Camera used?
I'd like to know what camera MO is using for their pictures? Canon G2?

Don't be a cheap bastard! It only costs $0.03 a day, $0.21 a week!!!

Great article, I wish people here would learn to drive like the europeans.

For all the cheap skates who keep crying about the price of subscription, it is only $0.03 a day!

Re: Great article, but this SUCKS!
Ken, Led Zepplin goes over pertty good at my house. I was serious about the offer. When the weather gets above zero here, we can go for a spin and you can see if speed is all that.

Re: Great article, but this SUCKS!
Thanks! Actually, my penchant for Zeppelin began at an early age when my father bought Zeppelin 4 on 8 track! There's nothing quite like doing your math homework to Black Dog...tapping your pencil to Bonham's drums and your pre-pubescent voice wailing like Plant. Ahh, memories.

The sincerity of your invite is truly appreciated. I'll send you an email off this board when I can snag a weekend to burst down your way.

Anyone ever hear a TL1000 with some aftermarket exhaust, like yosh's...... wow this could be a fun bike.. It will scare the leather fringe right off a harley riders forearms.

Fly by them with Yosh's on a twin at 9,000 RPM , yeehaa.

Re: 2003 SV 1000S First Ride!
Its funny, but you see these cruiser-types with open-pipes running around, and while it's annoying, people seem to accept it. But God forbid a guy on a sport-bike has a "loud" muffler on his bike... much less a guy like me with a 2-stroke shrieking along, which, while it can be piercing close up, doesn't carry nearly as far as open-pipes on a 4-stroke.

I doubt I'll ever own a twin like this 'zook (not for lack of wanting one though), but it sure would be funny as hell to run one with NO cans on it just to see what it'd do. I'm sure it'd run like crap, unless the FI can deal with the sudden change in backpressure... but I just wonder what it'd sound like... and how would those cruiser-guys react!... would people all the sudden accept it b/c of the 'open pipe sound'.

I read that MotoGP has a new 130db sound limit... and a lot of teams are probably going to run muffler-less. WooHoo!!! Sound finally returns to GP's!!

It's my personal Sony F 707 Same camera for the stills and the video clips.

Hey Sean
Is it just me or has anyone else told you that when you click on the SV1000 story on the MO home page it takes you to the CBR600RR story? I had to access it through the link on "news". I would have emailed you to let ya know without putting it in the forum, but "emailMo" talks about sending it to Blip, heck by the time it got back to you through all those channels it could have been fixed.
