Default Re: Godzilla Cruisers Shootout--Where's the Rocket???

One too many cylinders to be compared with this crowd I think.

Triumphs always seem to need to be in a little niche by themselves.

Don't worry I'm sure you'll be able to get rid of that Shadow 750 eventually.



Keep saving, you'll be able to get the Harley eventually.

I certainly don't claim to be a genius, but I just don't get the appeal of a bike that costs what these bikes cost and yet still drag parts at moderate cornering speeds. I've tried. At various points in my life I've taken test rides or ridden friend's bikes, thinking "I'm getting older, maybe I should relax, sit back and just cruise." Of course, after about 30 minutes my a$$ hurts and I'm frustrated by having to slow so much for corners, and it just isn't much fun. Given the sales figures, I'm obviously in the minority (again.) I don't get American Idol either, so I guess I'm just a MOron.

Default Be sure to watch the video?

I can't find any video in the Godzilla cruiser piece.



The videos I can find on the MO site include some great ones but seem to have ended in 2003.



BTW, that's a big part of why that when my MO subscriptions lapse I usually wait a few months before rejoining.



it usually takes that long before I see an article good enough to make me miss having full access. Fresh videos would make a huge difference in the value of MO for me.



On the other hand my marketing advise is not highly valued by any part the media industry.

LOVE it. Great work. Especially appreciate the "living with the monsters" section (but would've appreciated a bit more detail here, such as how difficult it is to get to the air filter, how much shop time it takes off the wheels for a tire change, etc.



Thanks a bunch. This kind of road test will keep me subscribin'.

"Suzuki is definitely trying to be original and different..." HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa A V-twin in a heavy steel cradle frame. We havenÂ’t seen anything as original as this since, oh, I don't know....1900??

it's simple, really.



there are old riders.



and there are bold riders.



but there aren't a lot of old, bold riders. and those who are among us are walking with a pronounced limp.



if you are routinely scraping footpegs on public streets, well ... take from the above what you will.
