Relatiively speaking, if you buy into that whole thing, "middleweight". Does that make it a "chick-bike" these days like they call the 883 (or the 350 Boss Hoss)? That Absinthe (or Ouzo) stuff can be tricky for young guys, if you should find some stashed around, Do the Right Thing! and send it to me for disposal promptly.

I don´t want to disappoint you guys but potato-potato sound was invented by the europeans. The frenchies invented the V-2 single pin twin engine. The germans invented the V2 missiles. The english invented the paper weight with a picture of the Buckingham palace. You can´t argue with that.

Yeah, right. Unlike the fascinating world of Japanese 600cc and litre class sportbikes where each year yields more innovations that fewer (much fewer) than 1% of riders can take advantage of.



I'll admit the Triumph 675 was a breath of fresh air, but really, the ratio of engineering effort (not to mention motojournalist ink) to actual rider benefits in the two major sportbike classes leaves little room to criticize cruisers.
