A sport-tourer setup with this motor... that's not a bad idea! If it had good range and weather protection, hard cases, a sporty suspension and geometry, tastefully good looks, and a price that didn't venture too far north of, say, the Triumph ST, it would definitely make my short list.

Yes. Both the Truck and the Viper. Four wheeled contraptions don't usually excite me much. Still, one has to respect 500 HP.



How on earth does one keep the rear end of the Ram SRT10 on the road? The rear box is convenient because you could fill it up with gasoline. You're gonna need it.

Hey man, I just test rode a 2005 GW for another mag. As I went to pull out of the parking lot for the first time, I was waiting forever for enough space between oncoming traffic to make me comfortable that I could get it ramped up to speed without getting hit from behind. When I finally pulled into traffic, I got it turned and flogged the throttle. I almost wound up using the Porsche 911 ahead of me for a launch ramp. That 800 lb beast does a standing 1/4 mile in 12 secs. Handles pretty good too, and the brakes are amazing. Don't knock the modern GW till you've tried one. I left impressed.

The School Zone location was chosen for its very MOness. That was just my version of the classic Johnny B burnout in a handicapped spot video. -Sean

I didn't say the Street rodder would win........just that after losing a few stoplight races, They would be tempted to throw MORE $ away.

Your observations on the GS 1150 are spot on.

Modded 2 valve GS 1000s will give a v-rod all it can handle & then some. I should know I ride a 78 1000C.

It's faster and better handling than the Victories, though the Victories have slightly better brakes and are the best handling "cruisers" you can buy, as long as they don't have a silly 250mm wide rear tire. -Sean
