Default Re: New Survey - Sport Touring Shootout

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.

Good choice. I'd take my 9R with a set of soft bags against a VFR any day. The 9R was a very underrated bike for both performance and comfort.

I think the BMW R1150 RT would be a good choice. First, it fits the category description and is shaft-driven. And it's really an entirely different bike from the K-ship. I also think you should toss in the Concours. Of course it'll finish dead least. But it'll put the new machines into context and be a lot of fun anyway. You should add both bikes to the comparo.

Go to England, buy a Trophy and test it here.

I just did 3100 miles on my Hayabusa... Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Toronto, Canada. Best ride ever.

Shame. If kawi had marketed that bike like honda marketed the VFR, we'd still have it today.



Anyone know where I can get a gold and black 2002?
