If MO is the Black sheep of the MC journalism industry, it needs to work on it's wealthy but cool riding buddy benefactor pool. Sure wish I qualified.

You know, now that CN is digital and CW is doing even more digital, I believe that MO was and is ahead of the curve on this one. I know MO has better than a decade under it's belt, but it's really been a leader in internet mc info. As soon as they release the Droid app they'll be the mobile leader, too.

+1 for being the first non-British motojournalista to use the word "peccadilloes" in an article Keep away from tired terms like 'bits" and phrases like "spooning on" a set of tires and you'll turn out just fine!

oh, yeah... a few things: the bike is rockin; b1tchin about low speed handling on a Duc, much less any cruiser, is basically unclear on the concept; and the front end is pushing because you don't have b@lls enough to keep rollin on the gas thru a turn, so the spinning mass of that heavy rear tire is trying to pass the front

Grumpy

The thing is dead sexy in person no doubt IMO. It looks odd in pictures but works in the flesh. Unlike the B-King which was completely opposite for me.

Barely remembered, the B-King hasn't been imported by American Suzuki since 2008.
