They're smooth non-oil burning V-twins that don't puke do hickies or require milk crates for luggage. Plus they have a redundant (?) ignition system. Each cylinder has 2 plugs, 2 coils and int's own CDI so if one fails, I can still ride home on one cylinder, which I have had to do. Luckily Honda fixed that issue.

Bummer is they do have a 17" rear. I try to recycle all my old tires from the 950 to either the 640 or the front of the Transalp but rears are always bought new on the TA. Last month I broke down and bought both tires new for the TA so I'd have good skin for the winter.
