You guys are a joke. The Triumph Rocket III is the ultimate Godzilla cruiser and would leave any of the bikes you tested in the dust without raising a sweat. Didn't Triumph spend enough advertising money on your magazine or do you only test V-Twin Harley clones??

I have ridden most of the bikes in your shootout and bought the Honda VTX 1800C Spec 2. I would challenge you to match the stability and comfort of the other bikes after a 750 mile day. I rode my VTX from Louisville,Ky. to south Ga. in a little over 11 hours. Some mountain rodes,some rain, a lot of freeway riding. The VTX has proven to not disappoint me yet. I have a little over 10,000 miles in six months. I get a lot of people telling me what a good looking bike it is.

Really?

Well, perhaps then you know a way to force Triumph to provide a test bike for MO whenever MO wants one. Or should MO delay testing big cruisers for months or years while waiting for a Rocket?

If the man who spearheaded the development of the Honda Valkyrie hadn't died, that bike would still be produced. As a proud owner of the best cruiser ever made, my 44 years of riding say that it would have whipped all the latest contenders. If you get a chance to ride one, you will see what I am talking about.

You pass every time because you are afraid it will show up your present ride for what it is...an antique, underpowered, overpriced lemming machine.
....that would be worth more in a box in pieces than a valk was new..

Oh, good god. Let's not pretend the Valk's sh!t didn't stink. It was a cool cruiser and concept. But it wasn't a groundbreaking machine. I liked it because it was a Goldwing without all the extra crap or weight.

Yup. It's true. Every time I tell people I have a motorcycle, the first thing they ask is, "Is it a Bandit 1200?".
You too?

Man, if only I had a Nickel for every time I heard that question, I'd have like 13-cents.........
