They've all been buzz free thru the entire rpm range for many years/miles.

Have fun, Mark H.

So, what is true for 5 is true for all and makes all BS? Not getting it. Seems a manufacturer wouldn't bother if they didn't find use in it, since it does cost more.

I will not disagree with your results though for your situations. But again 5 for you makes it universally true? If that's the case I'm thinking anything more than an SR500 is a waste since I've had a couple and find them sufficient... lame (started as a typo, but made a lot of sense) logic.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
