Re: Unobtainium European?
It looks good, BUT!!! We just don't know until somebody goes to Europe and rings it out. I'm always suspicious of fancy intro sites, like the thing won't sell itself. By the by, dixit, the thing in stock tune gives up power to the HD/Porsche, but the chassis may be another issue. Those up-tune stages sound pretty danged expensive to me, especially the mufflers. Being somewhat inseam challanged, I wish the seat was about 25mm shorter. 800 mm is about my comfort threshold. But, in general, I like the concept.

As far as I'm concerned, she's got just the right weight in all the right places.

These tests are so fun I'd do them for free.

Wait, I do them for free!

You tell em Paul. The Max didn't last 20 years for nothing. It's a keeper in my book.

Re: I seem to have gone mad....
No bike show? I guess that's your payback for all those great roads in Utah.

My idea of a best bike is what's best for me. In that respect I like the Thruxton because it looks so cool,, but the standard Bonnie would be a better choice for me and what I want as a playbike.

So... higher bars on the Thrux. or lower bars on the T100 ? I'll probably have a while to ponder while I'm paying off my other vehicals...

As long as you don't ask it to go around a corner I'm sure it's plenty fun.

The link for Harley was punishment for insulting any GPTB member. If you don't know what I just said, then you don't belong here.

Re: Unobtainium European?
Where I live, a straight line screamer is much more fun than a canyon carver. No canyons here to carve. Unless I can get to the track, the twisty roads are many miles away. now where YOU live, I would rather have one of the bikes we tested. That Brutale in Chicago just doesn't do it. Especially since it's about 25, snowing lightly, and the wind is blowing about 40. I AM beginning to hate you Buz! LOL
