No one has asked the only really important question.

Will Honda's 'new' CBR1000R be the new spec-sheet bragging rights winner at the Burger Barn? Because that's where most of them are going to spend most of their time.

Gonna have to wait for the all important 'shootout' winner to see who has the bragging rights at the Burger Barn. According to some people, that is the most important part of any motorcycle is that is wins something. That way the loser that buys it can at least brag about his bike.

Well, I could go and buy one of these this afternoon. Then I could sign up for track school and practice a lot. But I'm afraid that Keith Code would still kick my but on a 1985 GPZ750 like he would 99% of CBRKZZXYZ owners.

I ride because it's fun and I love to humiliate cagers. I'd rather have a Tiger. Then I can humiliate them in comfort. Like that fool in the Saloon Mustang or whatever slowass POS Ford's foisting on us these days.

From an article on MCN the designer said "if" they build it expect it to be expensive. They want only top-self parts on the bike. Love to see it, but at the current exchange rate the bike will probably push the $15k mark. Cool, nonetheless.

Okay, enough talk about Buz's b-ball skills. More about how great MO is, please.

But if we must digress from your praise to the mighty MO lords, I'd like to add my vote to those who'd like to ride that be-atchin' looking CB1000R.

That CB1000R looks a heck of a lot like the B-King to me...
