Default Re: 2005 Honda CBR 600RR - Street

I actually agree with kpaul...



A motorcycle's first priority has never been comfort. And who cares how a GS500 handles?! Suzuki doesn't, why should you?



The Honda S2000 sounds like the vehicle for many MO readers posting on this thread.



I'm young still, but with far worse knee damage than many of you middle-aged people. I do what I can to keep my body in good enough health to ride what I want. As long as you don't commute on one of these, they aren't bad... Just ride it for it's purpose.



Somehow I feel that if this review were of a Duc or Aprilia, you more mature readers wouldn't be making the same complaints of ergo's, etc. Quite frankly, your disinterest in these "torture racks" is due to the fact that you're 20+ years outside of the target demographic (at heart).



Maybe Sean should put more emphasis on the 749 and how Italian it is in the upcoming shootout, to appeal to those MOrons turned off by the youthful image of the CBR600RR.

I commuted a lot on R6 like 100 miles a day in L.A., and it became a favorite. Soften the preload and all that... then again i am short-ass, so...

I hate to give the testers/test selection commitee any credit (they've never tested a KTM Duke, or a US-model Husky SM450R, which can be registered for the street in California). However, I've been reading for years that 600 sportbikes are among the biggest sellers - it makes sense to write about models that the largest number of riders are interested in.



And maybe spending more time in the gym and less in a recliner with a tv remote would help some of the complainers to realize what they're missing by riding only "comfy" bikes.

So is it up for sale? I might be interested in buying a ZX-6 that has never been past 9 grand on the tach.



How will the fact that you don't even ride a motorcycle anymore affect your ability to prophesize?



BTW, it has taken you approximately 2 weeks to obliterate any of the humble promises made when your voluntary departure from MO was on the table for discussion. Seems over 84% of the MO population has spoken.



Given that you don't ride anymore you probably don't even need to wait for your subscription to expire, right?

KSpike, huh? Guess that's not surprising.



Next poll suggestion for Sean..."Should MO give subscribers the option of having a KSpike filter on discussion boards"?



Thread, Flat, Nested, No KSpike.



It'll be lonely for you, but hey, you'll still be here...be here...be here...be here...be here...be here.

Default Ha ha ha!

This is the funniest reader response I've ever seen.



After all the Harley bashing, after all the custom criticizing... we actually have a ***** session directed at supersports ?!?



Maybe some of you guys should re-read MO's last sport-tourer comparo. That was a GREAT story. You'll come back feeling refreshed and ready for the supersport shootout.



Woo-hoo! Bring it on, MO.

I'm not complaining about the 600 SS bikes. I really like reading the stories, but the bikes don't fit my life right now. In the real world of commuting (95% of my riding), these bikes make no sense. And for that, they make me smile. Especially, with the trendy tribal flames motif.



NOW, if I get stationed at Edwards AFB (next to Willow Spings!), I'll be heavily in the SS market and the 600RR will make perfect sense as will a set of full leathers. That's not to say that I won't take my present DL650 out on the track, but I'd like a bike that was specifically engineered for superior track performance. And I'm sure I'll then be consumed with getting track time. My paradigm will shift...



For the record, I ran 3 miles today and I'm a 41 yo geezer. We old guys just don't pose anymore -- we buy the bikes we want. And if a bike is silly for street use, we old guys will let you know the emperor has no clothes.



Now where did I put that remote?
