Real world comparison

Thanks CY,
yes my reasoning and approach is this:

I have two bikes,

78 RT and 93 GSPD.

They both have been across country a few times and I can tell you that my

RT with points has;
always starts,
weak battery strong battery starts immediately,
21 degrees out or 88 degrees out starts immediately,
always immedeatly when you hit the button,
rarely been adjusted.

My PD has, often had ignition issues,
often not started,
often cold start issues,
if near freezing forget it,
if bike and battery sits 2 months forget it,

I could go on and on.

So I do not mean to open the debate here but rather, I have experimented with 2 bikes side by side for quite a while and I just want points.
