Chinese Engine

Didn't they source this engine from China? For some reason that really bugs me, but try to buy anything these days from other than China, including most everything in the Harley Boutique. I like the...

Stelvio Vibration

if it was as smooth as my 1150 Adv we got no problem here. I have a 1200 CLC that vibrates above 75 but not a big deal. I'm sure Guzzi will attempt to take the vibration out of the handlebars, or...

Stelvio Vibration

I guess it wouldn't be a deal breaker if you're just putz'in' around town, but as Ultimate Motorcycling (Feb-Mar '09) puts it: " "the Stelvio constantly attacks your hands at freeway speeds in sixth...

Stelvio cont'd

I guess it was the comparison between the Stelvio and the Benneli that talked about the vibration being bad. It's good to know that it is bearable, I wonder if this engine is like the old hard...

Stelvio Vibration

Leafman, what's up with the vibration thing on the Stelvio? Does that mean the Norge has the same problem? Bike is beyond cool but if you can't cruise between 80-90 without hands going numb that...

Stelvio

Thanks for the review on the Stelvio. Ever since I put the Stelvio on my computer's Wallpaper it's been driving me crazy wondering how it compares. (for pictures go to MSN.com, click on IMAGES and...

Scottish, but don't blame me

Well, half Scottish, anyway. Know any Ross's? I've got to blame my drinkin' on something! Hell, ain't my fault I'm half Scottish, it's as good an excuse as any!

Thumb RE: Tiger

I know they are giving the Tiger a facelift and putting a more powerful motor in it(same 3 cylinder design), somewhere around 125-130 HP, should be a scream with that much power. I've never read a...

Re: Dyno

I've seen similar dyno info and also HP ratings in the magazines. They claim mid to high 80 horsepower. So where is the gain over the 1150? I rented a 1200 last week and didn't think it ran as good...

GS or KTM

I've had a lot of GS's and still get "what the hell is that?" I think the KTM is more exclusive, won't see too many around. Of course when I pull up to all the Harleys at bike nights, I get some...

Wink FL ADV Riders Unite

OK, well I'll admit the 118 degrees in Las Vegas was too hot for my brother from San Diego, I wouldn't let weather stand in the way of a good (hard) ride. So, we'll gather in Ocala when it cools off...

Thumb RE: FL ADV Riders

Ride on! I live in South Florida and the only time I see another GS is when I visit the BMW store in Ft Lauderdale. My friends idea of a "ride" is about 4 blocks to the beach and back. I know there...
