Honda and Yamaha might have an increase sales this year due to this sort of write up but since everyone have a suzuki, they will still be number one in sales. Kawasaki will still only have it's loyal owner which is too many too count.
The top selling 600 in the UK the yamaha, not the suzuki.

However in the states i would say you are correct about seeing more gixxers ( larger population means more squids)

Wow totally uncool. Frost is in their and he still has a column in the back, and Wilkins must be good at crashing cause he has just recovered from a pretty nasty wreck.

I guess I would be pretty biased too given the circumstances. Did they take care of your bike at least?

You know, I always think like that (nice and cynical ) but this year Neeves is racing an R1 in the powerbikes/superstock and you know he's going to be getting some help so I really thought the Yamaha would come out top.

Guess the Honda must be that good :/:

actually they fixed that problem with 07 600 so I am sure that the 08 1000 should have. Decent seat as well.

Guess the Honda must be that good :/:
The mid range on the 07 cbr is excellent. The fueling is smooth however it is slightly abrupt when opening the throttle from a closed position. Also engine breaking on this bike seems more pronounced than on any other bike I have ever owned and I attribute it to the lack of slipper clutch and hondas system. The best thing about it is the clip one are very high compared to other bikes making this bike very comfterable on the road.

I think I can agree, the 03-06 cbr seat is really a 2x4 covered with leather

You are I right just my opinion after riding the bike for last few mo months, but it is far from perfect, the suspension has to be the worst stock I have ever ridden. It is very bouncey however I attribute that to the light weight of the bike, me being to fat for it
