<KenCrawleySC> .
<KenCrawleySC> I was on the ham radio
<KenCrawleySC> gee. I missed a nice conversation!
<KenCrawleySC> The price of a Rune is similar between its cost here in the States, and in Denmark John.
<KenCrawleySC> My calculations are thus: a beer on tap here is $2.50 Multiply the cost of a beer here by 1000
<KenCrawleySC> you get the cost of a Rune.
<KenCrawleySC> I bet a beer on tap in Denmark is $10.00 US !!!!! Go figure!!
<KenCrawleySC> So, if a beer on tap is 6 Kroner... then all things are equal!!!! A Rune costs 1,000 beers!

<JohnDK> Ken you have rode lot of miles on The Rune - i know from the board - are you satisfied with the handling of the Rune ? - I´m thinking og the the quite special construction of the front fork with the front whelle "running afterwards" the fork - is it "sufficient stiff" ?
<JohnDK> I´ll check the board now ...
<KenCrawleySC> Yes the handling is great
<KenCrawleySC> I have NO complaints.
<KenCrawleySC> I have ridden it up mountains on twisty roads. and hauled ass at 132mph. no problemo.
<KenCrawleySC> and, on the rough roads here in the country in
<JohnDK> Ken - good post on the general message board !
<KenCrawleySC> the little state of South Carolina.... it handles better thyan my Yamaha V-Star
<KenCrawleySC> so, is a beer 6 Kroner?
<JohnDK> Jeff would have written massage board !
<JohnDK> yes a beer is 6 Kroner at the grocery - perhaps a little less ....
<KenCrawleySC> Damn!!!! So my calculations are true
<KenCrawleySC> we will have to ask Hannibal about a beer in Northern Italy!!!!!
<KenCrawleySC> And the Brits too!!!!!
<JohnDK> Ken Yes !
<KenCrawleySC> And, when you drink 3 beers a day at the pub.... You buy a Rune in 1 Year!

JohnDk. others europeand are getting a Rune, j opened a board for european rune owners, we will put there our addres and pictures

Hi people. hahhahahahah
as you where asking my opinion
j am on chat now. not sleeping. very interesting your price calculation.
my opinion is you started to drink some beers before chatting. hahhahah :lol:
j had a little experience in denmark in 1972. it was the first trip abroad with my father. we left italy by car. a long way to Aarhus. italy was very puritane at the time. the best impression in Denmark:
as soon as we passed the border there was a sexy shop selling hard mouvies. and you may see the mouvies in a small room before purchasing.
for me, a young boy was like to be on the moon. a fantastic world. which free country.
the second impact was to see a flat green country. driving you could see a lot of tires sign going from the road into the fields. j was explained that danish were drinking a lot of beers but not much danger as the ground was flat so cars may ride free on the country :shock:
the third impact was when j understood why the people we were visiting asked us before our departure from italy to get some bottles of a famous italian bitter "Fernet Branca" in denmark the cost was ten times more than in italy.
and now a comparation of life and rune cost.
my rune cost as j managed all is around 23.000 euro. at one bar noon time you may drink a glass of good wine and eat a lot of appetizers for 3 euro
at the same bar one tap beer is 3-4 euro. if you purchase a good italian beer like Nastro Azzurro 500 cc at supermarket the cost is 1,00 euro per bottle. one bottle of italian good wine starts from 2 euro.
j suppose that the globalisation equalize the cost of a rune in the world:
one rune= 1.000 beers.
p.s. j drink only sometimes, never before riding, never riding. j am not smoking. :idea: but j have three children :D
that is why j was able to purchase my rune. j saved a lot of money.
ciao brothers nice your talks, now j am of a better humor. j will try to sleep.
