Default Re: ladies man says "MO Don

YOU BEAUTY!!!!



I got the dirty little to work. FINALLY!!!!!! You will never know how much grief I put myself through, trying to get those bloody DivX videos to work. As a last resort, I deleted everything to do with DivX off my system, then reinstalled the Global Div X player. Except this time I did the complete install, instead of doing a minimal install then installing the codec myself. Then what do you know? It worked!



Though, the first thing I saw when I tried the player on one of your videos scared the out of me. Seeing your ugly mug narrating those laps of willow...... I thought you were trying to keep you readership, not scare them away with hideous images.

Dont worry about the dragstrip times, I am sure they all fit into the 10.80-11.00 range, maybe the GSXR or R6 could pull 10.70s or something, but we already know it, so just post the article at your earliest convenience. Great.

Hey Brent,



You know what I would like to see? No? Well, I will tell you then. Instead of worrying about running this years 600's down a dragstrip for slightly faster than last year times(yawn), why not take a KX500, lower it alittle, gear it up so it can run 130-140 in 5th, and run that puppy down the dragstrip.



Whos with me?

Default Re: 0 - 60 Times

I would be more interested in 0-100 times, with a good launch all sportbikes whether they be 600 or open class have about the same 0-60.

Default Re: good email adress

heh, good one.



I really need to get ride of that listing, even the fake e-mail. I think it's funny, though, if everyone puts bogus accounts there and the trolls get nothing but junk from MO.



Anyway, in the previous revision of this news.mo, I'd removed the fake e-mail account, and clicking in the username took you to a form to e-mail the person, the e-mail address was held back as a database lookup here, so no one ever saw your address. I'll try and fix that this weekend...

Default um

I appreciate the lengths you folks go to turn out a good read, but this isn't standard journalism. This story isn't going to print. You could easily release the bulk of the article now and link to the less important drag strip test on the main page and in the article itself when done. Why not just satiate your readers with the already complete portion of the article that they're most interested in anyway, and tell them to check back later for a few relatively meaningless numbers later?

Great narration Brent! I see you chose to ride one of the best 600s (I don't have a biast opinion, heh, heh, just because I own one...) I love the view from the bike, can see the speedo and rpms and the track. Thanks for the update and I'm eager to see if the new GSXR is better than the R6. Should be a really competitive year for all the 600s. I for one still love you guys. Keep up the good work.
