You might just as soon eat a bullet as try that! Don't forget to tell her what a BARGIAN it was at 10K either.

You honestly think Mrs Paul would ever get on the back of a motorcycle which KPaul was piloting?

Fair enough, but you should make that point in the story. The article leads one to believe you changed tires first thing in the morning on day 2.



Considering that all of the coments on the ZX-10 were said of the R1 and the GSXR1000 when they were first intro'd a few years ago, do we get another review of the ZX-10 when you learn to ride it?

If anyone needs a couple of beers it's a guy that's just broken his hand and scared himself silly in an "unplanned" get off. If Sean didn't drink any beer, then I am even more impressed. VWW

Brickl, some aspects of motorcycling can be unpleasant. The fact that bad things can, and do happen to riders that we respect is something that shouldn't be redacted to present a false image of reality.



I for one respect the staff at MO for sharing this negative aspect of our sport with us. It serves to both educate, and warn us of the dangers that are inherent to the sport that we all love.



If you find reality unsettling, then I would suggest that you stick to what ever "print mags" or other fairy tales that you prefer. VWW

Judging from Sean's lap times he has a pretty fair handle on how to ride the Kawasaki. My guess is he is a more competent, and a faster rider, even with a broken hand than you probably ever will be without one. All of the other testers mentioned the head shake on the ZX-10. What exactly are your credentials that you feel comfortable impugning their observations? VWW

It's always easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission

How about reading comprehension skills. I'll be danged if I take lip of a some krout lover.



Read the article. The bike scared them. It scared them just like the GSXR-1000 did.



This is a website that's made it's living by giving the love to the baddest of the bad. Now the baddest of the bad has turned green, and so has the website.

Default A MO First!!!

I believe this is the first time an Aprilia Mille has not won a multibike shootout that it was involved in.



Don't rean anything into it boys. We all know how much MO loves Aprilia. I'm just pointing out that something finally beat the Mille. Well.. A few somethings.
