Kevin,

It just struck me as a 'fluff' piece.

It seemed as though most of the 'informative' material was left on the cutting room floor.

Mind, they did have a 'pillion' along for her input regarding comfort...

The vid might seem fluffy, but ours sometimes do, too, because they are meant to accompany the full story in text, not to merely be a stand-alone piece. We are often flamed on our YouTube.com/Motorcycle channel (full-screen size!) for the videos that don't stand alone as a "test." I'd be interested to read their shootout to see what else they had to say. Link?

Maybe we could put a bag over the DL.

If it waddles like a Duck, and Quacks like a Duck, but doesn't smell like a Duck, it may just be a Fat Man with bad gas...........

Kevin,

I assume the article would be in the print rag, which I don't see.

Apparently there is a 'spy shot' of the 2011 Triumph Sprint ST in there, too.

That sounds like something a person who hasn't ridden the new Multistrada might say...
