Visceral comparison (highly technical)

Saturday, nice day. Good asphalt country roads. Rode three totally different bikes - Buell, Victory, KLR.

Reactions to the Buell and Vic were positive - handles great, sounds good, great brakes, good ride, big power, etc, etc.

Reaction to the KLR was immediate -- "S***. let's go somewhere!".
