Check out the sport-touring section under sportbikes in communities, things seem a little harder to find seeing as how all the original SBW forums are under the sportbike communities and those covered a broad area as it was,

I think the touring forum is more intended for old people to talk about how many stuffed animals they have on there 'wing or the coolest new trike conversion kit,

funny thing about the dudes with the teddy bears and crap on there bikes is one of 'em gave me the finger when I passed him lanesplitting in traffic, then he tried to race me, I was on the ex250 at the time so it was pretty amusing. And just about every time I pass a touring rig on the highway they give me a dirty look even though I slow down a little to make it seem as if I am only goin a bit faster than they are.

Aside from the Harley rider who decided I was waiting too long for traffic to clear at the 54th Ave and I-275 exit ramp, goosed those straight pipes a couple of times and SQUEEZED by on the curb only to be side swiped by a car:twofinger and then got pissed when I told the cop what happened (Lucky he had hard bags because that is what took th impact instead of his leg)
I have never had a Touring, Sport touring, Sport, Dirt, Dual sport or Moped rider get mad or flip me off. Never.
Of course I've had some bicyclists up in Pasco county real mad but they were doing what......5 or 10 mph and spread out across the whole freaking lane on the other side of the blind corner and I entered at 45 or so. Picture a black lab bursting through a group of ducks :eek:

Daaaamn,
This thread is HOT! A page and a half in 2 years.

I think sport touring is when you ride a bike that is faster than a hardley and it has a tank bag or tail bag on it.

First post of 2005! This thread is getting real interesting. :D
I'm calling for all sport tourers to post pics in their galleries. A pic is worth a thousand words you know. If that's the case then a pic should also be worth about 100 posts.
