I apologize! Clearly, if you look beyond the first word of my post, you will see that I actually DID have a comment pertinent to the article. Feel free to moderate if you DO NOT believe in the first amendment to the US constitution.

FYI, I was being sarcastic. I was paying homage to all those useless "first" posts of yore that never say anything with regard to the review. At least I offered an opinion about the bikes in question. Whereas, other posers... oops, I meant posters did not.

(open sarcasm) Like it really matters who is first!! (close sarcasm) And if it really doesn't matter, then what's all the fuss about?!
Try adding something like: "Those filthy Germans and their filthy Tuetonic ways." on every new article for a while. It breaks up the monotony.

Let's make something clear. The First Amendment applies to GOVERNMENT censorship. MO is not government.

If you wanna complain about how we mod stuff around here, fine. But at least do so without throwing up that tired canard of the first amendment.

My point is obviously lost on you. Moving on.

Sachi, based strictly on appearance, which of these motorcycles gets your RPMs up?

Actually, none of them. I tend to like naked bikes. I do appreciate the looks of the 1098 and (rather more) Triumph's 675. I think the Suzuki's appearance is atrocious - the style it has engendered IMO is the "Bangle butt" of motorcycles. But style is subjective and I'm not the typical buyer for those bikes, so I do my best to ignore them (and their riders). ;)

You can certainly buy a bike that can wup any sub 100K+ car for 10K, but can you ride it that way? The car is IMO easier to drive fast with moderate skils than the bike is. The bike's however, are way more fun.
I really like the % ratings by bike, it really gives you a method of understanding the rater's feeling of the amount of difference between bikes. You could lose the poser category however.
Shame about the 1098, it seems to be doing very well in the on track comparisons, not sure how it would do on a street comparison? Pete, have you ridden them both? What sayeth you?
The "first" thing may be annoying, but it pales in comparison to degrading a motorcycle discussion into why someone thinks global warming is BS.

Isn't it? Global warming uses flawed "models" to project a scientific theory. Why don't the "warmers" have real statistical data- the non- "warmers" or "unbelievers" have data that counter. :)

Back to the bikes: It's clear that the Honda is a better overall value in the bang for the buck equation. Now put the CBR head to head with the standard 1098 and see what happens. I like the 1098, but I'd bet the CBR comes out the winner.

Kevin- for shyts and giggles why don't you call Larry Pegram and Erion Racing and get a Infenion test of their FX bikes. Get Larry and Jake to do the pro thing and then take a couple of guys from the office and trade off the bikes and get your impressions. Bet you'd have fun. You have 9 days to pull this together- you can do it. They'll be testing after the races so you could probably squeeze that in.

You guys can agree all you want, but that 'First' crap has seen its last day here. A free exchange of ideas, even if you don't agree with what is said, is different from the 'First' nonsense, and ideas and discussion, and yes, even arguments about all types of things are what the site is all about. What it isn't about is a contest to see who can post 'First' the fastest. It was funny for about 2 1/2 seconds here, and now it is just childish. I don't think it's all that tough on people not to do it. If any of you can't see the difference between an off-topic discussion and a juvenile spam post, then I can't really help you out.

LR- we get the point. Please feel free to help yourself to the decaf. Yoga, self-medication or a nap may help.

Sorry if I possibly annoyed you. I certainly would never want to do that.
How could I possibly be annoyed by you? Neal Boortz, Savage Nation, Randi Rhodes, CNN, my crazy recluse neighbors are annoying. You, however, can be ignored or overlooked if you become annoying. Alas, you are simply a pimple on the butt cheek of life. Not annoying- just uncomfortable on occassion.

Crack a smile and know that you are understood and enjoyed by most.

What are the odds? I like naked girls. Ok, not all of them, but a lot of them.

What is BS about global warming is that it is attributed purely to man. Just if ice age and desertification of Sahara never happened.

And the billions of tons of CO2 that are being released daily by fossil fuel combustion couldn't possibly effect the climate. What were those stupid scientists thinking????

Ken-
Call the office- 1
No doubt all the SUVs traveling throught the 14th century were the cause of that warming period, too? Face it, we all need to be better stewards of this planet but when looking at statistical data over the last century there has only been an increase of 1 degree in average temp readings during that time. I'm not saying we shouldn't make an effort in cleaning our air, but the Earth's atmosphere is resilient and obsorbs the CO2 like the seas obsorb the oil that seeps from the ocean floors.- 2
