Dang. ^ Those are pretty bikes.

Today, it's 40F and rainy. I'd like an ST1300 on a day like today.

I hear you. I can't wait to ride one and see what it's all about with my own seat-o-thepants meter.

2100 cc that runs in a 3000 cc fuel class and only makes 160 hp. Ho Hum......

I have a good friend who has a 1954 1600 cc Vincent in the 1600 cc bare bike fuel class who holds a 2 way Bonneville record of 215 mph with it, and he did it 30 years ago.

Needless to say, I'm not impressed.

So then, I guess it's safe to say this isn't the bike you want today??

OH SHADDAP the lot of you!

I know I keep posting the V7 classic, Griso and stoopid scooters
all the time, but today I saw this lovely FZ1n, yellow, nice MRA
windscreen, small topcase.. and you NEED the ability to loft the
front wheel off the ground in third from time to time, right?!

It's a rhetorical, of course I'm right!

I don't see what is dull about a 490 lb. bike making 160 foot pounds of torque. Sounds like a guaranteed recipe for fun. And I'm guessing the Combat has enough character to make spec sheet comparisons a moot point.
