Just remember Sean, your hard-hitting reporting will only receive praise if the results come out how KPC wants them to. If not you're nothing but a shill for the advertisers.



God-forbid you dare enjoy riding a Harley-Davidson product.

After 100 years it gets a bit difficult to find new things to say about motorcycles. Every year they get better and faster in small increments, but the supurlatives stay the same.



The thing is that it isn't the words, adjectives, adverbs etc. that count in good writing. It's something else that makes good writing and I won't bother trying to say what it is.



So why this little piece is quite entertaining, good writing, I don't take the concept to seriously.

Between the accountants with armchaps on big twins and the sportbike mafia, all clad in shorts, sandals and T-shirts, our "reputation" is unassailable.

That's good because the UN is going to recall all the vowels and send them in an emergency relief package to the Balkans in response to a plea by Croatian Foreign Minister Zbgnw Gknwrcz.

Pah! I say, pah! to your bleeding-heart handouts.



This requires a free-market capitalist solution, an approach which has brought more happiness and prosperity to humanity than any well-intentioned but ultimately misery-prolonging redistribution of resources.



Someone needs to lure British motojournalists to America and put them to work on a new motorcycle mag. American writers will be exposed to edgy, irreverent, expansive and entertaining moto-reviews, and will be forced to compete. Those who cannot adapt will die.



Free-market capitalism rocks. Anyone who disagrees should be shamed into ceasing their parasitic enjoyment of the fruits of the system and ride Urals instead.

Do it. I am SO tired of american moto-pubs. Twistgrip tried it, but was made a pariah by the advertisers. Only online can REAL moto-attitude survive.



Go illeagel.

Free market capitalism....right! Just ask the fun loving guys at Aberchrombe and Fitch what happened when they tried to get irreverent. The blue nosed, puritanical, "Christian" right were gathering wood for an old fashioned witch hunt in short order. Reading the editorial comments of the management of the 2 leading motorbike mags one might be forgiven for checking the cover to see if by chance one had picked up the National Review by mistake(see MB comment re Hillary Clinton in a thong in latest issue of Motorcyclist for a start). Is it any wonder that JB got the boot. No edgyness here buddy! Just right thinking. Ya see, British motorjournalists are lucky to live in a post-christian society not one thats guilt ridden. What all this has to do with motorcycling I haven't worked out yet.

As long as you say the new Kawasaki's run faster than ***** through a goose and compare favorably to the Holy Trinity of SV650, (used) VFR and Concours you should be ok,

You might also check that the under seat storage space has sufficiant room for those crucial magazine test results and cost/perfomance ratio spreadsheets.
