May 2006 Cycle world

Anybody seen the new Cycle World mag. It has a rebuttal in it (letter to editor)about the Lap of Luxury article between an LT , GL1800 and a Harley super special Ultra. Written by the forms own David Shealey. Thanks Dave for a well written reply to their IMHO misguided rankings.

Yep, read the article. Since I am on '03 owner I have no idea what the '05 is like. But I know that Dave knows his stuff.

Thanks Dave for the article.

Wow! I have not gotten mine in the mail yet. Surprised that the response I made on their web page made it into print!

I do think it was the best Luxury Touring comparo any motorcycle magazine has ever done. At least they did a LONG test, in many conditions, so it was "real world" for this type of bike.

If Andy Warhol was right, and everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes, I still have 14 minutes and 55 seconds to go!

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
