Default Testing???

Everybody must be out doing the next big time test. Or they are out joyriding, however you'd like to look at it. Is there anybody at home here? Hello? Hello?

Default RELAX!

Good Googly Moogly, ya'all are in quite the uproar over site updates. Several of you have mentioned, how you get much quicker news reporting from several other "News" sites. That is exactly what I do too. Motorcycle.com is not a "News" site, it is a motorcycle online comunity, that happens to also offer news. The sites that I frequently visit for news (Roadracing World, AMA Superbike, Cycle News) do not offer the sort of interactive feedback that Motorcycle Online does. MO has (as far as I can tell) a staff of three. What if one of those three crashed Sunday morning on a shoutout test ride? Would you expect the other two to immediately rush back to MO so that they could get Sunday's results posted? I sincerely hope that they are fine and that nobody actually crashed. I am sure that there is a good reason for them not posting anything since Saturday. Why don't we give them a chance to explain, before we start a vicious bltch session about them?

Don't forget 2wf.com. They did the most entertaining car versus bike comparo I've ever seen. Check the picture at the end of the story. They removed the car door so they could hang out and try to get a knee down

Let me get my laytex gloves, I'll be right over.



We got ripped off? Umm... we're still sitting here having a discussion on this site, right? How much NEW content have you seen from your magazine subscriptions in the past THREE DAYS?!?!?! Give me a break, get a life, ride a motorcycle, blow a goat, or do whatever else it is that you do for fun. If 72 Hours without a new test or news posting is causing you to feel "Ripped Off" perhaps you might want to try a perscription for Paxil, instead of a subscription for motorcycle.com.

Jeez, I wonder how many people will be capable of using this information to find the race results from Sunday. :^0
