    Kirstie Alley was on Tonight Show some time back and commented that she loved to ride on HD motorcycles above a certain size because of the special vibration involved. Not going any further down that road.

    Got to wonder, though: how on earth could a K100 have vibration? I was under the impression that it was turbine like in it's design.

    I've only ridden the RS model, but it was buzzy below 4,000 rpm.

    That issue is the subject of an ongoing debate, in the bars of Canada, U.S., U.K., and I would think, many other countries.

    I think Commonwealth countries already have a type of loser pays under British Common law.

    In Alberta, "costs generally follow the cause", as the litigators say. The loser usually doesn't pay the winner's lawyer's bill, but he will pay costs as set out in the Alberta court rules, which is a lesser amount, but can add up to a pretty steep number. If the court thinks circumstances justify it, such as where there has been egregious conduct, they can award costs on a higher scale, or even full solicitor client costs.

    The general rule is that costs are entirely at the discretion of the trial judge, and should not be interfered with by an appeal court.
