We all know you're the only guy in Chicago with Givi bags on a Shovelhead.

Kawasaki Concours.



Cheap, Reliable, and a steady seller



It is at least a good benchmark even if it doesn't match the others at 9/10ths.

He couldn't help it. He saw that sweet pair of blushing pink Givi bags and realized that they perfectly matched his armchaps.

Screamin Eagle Road Glide or Road Kings as the regular ones wouldn't have the HP to compete.



Both are "sportier" than a Gold Wing but not really in the same class as the FJ or ST.



It would make for an interesting comparo, as as the end of the riding day the question is, did I have fun, and how many miles did I put on.

Mix in a concho-studded Sneaky Leaker and you've got one tough hombre!

And how in the world do you arrive at a Road Glide or Road King being "sportier" than a Gold Wing? the Wing would best either of those in acceleration, handling, braking, etc...



I am not trying to diss either of those bikes as I like them, but they are not in the same category as the Wing or K1200 LT. I would compare those against the late Valk Interstate or that Yamaha V-Star Based Tourer.

What about the Triumph Tiger? That's truly a Sport-Tourer.
