This comparo is worthless because of the omission of the (choose one):



1) Honda VFR



2) Harley FXDLSTWDG Super Fat Ultra Glide Softail Wide Boy Classic



3) Munch Mammut



4) My bike, but with saddlebags





It seems all of your comparos lately are catering to the (choose one):



1) BMW snobs



2) Harley herd



3) Dagotistas



4) Jap-scrap football-humping rice-jockeys





What about real-world road tests for the rest of us, like (choose one):



1) V-Twin vs Inline Four Sport Bike Starbucks-to-Starbucks City Test: Which is the Decisively Superior High-Performance Platform?



2) Racer-Boy Graphics ZX-6R vs Classy Black ZX-6R: Which Is Even More Totally Perfect Than Any Other Type of Bike?



3) Japanese V-Four Sportbike Comparo: Testing Today's V-Fours from Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha to Determine the Ultimate Refinement After Twenty Years of V-Four Sportbike Domination.



4) Honda V5R-211S: Honda's V-Five MotoGP Machine for the Street.





If you don't improve the content of this site, I will (choose one):

2) Renew my subscription but keep *****ing



3) Announce the canceling of my subscription for weeks, then immediately resubscribe under another name but still act like a tool. Several times.



4) Be forced to get a life.

The triumph has an estimated $1000 service every 12,000 miles?



Wow someone should mention that to the scores of VFR owners complaining about its estimated $750 service every 16,000 miles. I guess the triumph is not the long sought after cheaper solution after all.



Having looked through the service procedures for the 955i Triple it's hard for me to believe the 1050 could be that much harder to work on.

Just wait till they come out with the Chrylser-Suzy hybrid - the PT109. They won't ignore it any longer.

Default No Hondas?

Is it actually a crime not to include the Interceptor and the ST1300 in a ST test, or is it just the type of thing that ought to be against the law?

I love this line in the second paragraph <blockquote>They do three cylinders as well as anybody, and are known for smooth, torquey, reliable powerplants that combine the good characteristics of two-cylinder and three-cylinder engines.</blockquote>



Don't you mean two and four cylinder engines?
