The only number that matters to me in motorcycling is the one I see on my odometer. Pretty much any other numbers or comparisons, while fun to read and think about, are not so meaningful. But compare away, who cares. Last time I checked though, no motorcycle writer had figured out a way to tell me what bike I was going to like the best. I had to get out there and ride them myself and figure it out - and that was way more fun than reading comparisons.
