According to the latest Japanese bike rags' gossip, next year could see the debut of a number of half-faired FZ-1 style bikes, including ones based on the GSXR 1000, the the 9R, and the 919 Hornet.

Hmmn. Good point about the heat shields, but

still, I have to admit being somewhat paranoid

about having my bags go up in flames while

out touring...



As far as the centerstand, my understanding is

that it can't be fitted to the CA model, due to

CA emissions. True?

Default Re: Now that's what I call journalism!

I'm not a writer, but I am still a student, so writing papers is something that I need to be good at. How the F____ can it take you one month to write a friggin' article when you have 4 full-time guys (and maybe 1 or 2 more full-time gals) at your sleeve.



A lot of the dissention at MO is due to the lack of information. If we knew what was in the works at MO, and when it was due, and what each person was working on we'd probably have a lot less to b_tch about. But since we know so little so often, but expect so much, what are we do to BUT b_tch?



If you've made it this far, JB, I think you're an a$$hole.

Default Re: Defending JohnnyB, new found respect

Buy, Z3, your point that MD had the same blurb two weeks earlier is a valid point.



Maybe Burns and Company can enlighten us on how they learn about new tasty tidbits of news so we'll be more understanding when someone beats them to the line by 2 weeks.

Default HELLO LONGRIDE I AM A MEMBER OF THE AMA and there are bigger fish to fry.

I am a member of the AMA longride and I have done stuff with my employer to add more parking spots for bikes and promoting ride to work day. Believe or not I am kind of busy with Grad School, managing a team of engineers on one of the world's largest projects, raising two girls, and trying my best to please the wild Irish lass I'm married to. So I pay my dues to the AMA. But you and the AMA are really wrong about this helmet thing. i.e. your are wasting energy on it and Burns is right there are bigger fish to fry. You boomers really look silly on the helmet thing. Go watch any X-Games event you see any of those guys not wearing safety gear.



Once I complete my M.S. My goal is to become a MSF instructor. But right now I am kind of busy.

X Gamers HAVE to wear helmets, sir. Want me to send you all the skater and snowboarder and bike stunter vids that show sans helmet? Not a one has a helmet on so please don't tell me it's the norm because it's not. I see all the skaters in my area and NONE have helmets on at any time. No, I am not wrong about freedom of choice on ANY issue, and Burns is not an AMA member, so his opinion is of zero value to me.

Default Post your AMA number

Go ahead and post it. Also tell me what was on the cover of the last AMA magazine, also. If you won't post your number, I will assume you are lying about being a member since you never mentioned it anywhere. I believe someone else asked for your number and you never posted it.
