Re: #367: This or That? 2018 Suzuki GSX-R750 vs 2018-Honda-CB1000R

Oh wow, what a pairing... so hard to choose! I went with the Honda because I love it's modern, compact styling and the fact that it's a 1000CC and I think I'd love to really give that a go. What gave me a chuckle is that it was the Kawasaki review which touted "compact chassis"... Umm... have they s...

Re: 2018 Cool Wall: Your thoughts, comments, opinions, suggestions

The wife's turn to chime in. ;) I watch the effort that Mike puts in week on week to pick the bike, get the information gathered, tally the votes (did you know... I created the spreadsheet for the math? ;) ), move content from main site to forum back to main site... etc. Votes are down but I believe...

I love this end of year Cool Wall, I look forward to it each year. This year’s bikes are a great bunch! I probably should have picked the Panigale V4 but I went with the Kawasaki, Moto Guzzi and Ural. Vote! Have fun! Merry Christmas! :christmastree: :christmastree: :christmastree: :christmastree: :c...

What can I say... there is no other option than AWESOME!!! Oozing with beauty, looks primed and ready for a short but fun ride. I say short because it would just be a test ride... I couldn't afford to buy it! LOL ;)

Wow, thanks Mike for making this one tough! I'm not much of a cruiser person and most of the ones you posted are so big and hefty - definitely not my style. But I did find a few to vote on. The Moto Guzzi, the Triumph, and SURPRISINGLY the Harley-Davidson! I didn't think a H-D would make my list, bu...

Re: This Week: 2017 Zero FXS - VOTE NOW

Hey guys! I voted cool. The main reason being one mile = 1 cent. Wow. Now I get it, electric doesn't appeal to everyone and sales are likely still quite low for this model, so part of my cool is for the fact that Zero continues to refine the line in the hopes that one day it catches on strong.

Mike gave me a last minute chance to vote on this one and I went with AWESOME! This is a fabulous looking bike and with it being more upright I would consider it.

EDIT: I just saw the result, and just sayin', ONE VOTE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE... make sure you vote every week!!!

This is my kinda bike! Super Awesome!

When I started, all there was was a Ninja 250. Today, there is so much...

I just had to vote this bike awesome. Wow, what a thing of beauty! And it's amazing how far Zero has come in such a short time. I think it's wonderful that Zero continues to improve their line year after year even though electric bikes still haven't caught on mainstream. But let's face it, the trans...

Oh wow... is that a mish-mash of all the bikes Total Motorcycle Mike has owned? I first saw his Seca, now I see his Guzzi in it. When I look at it, especially in that bright green, I am super wowed.

I was going to vote Awesome because I just love the fact that Indian sticks so closely to its heritage roots with this model, but then I saw the price... and went with Cool. Sorry but I'd buy a car before a bike at $25k. For me, a bike should be less than $12k. Regardless, this is a very cool modern...

Re: This Week: 2015 Yamaha Super Tenere - Vote Now

What can be said, this is another strong contender in the adventure class and I suspect it has good sales as a result. This bike looks a bit better to me than the V-Strom (sorry Mike) but I do find it a bit pricey. Otherwise, cool!

Hi Cindy, Welcome to TMW! I am sorry to hear of your challenges. I might suggest that you talk to your doctor about your vertigo if you think that is still a problem. You would probably not want to be back out riding and have another vertigo attack. Also, doctors can help with anxiety. That being sa...

Hi Gary! Welcome!

Re: This Week: 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide - Vote Now

In my opinion, big bikes with big fairings are not cool. Thus, I voted uncool. That being said, I know that some people love these bikes for touring. So to be fair, it probably deserved a "MEH", but it still got an uncool from me since I couldn't bring myself to swing to the Cool side!

This bike is crazy! It is great to see an American company continuing to develop top-notch sports bikes.
