Tobacco companies and shabeens also hate them. They are so capable and so much fun, people forget to smoke or stop for Zamalekas.

The makers of Preparation H and Myprodol apparently had a hand in developing the seat.
They pay Xpat and Damaraland a lump sum per post about using the 500 for adventure trips.

Reason #1: The fanboys come up with colloquialisms like "five-hunny" and make all 500 riders sound like poofters

Can confirm - I was a teetotalling angel before I got my Alpha 5-hunny. 

Now it seems my trips consist of riding from shebeen to shebeen.  Had to ride all the way up the Marienfluss for this beer.

Shit bike also has me drinking Black Label as opposed to proper Namibian beer.

That's nothing - look at the condescending look the shopkeeper is giving us.  Think she heard we trailered from Windhoek to Opuwo :-[

Alas, while we desperately needed protection from vicious hartmann zebra's I think my first post established already that the subframe is useless and shit and can't carry a significant amount of weight.
