You pretty much nailed it. I use the clutch for 1-2 because the tranny makes that big jump accross neutral then CLUNKS into second on most bikes. When sport riding, I use the clutch on 1-2 to prevent the shift from breaking the tire loose (I prefer to use throttle and lean angle for that). -Sean

Default Re: boxer er, power cup footage?

Sorry, only place I know of is motogp.com, and ya gots to pay to watch.

They have reasonable prices, though, especially if you don't have to watch the live webcast.

Shouldn't a review at least mention the price? Of is it one of those things that if you have to ask don't bother.



At any rate I think it's the only bike around, except for the Blackbird, which fits into a niche with my 1200ZZR, which you can get for something in the $10K range. Sounds like a reasonable comparo but probably too narrowly focused to bother with.



I think I'd take it over my ZZR if it wasn't for that X thousands of dollars more.

Ah, crap, I forgot to mention moving across neutral. Well, that's what you're here for.



Ooh, and I hate that CLUNK. False neutrals give me the squirms. You just know you, and everyone around, is going to heard that dreaded sound.



Ahem, not that that happens to me much, of course...

And while you are trying to figure out how to configure a windsock for your mics, hows about logging onto J&R - or something similar - and getting a consumer grade steadycam thingie. Last time I looked, they were bout $500 or so.

My previous bike was a ZZR1200. My good friend wrecked it and I replaced it with a Blackbird. The Blackbird is a better motorcycle. Smoother, better seat, fuel injection with no flat spots, better riding position, better build quality, about the same power. I would never consider going back to the ZZR after having my Blakbird. Unfortunately, they are no longer marketed in the USA. Rumor has it that a replacement will come.

So you're either Don from Scuderia or Terry Gross?

Default It's in the spec chart

$15,750 plus options. (ESA, ABS, heated grips.)



Jeez! Do we need to do a ZZR/K1200S/Hayabusa comparo?

Default Price!

rapier asks: "Shouldn't a review at least mention the price?"



And I reply: Shouldn't a poster at least read the article, before the post a missing info complaint? The MSRP and Option Prcing are clearly listed at the top of the Spec Chart.
