Re: GP-Inspired R6 - in MCN (not)
nice that they make the effort tho, huh? Give us the Sean sketch... go on.

Re: GP-Inspired R6 - in MCN (not)
I get emails from them (MCN) all the time and they always seem desperate for attention, it seems...

Re: GP-Inspired R6 - in MCN (not)
"they always seem desperate for attention" Did I mention my cousin works for MCN...:)

Re: GP-Inspired R6 - in MCN (not)
Yep I used to get excited about MCN stuff until Sean would point out that their stuff was made up most of time with computer generated images etc... Must be a slow news day everywhere huh..

Re: GP-Inspired R6 - in MCN (not)
Maybe MCN borrowed an airbrush artist from Playboy - they have fantasy pictures too.

Sentry Sean protect us who would not otherwise know better.

It must run in the family...

seruzawa 08-11-2005 12:13 PM

0.1% better than the last R6! Gitcher checkbooks out now!

Re: Halleluyah!
howz that go? Grumpy, Dopey, Seruzawa, sarnali, Sleepy...?? then i forget.

BrowningBAR 08-11-2005 01:40 PM

Re: Halleluyah!
Listen, I am desperate for something that far exceeds my abilities by a really, really, really, really wide margin. On the previous R6 people would have still been able to identify my remains. Hopefully the new R6 will take care of that.

Finally, a perfect first bike for the novice!

No, its true! WWN had pix of Bat Boy on that exact bike doing a stoppie last week.

There is no such thing as "semi-secret". Spill it.

At least MCN has the "Brolly Babes" Squad.

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
That's what I want to hear about-a FZ1 that'll run with a Tuono. Aluminum chassis, 440 pound WET weight with fuel, first rate suspension. And gimme 130 rwhp and 80 ft/lbs o' torque around 6K rpm.

gbrummett 08-11-2005 05:33 PM

Same old shit
Sorry, looks like the same crap as last year...


uway 08-11-2005 05:53 PM

wow, everyone is way too cool for school
boy, those MCN guys can't pull the wool over your collective eyes.

Tee hee hee

eisenfaust 08-12-2005 05:28 AM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
What I want to know is:

Is MCN "not even close" in that their depiction is too radical a change from the current R6, or not *enough* of a change from the current R6.

Enqiring minds want to know.

ValkBandit 08-12-2005 05:29 AM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
let me get this straight, 'cause i'm scratching my head over this one.

the story here is that there is no story? surely there are stories that ARE stories that can be published. a road test of the buell ulysses, for instance, or at least acknowledgement that it exists. it is rocking the world according to all pubs but this one.

johnnyb 08-12-2005 05:52 AM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
It is still August. Quality takes time. It is job One at MO. Unlike some of those other sites that litter the airwaves with baseless errata and, ah, motorcycles and stuff we really don't care about. Hey I know let's discuss helmet laws...who wants to go first?

Emzedder 08-12-2005 06:15 AM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
MCN - commonly referred to on this side of the pond as "More Crap than News"

sarnali 08-12-2005 07:51 AM

Re: Halleluyah!
It's just a puny-girly 600. Any fool can wring the dog-knockers out of those things. When are we going to see a REAL MANS BIKE like the new 186hp ZX10?

sarnali 08-12-2005 07:58 AM

Re: I do I me...
Helmets are stupid. You can't see well with them, they block your hearing and if you fall in the water they drag you down head first like a concrete Yarmaluk.

If you have to wear one you need one of those little round beanie ones so they don't get in the way of your riding, plus you can hear yer' *****in' ass straight pipes better when you leave fer work @ O' Dark-30.

Helmets are for nancy's.

ValkBandit 08-12-2005 08:10 AM

Re: I do I me...
yarmaluk ... is that the replacement for the v-max?

johnnyb 08-12-2005 08:15 AM

Re: I do I me...
agrreed. If god had intended us to wear helmets he would've made our heads like an octopus's. I'll wear a helmet when they pry my cold, dead fingers from it. No, wait, that's not right is it...

Hutchinator 08-12-2005 09:14 AM

It's a conspiracy!
Lil do we realize that helmets really are amplifyers for the alien's signals that make us all fear anything dangerous. Pretty soon, we'll be driving padded cages that top out at 15mph (HS crashes are deadly), we'll ban guns (people can get hurt from those things), and boards with nails (they could poke an eye out), so we'll be ripe for invasion and can't runaway!

BrowningBAR 08-12-2005 09:28 AM

Re: Halleluyah!
Yeah, it's not even worth covering in faux leopard fur!

"War of the Worlds" is not just a movie!!!

Tigercub 08-12-2005 10:00 AM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
Feel all superior now do you? If I wanted to read MCN I wouldn't be here!

seruzawa 08-12-2005 11:32 AM

Re: It's a conspiracy!
Ummmm... just so you know... medical authorities in England are actually calling for the banning of pointed kitchen knives. No shyt. I'm not making this up. Your "joke" is slowly coming true.

Take action now!

Hutchinator 08-12-2005 01:25 PM

It REALLY is a conspiracy!
Really is a case of not knowing weither to laugh or cry.

I gotta say, if they ever come for mine, I'll be happy to open the door for them.

Hard to aim accurately through the door afterall.

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
I couldn't give a crap about another crotch rocket where 95% of the owners can use 95% of it's abilities.

When is MO going to review some more supermoto bikes? The Suzuki DRZ-400SM has been out for over a year now and still not a peep on this daily rider SM.

I want supermoto, standards, dual sports not poser bikes. I have been dying to read a review of the Suzuki forever now.

Hutchinator 08-12-2005 06:33 PM

Re: It's a conspiracy!
Who said it was?

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
A 600 Four is what you want in a streetbike. I've got one, and boy, it's cool having that top-weighted powerband so all the horsepower is on tap past 7,000 rpm. Really makes those trips to the corner store entertaining. BWAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Sigh...

I like my Bandit, but I shoulda bought an SV650. Torque is your friend on the street.

Maybe 1000 Fours aren't so dumb after all - there's no law that says you have to wind it out. Just enjoy the power down low.

But it's a Twin next time.

sportbikebandit 08-13-2005 02:31 PM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
When is the last time you rode a 600 SS replica racer? My guess is 10 years ago or never... I am sure my Ninja would smoke your Bandit 0-40. Get real man..

schizuki 08-13-2005 04:14 PM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
God, you're an illiterate a-hole.

Where did I say that my Bandit is faster than a repli-racer? I compared it - along with other 600 Fours, including yours - to Twins and liter-bikes for torque. Learn how to read.

schizuki 08-13-2005 04:26 PM

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
And here are the numbers:

ZX-6R - peak torque 44 ft/lbs @ 10,300.

SV-650 - peak torque 47 ft/lbs @ 7,000.

At 4,000 rpm, the SV has 30 ft/lbs. At 5,000, 37 ft/lbs.

At 4,000 rpm, the ZX-6R has 25 ft/lbs. At 5,000, 30 ft/lbs.

I eagerly await your nonsensensical, non-sequitur reply. Or you can keep pulling your pud and benchracing me in your mind.

Re: MCN: New GP Inspired R6 (not)
Make that "nonsensical." Then again, kook might merit the extra syllable.
