Nope, KP WAS Matt Mladin. Punched that ticket myself.

Anyway, in today's society, not enough "thanks" go around. I just wanted to say thanks for the write-up. I know it's your job, but it was a good read, nontheless.

I still love the Ducati 1198 (sch-wing!), but I might have to consider the Ninja thou', though.
Thanks, Doc! We're glad someone's getting their money's worth!

Wow so that race that never was would've been pretty interesting. I see now the Ninja was part of his cover.

Yeah, he would've cleaned Buz and Longrides clocks. Of course he'd have to soak them in lukewarm salt water for three days to get 'em REALLY spotless................

Perhaps the cbr inspired so much confidence that it encouraged the tester to push harder than he otherwise would have on another bike. Motogp and WSBK handle like they're on rails and yet the rider's still fall. Just because you have a excellent handling bike does'nt mean your immune to a crash.

Or to buy what we the consumer want to buy. Does anybody really need a Bmw m3, Bugatti Veyron, Corvette ZR1, Mercedes AMG whatever? Course not but why do the manufactures still make them? The consumer is demanding them and buying them. We could all be driving an eco friendly smart car but were choosing something that we want for whatever reason. Just cause they don't match your criteria for what you want in a machine does'nt mean everybody else is going to agree. Frankly I find it incredible that you can take these literbikes and literally race on Sunday and commute to work on Monday.

Be glad we still have a choice (albeit a seemingly shrinking one) as to what we can ride.
