Yeah whatever...



Can someone tell me how CycleWorld has a comparo with the new Buell already... and MO didn't even know there was such a thing until it popped up on the website?



Considering the timeline... CW had to have the bike before it was intro'd on the web on July 23rd.



What happened to that print media lag we read about?



Looks like you boys got smoked.

Because the CycleWorld article is obviously a marketing piece. CW gets the "exclusive on the hot new Buell" and Buell extends their advertising for the next couple years. Think about it. The Ulysses was just announced and CW already had a fully produced article. Seriously, with Eric Buell in the test ride, did you think a single bad word would be written about the new machine? If you want the "news" first get CycleWorld. If you want unbiased reviews go elsewhere. The whole thing pisses me off.



Anywayz back to topic, Biaggi will be fine. I could see him going to Ducati. I always thought Rossi would go back to Ducati, but if they make the GP Duc into a production machine maybe they'll race it in WSB?

Default New Young Guns on the way

I think they are making room for the next generation of riders.... Think there will be some 250 cc riders moving up like Daniel Pedrosa, Sebastian Porto, Randy De Puniet, etc...

Uh...there was a press intro that every US print mag was at, including several small-timers. CW got no such exclusive...look at the pic in the mag - you can see Alan Cathcart's helmet, and a few recognizable faces.



Hell, I read an online review of it on some forum site weeks ago. Where was MO? Dunno...

Pedrosa and Nicky are going to be the Repsol goto guys. Repsol and Movistar are about to announce a 4 bike team so it doesn't conflict with Sete's contract. Next year will be quite interesting for sure.

Hopkins made the observation that the reason for the change to 800cc is to make the Moto bikes easier for the Italian and Spanish riders. Pedrosa apparently is a little-bitty guy.Hopper also also pronounced Biaggi a d-i-c-k.
