Isn't it funny that there are now categories that combine two opposite kinds of motorcycling? Sport Cruisers, Adventure Sportbikes...Sport Tourers...it seems like these should be totally separate things. The problem is that every kind of motorcycling is fun, so we have to sometimes balance very opposing ideals.



Yeah. It's too bad that if you add all the sportourers and adventure tourers together (and FZ1s and Bandits.....) they sell fewer units than HD does 883s alone.

Yeah but the Harley sucks! At least a guy that never rode one told me that, so I have to believe him.

That's a cheap shot! It's very clear to me that the I-3 will prove to be the ultimate street-bike engine, ever.



So... if the Fonz took that picture you'd just be on him for relating the obvious!



Most excellent review guys, thanks.

I think the previous Sprint ST with a Daytona spec engine would approach Sport/Tour perfection.

ME109R? I like the Dornier Do 335 Pfeil better (pushme pullyou engines). It's a lot faster too.

Great test, I think Triumph also raised the bars for the 2007 model in addition to including a higher screen

IMHO





The ST1300/1100 is a great bike.



The ST1300/1100 is boring.

I've looked at it several times today, and my screen is at the same height it's always been.
