Those GPTB s*****. Everyone knows that the superior people wobble around Mulholland passing SUVs and then brag about their "prowess" at the Burger Barn.

Default lighten up.

What's the actual track time difference between first and last place bikes, 2.5 seconds? That may be a stomp on the track, but for 99.99% of us it's nothing.



If people want to spend their time statistically calculating out which bike is "better", even though the difference between the "best" and "worst" is about .00001%, well then let them.



Imagine the trouble they would cause if they were govt economists instead! Hey, wait a second.....

Probably the same people who forecast what things like Medicare are going to cost 30 years down the road.

If they're busy calculating away, they're not out riding clogging up the roads with their superior bikes and skills

More room for us mere street riders to wobble our way around on our slow, overweight 2 year old bikes that couldn't possibly be any fun

Congrats on the hard work and effort it took to create this comparo. It was quite novel to include the 1000 cc Twins as most shootouts would not have thought of it.



The subscription is worth every penny just for one article of this caliber!



Keep up the good work.

Statisically speaking my calculations show that those slow, overweight bikes also include last years models as well. VWW

Fair enough Sean, at least you had the excuse of riding one-handed while you bravely staved off MY attempts to lap YOU. What exactly was that Brit wanker mate of yours doing with his other hand the whole time?

Hey, it's not actually about the superbike rankings, I ride a KLR for goodness sake. You just don't get to see fully ranked preferences too often, so it's a fun opportunity to see how voting systems affect the outcome.



Hmm... that probably didn't help my case much.
