Yeah, I agree. Where is that 600 test! Pity that they missed out testing on the crappy Sears Point that has so many lovely life threatening concrete barriers. Now where is that 600 supersport test!!!!

They didn't get to the dragstrip yet, so don't expect it until at least mid-week, I would guess.

Rob -



Thanks. It is true that we didn't make it to the strip since, well, there's this white stuff all over the place. And, no, we weren't just in Robert Downey Jr.'s hotel room...

Hey MiniMe, how come you guys won't let us have what you have? Hell, it's better to get small titbits every few days rather than LOTS of info all at one go.



Have you guys atleast decided on the over all ranking? And, oh, BTW, with talk of Triumph finally having resolved the fuel injection problems with the TT600, it would have been VERY nice if you guys had included it. Come to think of it, I don't recall anyone saying it wasn't. So was it?



And also, you should review the Mach 3 video from Fast Bikes Magazine. I am so keen that you do this that I am willing to buy you guys a copy. you want to take me up on it?

From everything I've read the TT has only slightly improved bottom end response - still nothing below 4000 - at the expense of the top end. Basically it's a really nice frame and brakes (with godawful styling) and a crap engine. Total package is still 10% behind the jap bikes.

As most of the tracks in AMA Superbike racing do, this track sucks!



What a bunch of bozo's!

"From everything I've read "



that is exactly why I want to hear what MO would think after a fair trial.

I agree, I've been waiting in anticipation for the 600 shootout. What's up? When can we expect to see it? P.S. - yoshimura sounds awesume on my R6.
