Been staring at the Ducati for so long it's starting to look like a mini bike:

There's enough things that can go wrong on two wheels, why complicate it with:

Re: #371: This or That? 2006 Ducati GT1000 vs 2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

The difficulty I'm having with this one is comparing a current model (Triumph Bobber Black) to a piece of history (Ducati GT1000). Things change so fast in the industry that bikes kind of age like dogs... that is the Ducati is about 77 year old technology and styling. I guess if we were to fast-forw...

Re: #370: This or That? 2018 Honda Gold Wing Tour vs 2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

Understand why you would say that as the voting is very... very... very light. I looked at the two bikes with the good angel on my right shoulder and the devil on my left shoulder, and since I'm right handed my 'touring soul' hit the Wing button before I could think it through. After reviewing more ...

Re: #370: This or That? 2018 Honda Gold Wing Tour vs 2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

Got to be totally honest here... I'm a touring guy... long rides into the sunset. BUT... and I capitalize that but... something about the Triumph Bobber 'Black' (I specify 'Black' because the other bobbers are nice but there is something special about the 'Black' version) stirs my soul to doing some...

Sorry CB but there's a new ride in town. I know there are a lot of 'naked' riders looking at this ride and expressing their preference to not ride their grandfather's recliner, but when we suit-up for that 500+++ mile ride into the great beyond come talk to me about your comfort level after the firs...

Re: #368: This or That? 2018 Suzuki GSX-R750 vs 2018-Honda-CB1000R

Trust me, I'm a touring guy at heart and one of my first bikes was a '80 Kawasaki KZ1000 Shaft, but Kawi hasn't changed the styling on the Concorse since... well... forever. Bored to tears with it... :roll: I truly wanted to knock-off the Honda but this bike just couldn't do it. Very close, but miss...

Mike, Now that sounds like fun. I previously tried to send you messages within the web site, but don't think they got through. Let me know how you want to communicate and we can establish a baseline for the table content, order of bikes, access to their information and figure out how to move forward...

Might not be readable, but attempting to take the specifications from each bike and build a comparison chart of sorts.

Something about the Honda captures my desires more than the boring Suzuki styling. Seems the performance would be about equal. Either way not a big fan of eating bugs but believe the Honda would be a smoother ride.

Thanks... I'll give it a try. Like the interior, looks comfy. I'd guess it's a Cooper?

Re: Total Motorcycle Cool Wall - Suggest the next bike to review

I understand how this is moving (morphing) forward and understand that this cannot be the next bike, but sometime in the future:
In "Rider" magazine I just saw the 2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black....... OMG
