Where the hell is the real news? This canned crap is sure getting old. There better be some semblance of the real MO happening pretty soon or you new guys are really gonna screw the pooch. Looks like you've turned your back on the whole MO culture.

Any of you folks owned a recent version of the Enfield Bullet? I'm thinking of getting the Military version for shytes and grins. It would make a nice bookend to my thirty year older buy 20 year newer SR500.

What? I thought he was going to be "Dictator for Life." Oh, never mind, that was Cheney.

What is this crap? Freddie Spencer, Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson and any Hayden (excuse the spelling, this fired me up) never used the word "tyre", this is the US and we speak American English not UK English d@mnit! The word is TIRE! What's next colour? BM instead of BMW? Cow pats instead of piles or just sh!t? Is Kwhatever doing the proof reading? Did you all borrow this article from Motocycle Consumer News? Come on now, you all were supposed to improve MO. I can't believe that even Motorcycle Daily and EVERYBODY else scooped you on the new Concours, that was hotly debated here for years. Get on the stick MO, or you are going to go the way of so many other online rags...and that pains me very badly!

Have a friend who has one. Runs just like you would expect a 500 single from the twenties or thirties would run...'cause that is exactly what it is. Hoot to ride, don't get in a hurry, 'cause you can't. It's a wonderful toy and you really don't work on the new ones much anymore because of the modernization of parts that made sense to modernize.
