Default Re: Riled ya up

Actually I'm off work this week and was bored, but yea. Why, did you think KPaul needed help riling up the MOrons? Apparently it is easy:



Step 1. Post Cruiser comparo.



Step 2. Have the Harley not win.



Wait I'll revise that:



Step 1. Post comparo



Step 2. Have bike other than reader's not win.



P.S. Getting me riled up is very easy, ride the speed limit (or less) in front of me on a twisty road. Nothing works better or faster!

Ah Burnsicans, good to see your print again. MO just isn't the same. Where's the edge? No articles in Cycle World? Has the world lost your motorcycle essays for good?

Default Why bother?

Not sure why my first post got deleted but i will post it again...



Why bother with any of these bikes when you can get a Honda Gold Wing for around the same price? The Wing will best any of these bikes on any test you want except it will give up handling to the BMW.

Default You need the new KPaul II bag.

Try the premium model (KPaul II punching bag). Comes with nails (as in tough as nails) for stuffing and a voice (synthesized from the man himself) expelling all of the famous KPaul prophecies.

Great review, although I'm a little upset there were no immature photos of smokey burnouts.

" Getting me riled up is very easy, ride the speed limit (or less) in front of me on a twisty road. Nothing works better or faster!" Same thing works me up as well. I actually dred sunny weekends which brings out all of the Harley boys who can barely ride their underperforming Hogs.

In other words, you'll be buying a Harley soon.

Default Defending the GOLD WING vs. the Harley

The Wing costs $17,999. For that you get a state of the art engine:
[*]A huge part of that is due to the Gold WingÂ’s 1832cc

overhead cam horizontally opposed six-cylinder

engine. As youÂ’d expect from any engine this big with

the name "Honda" on the valve covers, it makes plenty

of power. As youÂ’d expect from a Gold Wing, the

power is smooth, thanks to an engine counterbalancing

system which spins the transmission input shaft,

clutch and alternator opposite from the crank. Fuel

injection means engine response is exact and precise,

whether your trip takes you to a Colorado

mountain peak in November or a Louisiana bayou in

June. And thereÂ’s even an electric reverse! *

Lots of onboard storage:
[*]Luggage? Forget about bungee-cording a gym bag

the seat. This is a Gold Wing—the motorcycle that

practically invented modern luggage compartments,

and certainly has elevated it to its highest execution.

The trunk and saddlebags are all weather-resistant

and feature integrated locks. You can even lock and

unlock them with a keyless, wireless remote that fits

onto your key ring. *

Superior ergonomics
[*]The Gold WingÂ’s luxurious seating accommodations

are apparent even in the showroom.

But its air management—how that

bodywork not only keeps you warm

and dry, but does it without buffeting

or excessive noise—is truly amazing.

And then there are the creature comforts:

the AM/FM radio with optional

CD changer. The optional CB radio

and standard-equipment intercom.* The

adjustable windshield and adjustable

controls. Cruise control. Wide, flat

footrests, long handlebar grips and flat,

cushioned floorboards. *
