H C Edwards Posted October 31, 2007 Share Posted October 31, 2007 I got the December issue of Rider today in the mail. Cover story was a comparison between the K1200GT, ST1300, Concours14, and FJR1300. Order of finish: 1. ST1300 2. FJR 3. Connie14 4. K1200GT As the article said, "no losers here". I don't want to start a debate...just thought those who don't subscribe but like reading articles about sport tourers might want to pick up a copy. I wish they had included the Triummph Sprint and Ducati ST3. The issue also reviewed the new Versys, then did a comparison between the Versys and Wee Strom. Their verdict - Versys better if emphasis is on handling, Wee if emphasis is on long distance comfort. I took a short ride on a Wee last spring, and was very impressed. I've only sat on the Versys, but also impressive. They had a short article on the new Triumph Rocket III touring bike. No connection to Rider - just a fairly recent subscriber. But they seem to have a knack for testing and reporting on bikes that interest me. I just wish the magazine was as thick as the leading monthly. I've been riding BMW for over 25 years, but I recently bought a 2006 Bonneville, and it's a blast to ride. It's got me thinking of replacing some of the BMW stable and trying other brands.
