Quit the smoke and mirrors game Sean. You know you wanna start racin' again and do a little sandbaggin' at the club level. I hear there's a couple fast guys up there who'll give ya a go. Marteen Hackathrottle and Stevens Vlipabout, or something like that?

Nope, this is the day he totalled a new R6. Roughly three weeks after he totalled the Daytona 650. He also broke his cocyx in this one, so let's just say it hasn't been a good four weeks for the guy.

It seems strange that "in this day and age" a major manufacturer is still making distinctions between (established) online and offline pubs. My perception was that Yamaha is more marketing-savvy than the other Japanese bike makers and should know better than this.

So, give us the skinny, Sean. Is the new one .001% better than last year's? .002%? .003%?

Yeah, itÂ’s getting so every time I read a report, I feel like I should be sitting here with a set of dial-calipers and a magnifying glass. Things keep going like they are, a guyÂ’s gonna need to take advanced-geometry, and go to track-school, just to fantasize about riding.



This keeps up, I'll have to start reading Hustler.
