The Long Haul Trucker has a long reputation as one of the best touring bikes. A devoted crowd of die hard followers only know the Long Haul Trucker as the bike of their choice. Now the Disc Trucker has the same fans plus some more. The same bike with stronger and better brakes? You can say that, but of course you need to mention also the weight issue: disc brakes are usually heavier than rim brakes. But they brake better! Hm, think again.
