Excellent job boys. There is no way a print mag could ever do an article with this depth.



I'm sure the fact that you actually had fun riding something other than a UJM sportbike will send the squid/tankbag comparo crowd into absolute hissy fits.



I'm most interested in the MultiStrada and appreciated the in-depth evaluation.



I'm looking forward to more tests like this.

Great job, hope you can run the Buell again on the dyno with the race kit. I have a new 2004 XB12S with the race kit and you guys are right it is a monster wheelie machine, plus the exhaust noise now out powers the lawn mower sounds with the kit muffler.

Hey, I did work the "Burger Barn" into the story. Hopefully that'll hold em over.

Yep that's a very nice, ably piloted, Victory V-92C. Wasn't somebody just asking about track days on non-supersport bikes?

Nice format. I'd like to see video's though. Especially considering this was done on a new track.

Just beware the "Why didn't you include this bike?" crowd.
