Default Re: Shaping up to be a Very Good Year...

"notably absent from its 2003 early-release Redbook are all three CBRs: 600F4i, 954RR and 1100XX"



I couldn't wait for Honda's new $10+K CBRXX. A '02 Suzuki Bandit 1200S was waiting for me. Just $6,900 out the door...

Default Now that's what I call journalism!

Have you guys been reading MotorcycleDaily.com? Seems awfully similar to a post from July 31st...



http://www.motorcycledaily.com/31july02newmodels.html



Where's the real content, guys?

Default 2003 GSXR 1000

Yep, but wait till you see the 2003 gsxr1000. new styling. new components. more power, and less weight. they better not have held back at all on the cbr1000 or the new gsxr1000 is gonna hurt it bad.

Z3Coupe makes a valid observation. You're latest missive is VERY similar to MotorcycleDaily's earlier article.



I'm not bothered that MO and MotorcycleDaily should run similar stories. There's no reason two moto commentators can't have similar perspectives... but why do you have to insult Z3? (He's not the first subscriber to call for meatier content.)



And why do you condescend to MD? Not only do they share your perspective, but also they published it first.



Now what are you going to do, tell me to "get two big black dogs..."?

I'm lost. what the f**k do dogs, big, black, or otherwise, have to with anything? What if Z3 were to get a big black cat up in him? Would that be a pu**y joke?

I don't want to turn this into another motorcycle.com pissing match, but...



"Pay up!" You said. "If you pay us, we'll have more and better content!"



"Okay" Said us, and wallets parted. Cobwebs were pushed asides, and dollars changed hands.



So where's the more and better content we were promised? I actually think you guys were better off when it was free! Now you spend our subscription money on beer! Don't think I didn't see the beer next to the computer when I was supposed to be staring at the boobies in the jacket...



*sigh*



I actually *do* like you guys. That's why I keep coming back. That's why it bothers me that you're not living up to your potential. If I didn't care, I wouldn't poke fun.



But seriously, where's the beef? The super-sport-touring comparo? The Nekkid Bike comparo? The SV vs All-Things-Two-Wheeled comparo? Having the intern tell us about his new shock? Or his new headlights? Puh-leez. While I do admire his work, that's not the kind of more and better content we all had in mind.

*****, man. You got us nailed. Sorry for taking your buck a month milk money. You'll be very happy with Dirk Edge over there. It's cutting-edge stuff.
