So my buddy and I stop after a ride 08 ZX10 and 07 CBR1000RR. Guy get's out of a geo prisim. "Yeah, I just wrecked my 1098S" me... That's messed up you okay. He shows me the scar on his leg.

Then tells me I should get a DUCATI. I said I was thinking about getting the 08 ZX10. (I am sitting on my bike) He says no you should get the Suzuki hahah. I told him I am happy with my current 636 that I am on right now. He is right next to me. Then tells me the DUC is 170 CRANK HP.

SO my buddy says did you know the ZX10 is about 190HP CRANK... he was like no way really.

Then the dude tells me his DUC was $30K...

SO many clowns out there... Oh he shows me his registration too.

This is just a random story okay:mrgreen:

This is how I would have handles the converstion:

Dude will tell me everything he told you, then I would reply with sincere excitement and awe and say " Ahh dude, no way, that's SWEEET! I can't even believe that. I have to be honest, that is pretty cool and lot of power for such a beautiful bike, so check it out, I took my 636 this morning to Starbucks and had a Venit Mocha at 9:07 am and not the usual 9:04am, but at least got a side of Jave chocolate chips at no charge, pretty narly huh?"

usually clowns end their braging when I respond that way. Works everytime, whether it's a young guy or an old timer, or even my best friend. Once they realize you could honestly care less and that getting A free cup of coffee or a Free set of snowboards for it. They kinda just not brag anymore LOL

I rode with some ducati riders . There bikes look sweet but only get 100 miles out of a tank, are hot as hell with the underseat exhaust, sound like a briggs-n-stratton (a few). I am not by no means a good rider (never did a track day) but they couldn't keep up with me in the twisties or the straights. Some models do look like killer sex, but if I was gonna fork over $30K :eyecrazy: I would of got one of each of the Jap manufactured 1000cc bikes. :clap:

haha i love stories like this ....i rode my bike to a pool hall and this kid walks in telling me how he was this all pro MX rider and how he was sponsored by KTM and how he was sick on the street. He said he close to getting into the AMA but decided against it because he just didnt feel like riding anymore. I ask "what did you ride"
him " 07 gsx-r 600, the fastest one in the state, i would kill liter bikes all day. Your 10r wouldnt stand a chance."

i say " o really ( with huge sarcasm) what was done to it"

him" Two brothers with a PCIII" he stops..........

i look at him waiting for more of a list....he looks at me like i should be impressed.

i say" thats it"

him" yea but man i had a TWO BROTHERS....SHIT WAS SICK LOUD!!!!!!!!"

me" o my god i forgot the louder something is the faster is it "
him " haha hell yea man killed liter bikes and Kawasaki's are junk they are the biggest pieces of shit out there"
me " your a fucking idiot your an 18 yr old retard who thinks your shit is fast because you have never had anything like it in your life....i hate squid fucks like you "
i walk outside toward my bike, he says " if my bike was here i would teach you a lesson "
i laugh and said " o thats right your sooooo good on a bike, your too good. man i wish i had a gsxr, so i could be cool too"

thats funny, although ive seen much worse, what makes the story is that your sitting on your bike the whole time and captain obvious didnt figure it out.

There's too much money in CT. This was probably his first bike and he just bought the Duc for the status and assumed it was the fastest shit out there because of the price. When I was first getting into bikes they all looked the same to me, so it doesn't surprise me he couldn't tell a 636 from a new 10r.

I'm from Naugatuck, where about in the state are you located?

The craziest story I have heard this far was a guy saying that his bike weighed 345lbs...
I am like "huh?"
He said "yep, thats why I love it, cuz its soo light."
I said "where did you get that number?"
He said "its what the the manyfacturer specs say."
I said "Have you ever weighed it?"
He said "no."
I said "Trust me on this one, don't believe what Suzuki tells you. Get it weighed and then let me know how close to that they are."

:crackup::crackup: The guy was talking to my buddy for a while and I would chime in with some dumb comment like V-Twins have great topend and no torque hahaah

Dude that was hysterical... Scary I was in downtown New Haven near Yale. The guy was from Mass, somehere. He had a Ducati hat on too.

But when he told me he had a $30K DUC and was driving the prisim I was confused.

Ohhhhh I forgot the best part he told me it will be $11K to replace the plastics I SWEAR!!! I almost fell off my bike.

My buddy was telling him $11K? you can get a whole new bike...

It was funny as hell... I am laughing right now can barely type... I told the dude I wanted an 08 10 as I sat on the bike what an fing tool :crackup:

Jesus he said something about Nicky Hayden and the Rc51 too... Whatever I think I will just say Starbuck rules next time hahaha
