Great story guys, my boss hates MO more than ever (he will never understand how my wasting his time reading MO actually improves my price/performance ratio at work)



It amazes me how refined these bikes are (and the 1k's). Each manufacturer has them at peak performance for the size, what actually differentiates them is as subtle as seat padding, or slightly off putting clocks. I know my abilities can't even reach those of these rides, but a little voice in my head tells me to find out every time I ride one.

It worked for me using Mozilla Firefox but was jacked up using internet explorer.

Touche'!



I like them too.. but I certainly don't let them have a say in what motorcycles I pick.



I'm buyin' the Kawi. The fact that it reacts negatively to those with high estrogen levels just makes my choice all the more clear.



Thanks for the review!



And you girls with your "negative" comments on the 636 have made me even more sure of my purchase.

I hit B&N and Borders looking for Roadrunner. What gives? You gonna have the same circulation as KP's blog?

You're right about that!



I put the used synthoil from my Sprint in my mower, and it fell off the lawn!

Default MO for Dummies.

We can talk about anything except red state/blue state issues and we can't post links to lunatic websites, right?

I agree for the most part, but a comparo every couple of years is more than enough time to spend on these same four bikes.

We're in some of those but not all. Last month's circ was 108,000 so not bad for a $7 niche mag going into its 5th year of existence.

I actually DO use car oil in my racebike.



Let the flames/hosejob/snide remarks begin.
