Default Give my regards to your Guest Writer

Thanks for the tease. Mladin says the Duc 999 is perhaps the equal of the GSXR1000 but Bostrom says the Honda is great. This is going to be an interesting year in AMA. Can't wait for the shoot out. My crazy Irish inlaws are coming for Christmas so the shoot out will be my Great Escape, Thanks Sean

Kudos to MO for getting in on the Honda intro, even if it is through the back door.



As for the bike itself, every part of me wants it to be the worst of the liter-bikes. Just like the 600RR, it's the fattest pig in the class (relatively speaking). Just like most Hondas, the styling is, well, Honda-esque ... middle-of-the-road and not exactly lustworthy. But I'll be damned if seeing the 1000 at the Dallas Motorcycle Show didn't convince me that (alas) I think it is the best looking of the bunch. And the Daytona tests suggest it's no slouch on the track (surprise, surprise). Thanks Honda. I need the temptation to drop another $10k+ like I need another stripper girlfriend with three kids and a nasty coke habit.

Great! If I spend a few Hundred Grand I can have a motorcycle that will run 192MPH at Daytona! The Honda was apparently designed partially to clean up in AMA Superbike (with results at other than Daytona undetermined) at the expense of street optimization... Wait a minute... I ride on the street... and don't have an extra big part of a million laying around... The ZX-10R still sounds like the hot ticket to me. By the way, I don't think that there is any way that comparo is on the new Liter-bikes, they haven't hit the streets yet that I know of.
