does this make me a Bad Person?

...figures, but seriously I've managed large groups of all types of engineers and it's really a joke that most EE figure they can anything.  My MEs would cringe when I would drive my 73SS Nova drag car to work, but it kept them on the team.  No offense meant just written sarcasm....

    Say it ain't so !!!!! Actually I personally know/worked with Eric Buell in Milwaukee, he's a very bright M.E. (but I'm an EE so by definition there are no bright M.E's, I have ridden and have buddies with Buell's and they ARE getting better. 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
