Actually one of the lesser glowing reviews i've seen. They did pick the Tbird as the best of the 4, but it wasn't the kind of review that leaves you feeling it's as great a bike as the other reviews i've seen. Also, they said it's more powerful than the rest, but imagine if they had reviewed the 1700 instead of the 1600 ! They also pointed out the peg clearance, and i agree this is the bike's Achilles heel. It's the price you pay to have a otherwise incredible handling bike that also feels 200 Lbs lighter than it is tho. Worth the trade-off. You can't have everything, even with the great Tbird. But you can have 99% of it.
