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.

You're missing my point. My point is that the shootout should evaluate the bike itself, as it comes stock. Once you add accessories to one (bags), you have to do it to all of them to keep it fair, and the test soon becomes who has the best accessories, not who has the best bike.
