    Hahahaha. All I've heard for the past year is Bmw this and Ducati v4 that and Suzuki walks all over them. Priceless.

    Well to be fair there is no BMW in MotoGP to walk over and the V4 you speak of is KILLING the field in WSBK.

    Regardless, I'll hold my head up for the Hamamatsu boys today in GP.

    WSBK ... well, yes, if ridden by _one_ guy. Not in general. Look at how the other Ducs are doing, and really it's not looking all that impressive. I'm actually disappointed in Davis so far this year, like the guy but he's not putting it together. Hopefully soon.

    Guys. If I want to buy a used motorcycle as a private sale in B.C. If the seller gives me a gift receipt, Am I skipping the silly 12% PST taxes? That province is killing me. 125$ a month for liability on a 1000cc sportbike haahah .. and the gas price hahahaha I am about to order a few VP 45 Gal of fuel!! Would be cheaper than Premium at the Pump lol

    Sportbikers have been moving away from the Japanese offerings in recent years. Not as much with Honda and Yamaha. It's been all about Aprilia, bmw, and ducati. Sportbikers can be cliquey too. Nice to see those guys get taken down a peg.
    Suzuki=junk. Lol.

    gift receipt? if not related to you in any way then i seriously doubt it, and NO, you dont get to skip the 12%..

    most i've heard in the past is lower declared value but still gotta pay the tax man..

    also, kinda silly to ask this question on a public forum dontcha think?

    merely details i'm sure... this argument will never end. There will always be great riders in a very capable bike, and lesser riders..

    I was gonna say, i'd love to just get an honest comparison.. you're right its all 'how smooth is that' type of talk..

    followed by " what i really love is that you feel like its not really doing all that much, then you glance down and you're doing triple digits ".


    i mean yeah.. i geddit, its fassst!! but they've been saying that for years!! where's the adjectives!!, c'mon where's the character and who's got it!?

    the Pani has more 'brute animal force' is what i got from watching the comparos

    Nobody worries about that 12% tax ..... until the letter from CRA shows up.
