I was a bit disappointed from the beginning with this typo, "Despite a sluggish economy and an overall dismal motorcycle market, the high-end touring segment is hotting up." Can you spot the grammarical error?

Pretty basic without even any manufacturer or tech specs. With the given title I expected a more thorough read. Somebody really "phoned it in" on this article.

I thought it was a cut-n-paste job from the "New Rider Sticky."

Seriously, I thought that too, but then I realized what seems completely obvious to those of us who have ridden for years, perhaps decades, is all new territory to others who have not.

Its.......A FACT!

IF that's the case this article should've been incorporated into the "New Rider" series being written by Chung.

Since its touted to be a "10 best" article I expect a more sofisticated review. Maybe that's unreasonable ...

Uh ok... I totally missed the "Best" part. "Ten things you may want to upgrade for touring" maybe... But totally missed whats best of those segments.
