    the eye of the beholder. I never was very fod of the "torpedo" tank of the mid years Titans...especially that hideous pinkish K model tank. Yechhhhh. We couldn't give them away with free whiskey...and the K was a pretty good bike, all in all. If I remember correctly, that was the one that Cycle magazine did the 10,000 mile torture test on. They took a brand new Titan out of the crate and rode the bag off it for about 3 months. In the end, because they were determined to break it, they rode it down about 5 miles of railroad track ON THE TIES (sleepers). The Titan just laughed at them. Nothing broke or fell off after all the abuse and the Titan STILL started second kick every time. Quite a story to read. I wish I had a copy of the original article. Maybe someone out there still has it and could scan it so we could all read it. As far as I'm concerned, this was the ULTIMATE torture test that ANY bike was EVER submitted to. The 24 Hours of Le Mans or the Bol d'Or was/is a cakewalk compared to that test.
