test ride of tiger, explorer, cross tourer and v-strom today

Just a quickie on the Stelvio. It's a supremely all day long comfortable bike, highly spec'd with bradded brake lines, bembro brakes, premium suspension and it's got a very characterful engine but I owned one NTX version of the Stelvio for 12 months and the thing literally shook itself to bits.

I think the Crossdresser owners are getting a little bit excited and offensive. People are entitled to their opinion without someone saying you are talking shit.

Anyone in this thread used this site before? http://www.thevisualiser.net/ Like has been said before about pissing contest, I'm not in any way competing in who's bike is better here, I was just intrigued by one persons opinion of how one bike can do something the other bike simply cannot which is c...
