Definitely gotta vote for the one I would flog... that 7/10 would get me a felony... or a toe tag. Either way it would be more fun than you will ever have with your pants on. Something about engine swaps just makes me feel tickled with desire to do dirty things on two wheels. Honestly if I had that bike for an afternoon I would instigate a police pursuit for fun. Purely for fun. Bring out the helicopter, I dare you. :fu:

i was torn between the 1200 monster ace, the boxer, and the bastard busa.

i am admittedly biased towards boost when voting for a fighter. i went with the boxer.

This makes me sooo happy.

Awesome bikes. Really enjoyed reviewing this years badasses.

I appreciate the detail of cabbies, the power of the busa, the aggression of the 7/10, but in the end, I went with the TL. Hooligan as shit. Imagine blasting with that beast twin through a tunnel...
