The main problem with them has been the engine cannot keep up with the frame and so they crater engines on a regular basis, makes sense IMHO. I've also ridden the Street Rod which has a lot of input from Eric's boy's up in Mukwonago, WI. It's a fine machine but I can't get past paying $20K for something that my Honda 600RR will eat for lunch up in the canyons.

My $0.02/worth,

I'm coming out of the closet. The rumors are true, I am indeed a Bad
Person. I wanted you to be the first to know:

All I can say is that it is a fantastic motorcycle that is very fun to ride.
Two years ago, I thought that I would _never_ own the make, and I certainly
never thought I would own anything with that engine. :-) However, the bike
defies many (most?) of my pre-conceived notions, and it seems a generation
ahead of the crowd in both design and finish.

Note that I reserve the right to continue bashing the Bar-and-Shield

How could something that feels so good possibly be wrong?

Ducking and running,


PS. GPZ content... anyone want to buy a well-worn '95, already located in
beautiful southern Germany? :-)

Stuttgart, Germany
