Just got my latest Motorcyclist. Best Touring Bike-BMW K1600GT...that was expected, again. But, Alternative Take-Yamaha FJR1300...we were robbed! Again!

Not really. Just, here's our pick for Best Touring Bike and here's our Alternative Take.

There's a blog already on this, search 'Cycle World Comparison' in this Forum.  The decision doesn't fit with the comments of the testers. The TTSE was better at all the important things, just didn't have the BMW badge. 
Always ride in control.

I was thinking of the Cycle World review when I said "again". I'm thinking the Trophy is not getting the respect it deserves from the magazines. But that's OK, we know better.

Lazy journalism, me thinks.
