    Article in Rider magazine

    So, I just read an article in rider magazine where they compare a 2014 vmax to a Ducati diavalle. The only bad thing they had to say about the Gen 2 is the terrible gas mileage it gets. I love my 2001 but if I can swing it, I will own a gen 2 after I return stateside. I mean 178 hp at the wheels...

    Sorry if it is a repost. It is an older article, but I thought it was interesting and something you would enjoy. Glad to know that had I picked up the VMAX last year, I would have had the best cruiser. http://www.motorcyclecruiser.com/roadtests/performance_cruiser_comparison/index.html

    classic mcy magazine article

    Yesterday I decided to pull-out an old magazine I haven't read in probably close to 25 years. It is a 'special' publication to me because it has two of my current bukes in it. It's "bike," a U.K. publication from Feb. 1987. The feature article is about the recently-released 1987 FZR 1000...
