Dude, the Wakan is sexy as all hell.....................Twinstar Thunderstar is sexier though.

Nice bike... the swingarm looks like it molds into the side of the engine.

Blastard! Bastardized Blast!

The thunderstar will only be cool after it becomes a real bike.

After following a few links on that page, I've decided this gem owns them both.

From what I understand from frequenting various forums you are handling this critisim completely wrong. You are supposed to get bent out of shape and start turning towards personal attacks.

the buell looks like something _I_ would have done, thinking it would end up looking good. Unfortunately, it does not.

everything I've read says the blast really is, a blast as is. anything more than some twisties or commuting on surface streets = punishment for your butt and your pride.

that being said, the extended swingarms (unless it really is a full on committed drag bike) just looks dorky to me. :)

MY EYES!   :o
Every zero you add to the tolerance adds a zero to the price.

If the product "fails" will the product liability insurance pay for the "failure" until it turns 18?

There is no such thing as a "nice" Buell Blast. Quality control really went haywire in Milwaukee on this one.

In regards to this post though, it's like buying a Hondo or Telestar guitar and putting Grover or Schaller tuning keys on it, Dimarzio pickups on it, with a Bigsby tailpiece. Now you have a raggedy ass guitar with "some" nice expensive add-ons. It's still a "rag".
