That's a first class test, you guys are getting better every time, really good reading/photos/video, great stuff.



Since the 600 Supersports are out of the way I hope we'll be seeing the same level of reporting on more mundane street-oriented bikes for the rest of the year. Nothing specific, just a round mix of whatever you can get, V-strom, Speed Triple, BMW R1150, what-ever you can find........

So if the most comfortable bike won, how would the Triumph Daytona 650 have done?

Is there any chance that MO could get a ride on one of the MotoGP bikes? Cycleworld, Sportrider etc. occasionally take some laps on those things - it would be neat to read a MO review of say last year's RC211V or YZRM1.



A pretty audacious ask - but I seem to remember an 8 or 10 bike shootout a while back, which was a pretty audacious plan in its own right.

Not to change the subject, but those Avons we were talking about last year? I've got over 10k on 'em now, look good for another 5k at least. Stick pretty good too. Recommended

Really? That's especially good considering that the Trophy isn't the lightest bike around. Which model Avons are they? My current set of D205s are getting worse for the wear.

Where is your review of the Gixxer 1000? I think you should post future content and the date you plan to publish it.



Just a comment.

I think ya boyz done good. I wish I could have been there. If the great hubris chief Steven V had not called down a deluge on Willow Springs I would have been too.

AV45 front, AV46 rear. Pricewise they're on par with Pilot Roads, spendier than Dunlops but as you recall I only got 5k out of a set of D220's.



The Trophy and me probably come in close to 800lbs gassed and rolling, road temps here are less than Utah I'm sure, but we had close to a month of 100's last year and upper 90's for three month's. Most of my riding is fast commuting and general dorking around but I don't baby the bike and the tires are feathered all the way out to the edge.



I think they'd work pretty good on the Suzuki.
