower

Center of gravity is lower on the Honda, makes it feel sluggish in comparison.

I don't see any wheel sensors or anything. I really hope they actually did something worthwhile. That bike is beyond outdated.

Have you ever tried (don't know how to spell it properly but phonetically) Luh-froy-ge? I normally prefer bourbon but this was very good stuff, strong peat moss flavor.

Crossing fingers Honda ups their game. How many do you think they will sell if they just bring their bikes even to the competitors bikes of three years ago? Honda is so hard headed adding electronic riding aides.

Well, except they were the first to offer ABS on a sportbike and the first to develop an electronically controlled hydraulic steering damper.

Which does what when a rider begins to spin the rear wheel coming out of a turn? Should of specified traction control.

My wife and her sister tried Laphroaig when we were in Scotland and both said it was disgusting.

As for the Honda, it doesn't look that exciting, but the some of the others have turned downright ugly in my opinion.
