stupid rich pricks...

ok so i went for a ride with some of my buddies on sunday morning, and we come to this gas station with about 8 sportbikes parked. we stop and shoot the shit for awhile, well two of the guys follow us. One was on an aprilla (not sure what model, but NICE) and the other on a ducati 999, both is dainese leathers and what not....well we get to the roads, and me basically cruising i am faster then them! just bugs me when they people spend all this money and dont give the bike what it wants!!!!! ok im done ranting now...by the way at a bike shop watched a jetski role into a brandnew 08 CBR1000, it looked amazing on its side!

Is it just that you aren't rich enough to buy nice kit that bugs you. I feel that now I've reached an age where I can pay for 'toys' and spend a lot of money then I deserve it. Doesn't bother me that people are faster than me with non matching kit on shittier/slower bikes.

Get a better paid job and stop dripping, or wait until you can afford matching kit.

Are you saying ducs and aprilias are better/faster than a zx-10 just because they cost more ??

I would love a Ducati...but it all comes down to maintenence cost and frequency, reliability, aftermarket prices, and purchase price. The ZX10 beats what I was looking at on all counts.

In addition just because they are suited up properly with their more expensive bike & garb does it necessitate they go at your pace or a pace not assoc with owning such??? another caveat is perhaps they save their aggressive riding for trackdays and not public roads.
