Default From the Lawyers

Way back when we could afford lawyers, janitorial services and matching shirts:



"All Motorcycle.Com photos and videos are of professional riders wearing proper protective safety gear under controlled, closed-course conditions. Any attempt to duplicate Motorcycle.Com's test rider's actions may be dangerous. Always wear proper protective safety gear. Obey all traffic laws. Motorcycling is dangerous, learn how to make yourself a better rider by attending a Motorcycle Safety Foundation school. Call 1-800-CC-RIDER for more information."



And where are you getting the idea we are encouraging anything? A motorcycle with a 150mph engine should have ancillary equipment that can handle 150mph, whether or not the rider chooses to go that fast. That's all we're saying.



Should our riders go as fast as they can, all the time? We definitely don't encourage it. Should they do the occasional wheelie, burn-out or ton-up spurt on a clean, dry, deserted road many miles from civilization? We don't think that's a bad decision, but we definitely do not advocate breaking the law. If we could afford an attorney we'd go after you for libel, sir.



Just kidding!

I'd take the 107hp and 100 less pounds or more any day.

Default Quick answer about other missing bikes:

ST1300: Done to death. After something's been in three comparison tests, we don't see the need to put it in again. Sorry, Honda!



VFR800: see above



Concours14: just to re-state, we can't get one for a while, but when we do, it's going up against the 2007 BMW K-GT ASAP. Rocket Tour 2007, bay-bee!



ST3: Ducati doesn't want their 107hp bike compared to 140hp behemoths, for some reason. Bwak, bwak!



Norge: They aren't in country yet, and we didn't know about them when the test was planned.



We are trying to get an R1200GT, 2007 Triumph Sprint, Norge and an ST3 for later in 2007.

I think you MO guys are still on Ducati NAs kook list for your track-based review of the MTS.



They probably figured you'd base your sport touring review on how the bikes handled single track.
