Default Wow!

What a difference.



I'd rate Part One a 4, on a scale of 1 - 10.



Part Two is a 9.2573 easy.

Default Re: Two requests:

I'll second that request. Since many of us don't have the cash to throw down on one of these beauties, you guys can at least let us share the thrills through pic and videos!



Excellent review. Keep 'em coming.

Sorry. I don't mean to seem like a jerk, but ...

I am seriously debating between the RC-51 and a standard Mille for a next bike, so that is what I was hopeing to see compared here (apples-to-apples). I can't afford an RC-51 plus Ohlins forks and shock plus Oz wheels, which adds up to more than the standard Mille. What the dealers typically permit for test drives (time/distance) just doesn't hack it.

Oh well; maybe your suggestion of RC-51 plus rear shock is the way to go.

Default random stuff

Nice review -- especially the street stuff.



I agree on the request to test a second tier, but I disagree on the makeup. Get a collection of bikes whose clear purpose is the street/canyon strafing. I maybe crazy, but my current list of bikes I would consider to replace my current ride are the XB9R, the FZ-1, the Falco, maybe a super chicken, maybe a Bandit 1200S and a R1150R (not an S -- too expensive). Maybe even a 900ss. Some of these are definitely more all around than others, but they are clearly differentiated from the race rep crowd, something that doesn't interest me. Review them based on handling prowess on your favorite roads, rideability when you have to hit the superslab, or get stuck in traffic, and how well they take soft luggage. I recently test road the XB9r and came away quite impressed, but I have doubts on how it would handle my demands for an all around ride. Are the others better?



Unrelated question. So... what happened to the fearless founder, i.e. why no Blip on the radar screen? (sorry about that -- I couldn't help myself)

Excellent article. I wish I could be as enthusiastic about my job.



It is obvious you guys had a great time on these bikes and you approve of all of them. However, what do you guys choose to ride when you don't have these superbikes around? What are in your garages at home?

Wow what a difference between the first and second article. Now that is the JB that we know and love. Excellent article with great content. As a reader stated before, an easy 9.5.

Default Come on guys

Everything was fine but you still couldn't get any type of weight measurement device? Come on that would complete the spec list!



Did I say "great article" already? Well it is. Thanks for that.
