Kudos! That's what we need: informed opinions plus the information and experience that lead to them!

More expansive direct quotes from your racers would be a plus.

This is what I am looking for in an article comparing similar motorcycles. Good insights, stats, some opinion. Much better than Burns first article on the twins. He was tired and it showed. This one brings redemption. Keep up the good work!

Awesome article! I really enjoy how you guys time laps of riders of different abilities - it reflects well on the riding population at large and I think is a very fair idea of how "rideable" a bike is.



I'm curious, how would identically prepared (same tires) open-class bikes perform on both tracks? I'm really curious to see how much faster or slower the best street twins are from the best open-class bikes (and 600s for that matter). How about it MO?

Default Suzuki vs Aprilia

Now that you have winners in the 2 and 4 cylinder classes, would it be too much to compare the two? Diggin it anway!

Default Two requests:

More photos...





Some videos...





Please, give us something for the spank-bank, so we can at least vicariously sample these bikes.

That was a good review of some of the nicest machines around. But I would also like to see a review of the next step down, the Ducati 900SS versus the Honda VTR, the XB9R, the Aprilia Falco, and whatever other twin of about the same displacement.

I'm with Vlad, and if the XB9R isn't put up against the 900SS I'll have to write something that will end up being a bunch of asterisks once posted. And if you guys give the excuse of "we couldn't get one in time" I'm calling shenanigans.



And that article was awesome, the content of these articles has improved 10 fold lately and it's apparent to me you guys are much more financially savvy. Going to track days instead of renting the entire track, going to grudge night at the local drag strip (I've got to find that equivilent around here and stomp some pimped-out civics) and other such things are all proof that our subscription fee is being properly spent. Keep it up.
