    Essentially the same thing.

    Sweet bike. I really think the set-up of helmet storage in front and tank under the seat makes a TON of sense. All it needs is a partial fairing… Just my preference (I think — not having RIDDEN anything yet, I’m shouting out my ignorance for the world to hear). I also sat on the Shiver. Very nice as well.

    …for 2008 has selectable manual/automatic.

    But those Honda’s with shaft drive… Nice for maintenance.

    I was in Renton Motorcycles on Sunday with my wife, basically drooling on bikes and gear…

    In the boots section, I overheard some one say something about the larger boots not fitting under the shift lever. I’d never even considered that. So these steel-toed work boots and such — are they a problem in that regard? Any one have any feedback on that issue?

    …and get up to Auburn a lot. Okay, probably wasn’t you.

    Actually in Seattle, or a nearby town? I’ve seen some one around the south end riding one of those (Federal Way?). Maybe it was you…

    (no, not THAT kind of magazine) It’s got a pretty lengthy article/review of these. I haven’t read it yet, but the bike (trike?) looks like a lot of fun.

    …and didn’t ask their opinion, I’d have a real hard time not telling them to f%^& off… And if it’s sales people, it’s probably because they don’t HAVE any 250r’s in stock (I’ve yet to see one on a shop floor) and want you to buy what they DO have. Feel free to walk out the door and not return.

    Use your money how you want, and to hell with any one else.

    To what low temperature do you think you’d wear that jacket?

    I tried one on yesterday, and it seemed like a good fit, and was a 3-in-1 kind of thing — 2 removable liners. Any impressions?

    I drive a 2001 Ford Escape SLT — 4-cylinder 5-speed manual. And it’s a commuter and a means to get my main (now) rides to destinations:
    * Scott Waimea tri/road bike with PowerCranks
    * Javelin X-Frame tri bike
    * titanium no-name tri race bike
    * TiCycles Softride road race bike
    * TiCycles Softride track/single speed bike
    * Paul Barkley Softride road bike
    * No-name (though it looks a whole lot like a Nishiki Alien) single speed MTB

    So when I get my motorcycle, I’m going to have to rig up a bike rack on the back… ;^)

    ..but can this be done on a 250? Meaning, can the plastic (or some of it) be taken off? Is this even an intelligent idea? [caveat: I KNOW it’s not an idea backed with any experience.]
