New List from MCN

It's always nice to get strokes from other folks about my purchases - All three of my bikes have top marks from Motorcycle Consumer News - and NONE are crotch rockets! (which I wouldn't own/ride if I won one).

Our LT's are 4.5 (out of 5.0), and show 95.5 rear wheel HP, 75.7 ft# of RW torque; 1/4 mile 104.95/12.76; &121.6 ft 60-0 stop. The power to weight ratio is listed at 1:5.41.

Compare to the GL18 (also 4.5 of 5), at 96/104.1; 102.90/12.71; 121.1 ft (ABS) & 1:918.

Just for grins, my other rides are:

VRSCA (4.5), at 103.2/72.0; 119.07/11.38; 127.9 ft; & 1:6.00
Valkyrie(4.5), at 100.0/102.3; 110.7/12.02; 107.4 ft; & 1:7.21

More than you wanted to know, right???

You are obviously a conneisure of fine motorcycles. We're very proud of you.

But you really should check out a crotch rocket sometime...
