Default What a Lineup

Great teaser guys ....I mean you lucky bastards. Next week should tie up some loose ends. Video production is really world class. Soon you will be the most sought after moto-journos on the planet.

Excellent

My only complaint is for the future when you compare the Kawi vs the winner of this group. We already know it's 'worse' than the BMW from numerous head to head tests.
But the Kawi could still place last in this field, while Japan vs Europe suggests it would be one of the top two bikes instead of possibly the 4th best sport bike...

Yep, it was an excellent few days to be a MO staffer. Quail on Saturday, Infineon on Sunday, Thunderhill on Monday! Kudos to new addition Mike Maez for producing a kick-ass video!

Aside from fantastic bikes and a great track, My experience is that Keigwins events are always good for some tasty lunch. Lucky bastards - LOL

Looking forward to the rest.

The videos just keep getting better and better. The intro to this one even got my kid's attention...not an easy thing to do! And if it weren't for the video, I might never have known Panigale is pronounced: "Pan-a-gal-ay." Having said that, I'm sticking with "Finagle."

The onboard shots were excellent, do you use GoPro cameras for that?

The grande finale shootout with Japan Inc. is going to be great!

If you had these three bikes to ride at your will, you'd probably skip lunch, too. We did!

Glad you liked the vid. New guy Mike Maez is a fantastic addition! For onboards, we used a Contour and a GoPro.

It's been a few days since I read the article, but I'm pretty sure they specifically mentioned why MV Agusta wasn't included.
