Well, after reading the confused flurry of bizarre and senseless comments on the article page, I think I'll stop my periodic bitching about Stromtropper posting rules.

Hey! The 'Strom is in some pretty mediocre company, except for the Ducati, Aprillia and Yamaha.

Sent from my Hewlett-Packard 75C, using the Flying Merkel motorcycle app.

This is pretty much a no-brainer for the people who know about bikes. Surprised the Versys and Ninja 650 didn't make the list too. I think the Strom would be in the top three.

At least three of those bikes should have been replaced by the Kawasaki Ninja 650, Z1000, and the Triumph Street Triple...

Since the new Versys got mentioned, One of the guys up the hill got a yellow/black 650 Versys. Looks very nice and he claims he got it for a low OTD price...Happy man.
