Re: Ahhhhhhh.................The Duke!!!!!

Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but I gotta give them a big* for that one.* Nice production, good riding, but not a good promo for today's motorcycling community.* Although it was most likely filmed on a "closed course."* It simulates the rider doing those squidly moves in public traffic.* Not what our sport needs right now.* Just my $.02...

Re: Ahhhhhhh.................The Duke!!!!!

if this video was a commercial advertising the bike, i think it sucks.
it depicts riding a sportbike as cutting thru lanes and wheelies and all kinds of illegal things you can do on the road on top of a bike. Thats just putting up a bullseye for everyone to see.
Now on the other hand, if its not a commercial on public tv, then it KICKS !!! right:
my 2 pennies. right:

Re: Ahhhhhhh.................The Duke!!!!!

I agree with those that say that the clip promotes unsafe driving and give us a bad image.

I understand that they may think the bike is badass but you can do the same on a vintage bike or a bike from a junkyard , or on any bike for that matter. They should show more of its features not the fact that you can just wheelie anytime and cut lanes
