'08 Litre bike comparison

Can't say I'm surprised with the track results. In fact, the rankings ended up identical to my thoughts of the litre bikes.

typical rag review. not scientific whatsoever.

there are so many factors which could change results.

for a real test, i say get 5 riders. have them each rotate through the 5 bikes. then analyze the results...

the honda may just fit that rider better and his riding style.

I agree, these reviews can't be taken seriously, there are far too many variables. They're still fun, and tend to spark the age old debate, at the end of the day it will always be the rider. Rossi will spank me every time on a 250 and me on my bike, thats reality.

rags are getting worse. they are just in it for the buck and the free chit. they dont dare say a bike is bad, lest they lose advertising sales, and get less free swag.

the trend i am noticing is less comparable numbers and more incomparable adjectives. they all just sounds like:

"yes, the honda is fantastic, whereas the yamaha is superb. the suzuki's were excellent and the kawi was astounding. so there you have it, mystery revealed."

i swear the write they articles ahead of time with blanks, and then play ad-libs with a thesaurus and list of brand names. doesnt matter if its bikes, brakes, tires...

i remember a time when super streetbike was cool. looking back, i dont know if i was just a noob didnt know any better, or if its really gone downhill. i havnt even seen an ssb in months, but im pretty sure this months issue has a stretch, dropped, busa with a paintjob and a wide back tire. zzzzzZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz....

Your thoughts are mostly true, and I think most wouldn't disagree. I am curious however, on what basis do you and have you chosen your bikes? And this question goes for anyone else that cares to answer. The gixxer has one most of these comparisons in the past few years, and naturally, what is the most pervasive and wide-spread bike out there? Connection?
