It's true, you really don't notice the size after a few miles. I'd love to put some stupid-loud pipes on one of these and go around doing burnouts and power slides all day.

It's impossible for me (and, I'd wager, many others) to shop around for the 'best' whatever out there, because few bike Dealers carry any variety, and we have no local IMS or other bike 'expo's.'
Good idea, 'Rod, but we're currently too busy with bike reviews to delve into a jacket comparo. Maybe later...
