I live in West By God Virginia. The bridges here are even curved. I think the longest straight stretch in the state is 3/4 of a mile...



I wonder... is it a breech of protocol to call it the 636? I know that zx-6r is the prefered nomenclature... but 636 sounds better to me... plus... the Dragon has 318 curves... making the 636... The Double Dragon!



HA!

Honda was smart enough not to time any laps. Posting times tends to encourage bike damage when the Journalists GP starts. So... they try to keep the competitve quotient to a minimum at Press Intros. (sometimes it works....sometimes it doesn't -Sean

"117 AT THE TIRE"



You giggled like a little girl when you wrote that didn't you. Don't lie.



It's ok. I've read 19 times since you wrote it and I still have the sh$t-eatin' grin on my face.

If there were indeed only quantitative nits to pick, it might be of interest to the owner of and 04 who was comtemplating an upgrade. VWW

Lighter, with more power, better handling and better tires. If pure performance is your thing and Honda is your brand, then yes the 2005 is a worthy upgrade from the 03/04 model. -Sean

Unfortunatly for me Sean I probably wouldn't be any faster on the new 05 600 than the old 600 Huricane. VWW

Default +9 hp?

When is the last time a manufacturer claimed an increase like that in the ol' 600 class? They had better post great numbers! Did it really feel like 9 hp?
