Economy Sucks

So I am at my dealer in Mississippi today, and am talking to the owner while the Weezy has her oil changed, and he's like "dude why don't you but a new R1, come on." I was like man they are ugly as shit, no way, I'd actually consider a Gixxer over that beast. I personally think a combo of the crap economy and the ugly stick are going to hurt Yamaha with the R1 this year. IMO
No joke the guy was like they haven't sold the 1st R1 of the year yet, and they have sold out since I've lived here for years. Unreal huh?
They even have Hydroboosalas and Gixxers on the floor just sitting there. Seriously guys, in Memphis, Busa's don't last past March. This economy thing blows goats.

The new R1 has some impressive changes when it comes to engine controls and the engine itself but I'm still getting used to the looks. I have a shift red 04R1 which I still think looks awesome. The black 2009 R1 are pleasing on the eye, but the white ones with the purplish looking frame and swingarm look horrible.

People are not spending like they normally would for sure, it's the toys that come first when people cut back.
