More grunt than a whole sty of pigs

Advantages: Big, comfortable, everything you'd expect
Disadvantages: Heavy, expensive, needs a different riding style

There's nothing that reflects a countries character more than a motorcycle, or indeed encourages national stereotyping. Italian bikes generally look exquisite, handle magnificently but their electrics all go to pigs and whistles when it rains The J ...

BLACK RIDER

BMW RT1100 v RT1150

Advantages: handling, performance, functionality
