Geeze -- there goes any chance of a MO test of the Alligator. Probably just as well -- can you imagine what a $40,000 motorcycle with a 650 single would do to KPauls Price/Performance ratio!



I DO hope that the said Buell was not flung by JB, Sean or any of the other MO staffers.

Default The world's most successful motojournalist

Don't know that he is the most successful (depends, I guess, on one's definition of "success"), but he sure as hell is the most prolific -- seems like he writes for every European cycle magazine printed.

Too many cops and too many squids. Two good reasons to avoid the Ortega Hwy.

Best wishes on a speedy recovery Sir Alan. I also hope the Buell rider is relatively OK too as I hate to see anyone get hurt.



God speed and take care,

Dave

Wasn't me, and I saw JohnnyB ride the MO Buell to work today, so I guess at least MO's nose is clean on this one.

Serves him right for testing that piece of crap. If Gurney hadn't have produced the thing, I don't think anyone would have rushed to test it. What an ego, painting the bike like his boring glory days Eagle. Looks pretty drab in 2002.



If anyone spends $30-40,000 for a bent Honda XR with an ear-splitter exhaust, he deserves to have it thrown down the highway. Sorry Perry but you have more money than brains. Alan, get well soon. At least you wrecked on a bike that put your butt close to the ground.

Does your Ninja burn oil and has candy valves like 99.9% of them did?
