Got some good response here, thanks. I will definitely find a Vee and a Tiger to test ride. I had not thought about the Bandit, I've ridden a few smaller displacement I4s that were tons of fun but not really touring friendly for lots of reasons, but I suppose an overgrown one would be good at low RPMs. Plus Some of them actually look like motorcycles rather than transformer movie prop rejects..
PS Any Vee or Tiger riders in Upstate SC or Western NC care to go for a ride and trade bikes for a little while?
Tiger and Bandit are not twins.
