How about a Superhawk that gets decent mileage + decent tank size.

3 pounds lighter and 3 more horsepower with Bold New Graphics! How many times has that one gone round?

A friend of mine's son bought a new R6 last year. I took a ride on it a couple of months ago. I can see the attraction of such bikes and they are certainly technological masterpieces. They are also atrociously uncomfortable and after an hour's ride on our rough mountain roads and you are half beaten to death by the stiff suspension.



I'm glad people like them but I'll take Bonnie or an R1150R over one of the Superports any day of the week.

Default Obsolescence rears its head again Â… like it does every year.

Sorry Mr. 2006 CBR600RR owner, your bike is no longer the fastest 600 Honda. You still need to continue making payments on it though.



Not to worry, the smart-alec who buys the 2007 model will find his bike obsolete the same time next year. He too will have to continue making payments.

I did 200 miles on a 2005 model as the owner broke his ankle and asked me to ride it home. Comfortable it certainly wasnÂ’t, and I made more gear changes that day than I make in a years riding. I normally do 200-300 miles in one sitting when I ride, but that day I was begging for it to be over.



I always laugh when folks say sports bikes "handle" well. Dealing with an almost persistent headshake on road imperfections is not my idea of a bike that handles.
