That is a good read but he got his figures wrong to start with stating it was a 2059cc or something... I still admire the V-Max. Was too scared to buy it all those years ago... never test rode it, just gawked! Seems a bit silly now I have the Rocket.
Here's another older one from motorcycle cruiser. It really pissed me off. They don't really spend much time talking about the Rocket even though it's on the top of the lists for performance in every category. Then to see who they picked as the winner. I think they did pick the Rocket for bike of the year though........?
