Hmmm. Tough choice... the new Duc or the Ulysses. Let see a head-to-head comparo!

Impressive but I wonder if I could do the same thing on a Buell Firebolt "Black Thunder" or a Daytona 675 "Black Knight" ..I am sure my trusty Ninja could do it.

I personally wanted to get more detail on the moose guts and heated glove burns. Its those details that make these stories a hit. (pun intended). Plus it sounded like some type of redneck road kill dinner recipe. Throw guts in gloves add some uncle roys bbq sauce and your set.

I met Gary Eagan at the Cycle World show down in Houston. He is a great rider & person who has inspired me to be the best I can be in riding and all walks of life. I wish I could race him from Alaska to Florida while I rode the Buell Uly while he rides his mighty Duc. I'll write the story if MO makes it happen!

At 100 miles a weekend you'd die before you would make it halfway.

VFR is a very nice machine... I want one with ABS and Hard Bags i.e. it would be my perfect commuter bike here in rainy Seattle..

I just finished the Alcan 5000, a TSD rally using gravel roads in BC, Alaska and the Yukon on a Suzuki V-Strom (2nd place among bikes over 700 cc). It held up well for over 8000 miles of long distance riding including the rally and the distance home. I think a 'Strada, 'Strom, Ulysses, and Tiger shootout would be great. Need a volunteer rider?
