Ah, growing up I used to drive this big'ol diesel truck with a 16000cc engine (almost 1000 with a red line of a whooping 1550 rpm...

Speaking of the RevZilla channel, and specifically their "Daily rider" series: I wonder if they would ever put a Virago through their test (maybe sans the off-road jump) and see how it stacks up against modern bikes. Sure, it doesn't have cruise control and other gadgets, but it's plenty comfy and reliable.
Keep Calm and Ride On!
