You've nailed it sarnali. Yes this was a test of greater quality than any of the print mags put out., for all of the reasons that you mentioned. The problem I have is that the big four have gotten so good at building these 600s that there is no more than a hair's breadth between them from year to year. If MO had unlimited resources I wouldn't mind if the did a 600 comparison every month, but the way things are I think their time would be better spent if they would spend their efforts on tests other than those that every motorcycle publication will be doing anyway.

You guys better watch out, word is that invoking the name of KPaul will soon be declared a "thought crime" at MO and will get you banished too. We're only supposed to talk about helmet laws and unobtainium starter buttons remember?

I agree in part and disagree in part.



I love it when MO test other bikes. Their recent sport-tourer shoutout was the best I've ever read. Then there's the Connie-VFR comparo, cruisers, ... and let's not forget Yossef's incredible knack for getting rides on the exotics.



But I still think MO's time is well spent on the supersports. So what if everyone else is doing the same comparo, MO does the best work, and I prefer to read it here.

The ZX-10 was to fast for you. The 636 is to fast for you.



Sean... how do you tolerate these great weeping vaginas?

I've allways gotten crappy mileage out of Dunlops. I wondered if it was a universal perception of them or just me.

To put it bluntly; I've always liked vaginas and great weeping ones are no exception. -Dirty
