I enjoyed JB's take on this bike, but if a test or comparo on it is available on another site and you can't test or compare it soon, why didn't he just include a hyperlink?



One of your readers just included one in this very thread



Your dyno test would then be a great reality check. Leverage the internet guys, and reduce both cost and heat!

Default Appearance isn't everything

That makes almost a full 6, right?

Default Re: Great Price/Performance Ratio sure beats a Harley

Why don't you write a chatty review of the Lightning, include a hyperlink directly to the article in an appropriate place, edit it (caps, ie/ei and so on) and submit it for posting.



I'm trying to get MO to encourage that sort of thing. If you find a road test or comparo include a link to that too.



You write pretty well, KPaul, when you try.

Despite your uneasyness to call a spade a spade....I will continue to call all peope of oriental descent a jap. And all people from the vicinity of England will still be known as a Brit, as well as all Hispanic, Spanish and Cuban people will be called mexican, unless they really are from Mexico and then they will be referred to as beaner. And don't forget all middle-easterners shall be forever referred to as sand-******.



But, for pointing out my diliberate use of ethnic labeling, you will forever be referred to as boob. (mainly becuase, well.....you're a boob)

The complete lack of original thought is inherent to the entire class. All the Japanese manufacturers created these bikes as direct copies of Harleys in an attempt to squeaze into that market niche. C'mon, a fake hardtail look on a Kawasaki? What model year was that when Kwaks were still running the hardtail frame?



It's pretty simple, but when you use a cookie cutter, aren't all the cookies gonna look the same?

Here's my two cents: I can't enjoy a bike with as wimpy a motor as the Vulcan. I don't care about how comfy it is, etc. When I go to twist that throttle and nothing much happens, I just want to ride something else.

I'll read anything by John Burns even remotely connected to things mechanical. I don't see anything on the masthead that says Sportcycle. I don't f****n' own a cruiser and never will, but that doesn't negate someone that does. It is still a motorcycle.
