For me, it was this pig. I have had close to a hundred bikes and THIS one stands out as the WORST. I can go on and on about the poor features, fit, finish, materials, and specs of this turd. The less than stellar 2000 Ducati Monster Dark 750.

I've had about 30 Harley's and a few others in the past 37 years and my worst bike was a 1999 Dyna Sport. Had it for about 3 months with nothing but troubles for the first week till I traded it in on a 1999 Fat Boy.

The ex-BF bought a V-Rod for me to play with. While it was a beautiful bike, it was a disappointment. Incredibly crappy gas mileage, fit/finish was just ga'bage, and VERY uncomfortable. Was not sad to see it go.

Ooh, careful...lotsa V-Rodders around these parts, and dem's fightin' words. ;)

For me, it was my wife's 883L Sporty. Nothing wrong with the bike in itself, it was just un-rideable for the Fester household. Too tall and top-heavy for her, and it felt like riding a moped to me. Was not sorry to see it go.

Much like Sfarson I haven't really had anything I was terribly disappointed in. And I will admit that if I did find a ride uncomfortable I would've just chopped it to my liking. Just a note for everyone here, sometimes cutting it up is a bit more costly than buying new.... but it sure is fun.:D


Speaking of cutting... Chopping up an '84 Kaw LTD for an alternative fuels project/chopper (yes, its jap, but hell yeah it will look awesome when done.) Does anyone out there perhaps have an old engine manual showing torque specs, fluid levels, etc? I speak HD, and this little thing is baffling!:eek:

And thats what it is all about in the long run. Ride what ya like, like what ya ride.

Hah, great question! You know, my problem is I haven't bought a turd yet and have found it exceedingly difficult to say goodbye when I do.
Hmmm ... 2 bad marriages... no bad scoots. Even the less than stellar marriages were difficult to say goodbye to.:) Fortunately i finally got it right.

Walking away from the 'Rod was easy. Walking away from the BF was a little harder. He's a good person and I wish him the best but it takes things other than toys to nurture a loving partnership.

I also have serviced, ridden, owned (and tried to deny ownership of) many many bikes, but I rack my tiny little peanut to find one I despised, or even despised seeing or hearing.
Now - wrenching on - thats an entirely different discussion right there with merits and demerits of its own!!! Not here, not now - somewhere else, some other time maybe (hint hint!!!)

A bmw is something I have never yet owned - the reason, and more so in the advancement of technology and safety conciousness, and much as I appreciate the importance of this to many people, including myself, albeit slightly skewered - they just seem to engineer so much between the reality of the rider and the synthetic feeling created between him/her/us and the bike itself. Seatbelts and airbags - Achtung Spitfire, Euro 3 and TUV will get you!!!:soapbox
