I don't know about the rest of you, but I think that it's a bad idea to put brand-new or unreleased models for a "Significant" list. These new or unreleased bikes may turn out to be complete flops, and therefore "unsignificant". Just remember the Sinclair C5, and you'll know what I'm talking about.

It's incredible that the author neglected the Harley K model, turned Sportster, or the 1940 Indian Chief with skirted fenders, or the Flying Merkel with a swing arm, and plunger fork. This is a typical MSN revisionist's list made by a young boy posing as a writer. Across the board; MSN is most pathetic word factory in the modern world of journalism. Not to mention they are biased, prejudiced, and agenda driven.

I like my 1971 Norton Commando Roadster.

Not real sure who writes these articles... but they know very little about bikes.  Where is the 1947 Indian Chief or one of the early Indian Scouts... I mean c'mon guys!  I would also have included 1964 HD Pan Head Electra Glide

What about the Honda 50 and S90 of the 60's, They got a whole gen hooked on two wheels.

Does anyone remember the Triumph Trident or the BSA Rocket 3 bikes from the late 60s-early 70s?  Pretty cool three-cylinder four-stroke British bikes, along with the Norton Commando someone already mentioned..  I have not had a lot of motorcycles over the years, but I started out with a '68 Bridgestone 175.  Yes, the tire manufacturer used to build motorcycles.  Two-stroke and smoked like a freight train, but had an overdrive gear and would go over 80 mph, not too bad for a 175.  Years later, I bought a Honda 450 that had been chopped, custom paint job, racing rebuild on the engine, light, and incredibly fast..  I now have a '78 Harley Davidson FXE Super Glide in very good shape with original red paint and 18K original miles.  I'm trying to sell it because I'm getting too old for the vibration from an old shovelhead and would like something newer and more comfortable.
