Default Working... yeah right

You call that work? I had to sit in front of a keyboard all day and slave away pecking at keys. I even managed to send out e-mail!



You owe us big time, MO! I expect nothing less than a full litre bike review, Hyabusa vs. ZX-12R vs. Blackbird, *and* an essay on procrastination within the next month. Failing that I'll have no choice but to post more nasty messages that make me sound like a lunatic.



P.S. Any idea if you'll be able to squeeze in a buyers guide for more mundane items like gloves and what not?

Sorry for your work dilemma. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.



Oh, and we'll get cranking on that article on procrastination... just as soon as we finish a few other things first.

Yes, we did use the 748S with its Showa suspension (Ti-nitride-coated forks are tre' cool), Marchesini rims and adjustable steering head angle.



Nice pit bike? It's a nice bike -- period. You might like it even more if you got one on the track. Mucho fun!

The gearshift lever "snapped off"!?!?!?! LOL!! Typical cheap Suckzuki crap. Sure they go fast but for how long and at what price. Funny stuff.

Default Re: MO Survey Results?

Did you tabulate the 600 c.c. results? Are you in fact going to listen to your readership and put street testing first?

Why would the Honda be a cheater ? Its a new design for '01 so it may be the fastest. Do you know who has won the most 600 supersport races and titles ? Try Duhamel and Honda, and I doubt the A.M.A. 's teardown would allow cheater bikes. So would you like to refrase your comment ? I'm not saying the saying the Honda will be first either, I'm saying your making accusations based on either yours or somone elses !

Does p-o-s.com stand for "puckered old sphincter" cause that's the only thing I can think of from your moronic post. You even admit that Suzuki's are fast and the fact is that if you can lean a bike over far enough to snap the gear shift lever off then it's already past the point most bikes can handle. Bend over and get the Shaft !

Did you read this article? it said the gearshift snapped off. It didn't say he laid the bike down. that tells me that he was awful low in the corner. I would say that is a bike that handles quite well and a rider that can "RIDE!" Ever drug a footpeg? doesn't always have the best results!
