I do not quite agree with his top 5 list mine would be
ctx red, ctx blue, ctx black, ctx white, then anything else.
But seriously good review overall but not sure if some of the more off road type bike is what I want on a long ride. And would prefer the bmw1200 over the 800.

I can't see comparing the H/D Road King to the Triumph Bonneville??? Glad to see the CTX on the List!

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.
Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.
And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.

I'm raising my resale price.

Oh, wait, I won't ever sell.

Didja see the pic for the 1290 Super Duke G? I must have misunderstood the definition of touring. Better jack up my front end for the next long ride.

I like the diversity of the list. Not just defaulting to every brands most expensive bike in that segment.

A 2017 article that refers to a one year 2014 motorcycle

I think this "moto-journalist" should get out more often
