Do I detect the emergence of a newer, meaner Pete?



If I had even the smallest contribution to this I am so...... proud.

How a self-respecting member of the GPTB could let his kid ride rice is beyond me.

Make sure Sean is wearing those new leathers with the 90-degree bends locked in.

Actually Kemosabe I've been a cynical, snide, skinny lil' bastard most of my life. I've just suppressed it over the past several years. When the right ingredients present themselves though, I have the occasional flare up.

No, I think the radial mounting is purely for the "trick" factor. However, the radial-pump Brembo master cylinder IS a wonderful and noticable improvement. -Sean

Why no steering stabilizer Yamaha? Let's be honest, all bikes need one these days and age. Suzuki slaps one on and Kawasaki at least gives you a place to mount it. Also why no slipper clutch? Yamaha did a wonderful update but I feel they missed the mark.

What is the ETA on a 600/636 track shoot out.



Would be great if you guys had two categories, (i) best street/overall bike, (ii) the bike I'd buy to build into a race bike/track only bike.

These 600 class reviews remind me of that "Simpsons" episode where Lisa wanted a better role model for young girls than Malibu Stacy. Despite her efforts in coming up with a better product, all the young girls neglect Lisa Lionheart and flock to the new improved Malibu Stacy with a hat.



So this year's R6 has a new tire, huh? Changed out the forks, too? You don't say? Yamaha says... ram air... blah, blah, blah... mmm-hmm... faaaascinating...



OK. It's out of my system... or how about Part 3 or a shootout weighted on insurance costs.



Spoke too soon.
