The website is great! Where else can you go where they let you rant and rave? So it is not the fastest, but they sure get some real goodies for us, as for the ones who don't like getting their profanity edited, that's too bad, if you can not express your self without the curse words then maybe we don't want to hear your crap!!!

Last but not least: Quit crying about your $11. If you can not afford that, then quit the site and shut up.

Default Why don't you give us a break and shut the #*@% up!

Gemini, I'll give you my pay pal account number and send you $11.94 to go away and spare us your pathetic whining! I'm convinced that to paraphrase Samson Pipes' slogan, "Message Boards Save Lives". In the old days, burnt out miserable old losers like you would come home from work, kick their dog and beat their wife. Now they log onto MO and flog the staff for not getting their piddling $1 per month's worth. So tell me Gemini, when you go to Starbucks do you rip into the teenage girl behind the counter about your decaf, half-skim, half half&half, mocha frappucino latte not having thick enough foam on top and being a rip off at $5 a cup? Ummm, OK maybe that's a bad example! Be that as it may, if you can find a free site with the level of community, multimedia, DIY attitude, and speed to print of MO then go there. I'm sure everyone there will start flocking to MO shortly after your arrival.

To those of you complaining out there about content on this site and how "glacial" it is concerning updates, it's obvious you've never been a writer or journalist of any kind or else you would know how difficult and time consuming it is to go out there, get stories, research them and write about something that doesn't come off the AP news wire.

I'm not an apologist, but rather someone who has a little experience with this kind of stuff.

Admittedly, I'm just a little bit curious. Why are all of the sportbike manufacturers making such a big deal about the way they are designing their frames to be more flexible? Harley has been making frames that bend and flex for 100 years...

Default why don't you give the staff a break

Working for a monthly publication with monthly deadlines has its pressure



But having to post new columns and news that are relevant only to motorcycles on the web daily would be like running a newspaper that is limited to one subject



The worst of all would be having to put up with readers reviews/critiques Â…





Cuddles to the staff of MO

Default Re: Weak!

You could have saved us all some time and replaced all that text with a link to Honda's website. They do a much more thorough job of spouting of the marketing specs.



Also I read the same story about 10 days ago on motorcycledaily.com (free) - except they actually RODE the bike.



You guys need to do better than this. Seriously...

Default Rear Shock Mount

Evidently it works; however, from the drawings itÂ’s hard to see how one gets much travel when the shock is mounted to the top of the swingarm.



From a purely aesthetic (poser) point of view-- wish they would have thrown on the five spoke wheels as well, maybe with that cool color band!
