Friendship is all well and good and everything, but a bikes a bike, and you can't put your friendship ahead of a sweet set of wheels.  Lol

This one is totally not fair!  Two of my favorite bikes head to head.  I voted Thruxton.  The GS series have always had my attention, but I'm really into the cafe racer thing right now.

Tough draw for the Thruxton, head to head with one of the best bikes in the world.  Or at least one of the best bikes in the world for people taller than me.

I'll be right back, I have to go register over at adv.rider and bring all my new friends back to pack the vote for the GS.   Lol

I keed, I keed.

The Thruxton has its quirky throwback charm, but I'll take my heated grips, ABS, Paravlever and Telever suspension and that sweet flat twin, thankyouverymuch.   Cool
