I used to be in the MC crowd that just didn't get the idea of a Maxi. If fact, I had a black 750cc Magna very similar to the one at the far right of this image, only with a Vetter shield. Magnas are great bikes, and excel at cruising due to their weight and power.
But the wind protection of the Forza has changed my game. I will often come to work in the cold, and be the only bike here. People will stop me and mention how bad a day it is to ride, but I stay warm and dry behind all the fairings they seem to hate.
My smile stays warm.
