as i read it it was dry with only one wet session Just a little fed up of over rated journos telling me how a bike handles when they never back it up with piccies or even better lap times. Guess the only protest is not to buy the publication. Have you seen the new PB ? It's worse than when hargreaves was editor last time ! Think the mags need another shake up. There isn't one worth buying at the moment Motorcycle racer was good, and it had the visordown plug in the back page article
Not even a little bit...

The old "Motorcycle Weekly" was a much better publication (showing my age now), if that could ever be revived it would kick Motor Cycle No News into touch.
Someone should do a test of sportsbikes and do it on pure lap times with several different riders of varying abilities on board, also using last years bikes vs this years. I'd put money on a born again being quicker round the track on last years softer more forgiving CBR than on this years harder edged one, but because the mags say the new one is better they go and buy the new one.
I also think the bikes are now that good that it would take a racer to tell the difference, perhaps that is who should be testing these bikes anyway ?
tis why when we want to read a review of a new bike we usually use Fast Bikes - at least they race and can ride a bike reasonably well
It's quite insulting for the readers seeing someone lean a bike over 15 degrees and declare it better than last years model.
When will somebody please set up a sensible magazine with interesting articles for ALL sectors of the biking community.
