Hey guys, I just got back into town and was wondering if anyone pointed out the M109 was not in the test?

All you have to remember in life, is that everyone that never did what you did can always do a better job........until they have to do it. Then it gets harder.

As long as you have a certificate, you can flap your gums all you want.

My old Magna's foot pegs were more Street Rod than V-Rod and it's considered a cruiser.

Wasn't that a WW2 fighter plane? Oh that was ME109.. I think 5 bikes is enough don't you think. You can't get every bike in a shoot out because they may not be available. Just trying to herd these cats "reviewers" around is some organized fashion would be a full-time job. They say in mangement 20% of the people take 80% of your time. I think another bike would create a clusterfrack rember when Sean's brother crashed thay bike..

Default It's Spruiser OK

You are kidding right? That would mean I think one of the Sportster Models would not be a cruiser. Clearly it's not a standard or sportbike. Call it a Spruiser OK. It is more cruiser than anything else.

Yo Buz, Here's all that needed to be said:

"Since more than 5 bikes in a shoot out begins to blur the comparisons we were able to test the following bikes based on our request and availabilty".

What you do is put that right up front in the article. That would quell alot of this bi!tching. You can pass that along since you got connections. Seriously that would have helped.

Going into buying my Mean streak I knew it had a hp deficit. But for a total otd price of $10k(including tax, title and reg) I got a new 05 orange MS with a 2-1 Muzzy meg, Thunder intake and PCIII. My bike is still down some ponies to the others but it is an all around nice ride that is real tough to beat for the $$ in handling, ride, comfort and performance...

Unusually poor story for Motorcycle.com; the elimination of a few bikes, particularly the M109, relegates this to close to zero relevance.
