How about obtaining all your test bikes this way and tell us what you really think, like you used to a few years ago before your editorial/management changes. Not that you're dishonest or biased, just that you can be more free wheeling and critical without fear of reprisal.

I am I crazy or is the text of the original post changing before my eyes?

Anyhow, Mr. Holter had better keep an eye on his hot wings. You think Sean is fast on a bike? You should see how fast he is going after a plate of buffalo wings.

I'd gladly trade my camera and all my Daytona photos for another plate of Hooters "hot" Wings. -Sean

You know den1111 might be on to something. Have you guys ever considered doing a "Real World" comparison using privately owned bikes with the common mods done to them? Granted, it's not as pure and objective as one done with stock bikes, but it could be just as informative and fun.

Triumph should have just made a 750, period. It's a damn shame the 750 class is practically dead and all praise to Suziki for keeping it alive, sort of. The liter bikes are simply too much for mortals anymore.



500, 750, 1000. So logical. The whole 600 class is a historic oddity and a mistake. 636 was cheating small time, the 675 is in its own neverworld.



I blame Kawi as much as anyone. First because in some weird way the 600 class sprang from their in so many ways trendsetting 550. Then because they let the Z7 go undeveloped and then die.



Bring back the 750's. Not too big, not too small, just right.

So, you say 500 is logical. Then, what is not logical about the 600 class? Please explain/expand your point.
