Right on, remember the zx6 that finished last at the track in every test I've read. 2001 ama 600 supersport champ.. and world supersport champ

Did you see the Motorcyclists with the sport touring vs. sport bike test? I believe Burns actually went quicker at the track on the ST4S than on the 996. The printed times of the three testers indicate the thing we all know but hate to admit: the right rider is more important than the right machine once you reach a certain level of performance.



It is entirely possible I would be faster on an R1 than on ZX9. I would still be slower than Rossi on his Aprilia pit scooter.

Re: bikes left out in comparisons
 
I was wondering the same thing about the Daytona and why it didn't fit in this "Open Class Shootout".



Looking at the specs we see the Daytona is very comparable to the other bikes listed (esp the CBR). 955cc, 79X65mm bore/stroke, 12.0:1 Compression Ratio, etc. Even the bike size/weight is similar (wheel base 1417mm and seat height 815mm 209kg wet weight).

I'm with you on this one. $12 isn't a whole lot of cash, and for the sheer entertainment of some of the articles, the site is probably worth it. Its the fact that we as subscribers were promised faster connections, fewer adds, and a discount at Comp Accessories. None of that has happened.



As for the cost of running a web site, I run (and manage) my own, and admittedly I do it for the fun of doing it and not for money (I have a day job as it were). Comparatively speaking, if you have the technical knowledge (and here I refer to html/asp/php/cfm/etc skills not hardware) it costs less than $50 a month to run a site such as this one.

I think it won our 600 shootout, too. In fact, yes, it did.
