  1. I see John Howard as something like the very first XS1 Yamaha.

    A conservative design (parallel twin) brought just enough up to date to appear acceptable (overhead cam).

    Looks OK on paper but in reality is evil and unpredictable (XS1 "hinged frame" :LOL: )

    Kin Beasley would probably have to be a Harley Fat Boy. Apart from the obvious, a little slow, pretty comfortable and the same design recycled for the past few years.

  3. Tony, John Howard in his current guise is more like the 1977 XS-650. The bugs have been worked out, solid and reliable, severe vibration as an inevitable consequence of the design, and only in need of a fork brace to promote decent handling!

    I think something like the Chairman's SR500. When it moves it shakes something awful and makes a fair bit of noise.
