How about make this into a weekly series where Yossef takes a different bike every week to the track and gives us his opinion. If Yossef is too busy I'll volunteer. It would be a heavy burden but somebody has to it. Yossef, great article and how about a review of the leathers that kept you safe and sound.

Wow, very nice article. There was such passion in it and for such a beautiful machine, no wonder. I felt myself worked up over it wanting to run to the store right now, credit cards in hand for one ... that's the sign of truly emotion-grabbing authorship.



I then watched the video and throughout that first lap you were moving so smoothly and everything was pieced just right. Then the last lap started and after the first set of esses you could see that you were pushing it much harder, whiping the bike around the final set, I thought you were going to crash on the set of turns right before you actually bought it. But then that big, steamy twin roared its mighty throat and shook its tail loose for the last time, all in a split second it was on its side and in the air.



Great reporting as usual, glad to see you are alright and can't wait to see what you get your hands on next. Just keep it on the rubber next time.

Yossef, as usual you give us a real impresion of what a bike does without the bull. What kind of leathers do you wear? They seem to do the right thing. Give us more!
