    Pros: Comfort. Styling. Reliability. Power. Price. Warranty.
    Cons: Gear whine. Rear shock. No ABS brake. Cassette player.

    Summary: Bought my 2002 new Midnight in November 2002 for $13,900 out the door. Now have 15,000 miles on it. Without a doubt, the bike is a keeper! Plenty of power at 98hp, very comfortable and styling that turns heads everywhere I go. The bike has a whine ... read more

    Pros: Looks, Price, Comfort, Shifting, Brakes, Power, Easy to ride.
    Cons: No tac, No center stand, gear wine, high windshield, no sixth gear.

    Summary: I bought this bike after a lot of reading and talking to people and reading many reviews. It was time to replace my 1985 gold wing. This bike has great balance it is not top heavy as some have stated they should ride a 1200 gold wing. In fact as you ride ... read more

    Pros: Looks, features, and comfort that cannot be matched by many other motorcycles at any price
    Cons: This bike is top heavy and is a bear to back into a parking spot

    Summary: Love the styling.  Looks great, is the most comfortable bike I have ever had.  Even Harley owners are impressed by the look and all of the standard features.  Would have to spend thousands extra to equip a Road King to match the standard ... read more

    Pros: Very smooth and powerfull engine, comes standard with all the toys, classic styling looks good.
    Cons: Comes standard with antique cassette player.

    Pros: comfortable, big, powerful, a true King of the Road
    Cons: no CD player, bit heavy.

    Summary: If you are looking for a stylish comfortable and reliable tourer, you have to look into this bike. A comfy, fast and very reliable bike, 5 years of unlimited warranty says it all. There is not much choice if you are looking to go touring with a ... read more

    Pros: style, value for the money, dependability, comfort, options
    Cons: only one little tail light.

    Summary: Everyone always seems to buy black motorcycles. I always think it's because they all want to grow a beard, moustache, and wear black grubby clothes and turn from Mr. Office Worker to "bad dude" on the weekend. I always wonder if these people need a ... read more

    Pros: Comfort, Price, Power, Stock Accessories, Size, Storage Space, Looks!
    Cons: A bit top heavy, Lack of Rear Lighting

    Summary: I had ridden a Vulcan 1500 Classic for six years and was ready to "move up". But there aren't many bikes that are a step up from Kawasaki's big Vulcan - at least not at an "affordable" price. I wanted something that was BIG (to accommodate my big ... read more

    Pros: Outstanding cruiser, comfort, a real looker on the street!
    Cons: Just a step behind the Honda Gold Wing in power.
