      You’re right, you know… WWII was pretty nasty, let’s just leave that out of the history books.

        Silly me, doing something like that would be almost as ridiculous as comparing a motorcycle manufacturer to the genocide of 6 million people.

          Not sure if you knew, but WWII is not called a World War because it focused on Germany and it’s ruler.

          The war is interchangeable, analogy still stands.

                It’s not about the Diavel.

    So does the TG comment refer to service *by* TGs, *for* TGs, or *of* TGs?

    • http://RideApart.com/ Wes Siler

      I think it’s all three. The guys up there love to have a good time.

    My dad and I, we don’t agree on anything and can barely stand each other most of the time. At the vintage motorcycle show at Barber’s this past October we saw a really well built 999R track bike in the paddock and then a Panigale in the vendor’s area on the other side of the facility. We both agreed that day, sitting in the shade by the porta-poties and chugging water from our fountain refilled Dasani bottles, that the 999R made for a nicer looking bike.
