Maybe that 'honest assesment' and 'decent mag review' could be done by some honest politicians, and some caring lawyers

I think we're going to have to wait for real-life street reports from guys like us, and assess it ourselves against where we percieve they 'fit' compared to our riding.

I have no doubt what so ever , that the best reviews will be on this site.
Not only is it better to wait a while , incase of problems. But any new model always comands an OTT price, in my opinion.
Not jelous of any one with a new one next year. Grown out of all that sort of thing.
Oh , and the thought of having to get all them extra bits and pices to add on again. Screens, R&Gs , rewire intercom etc.
Only had the one I got now year un half. 1400m only, just coming up to being run in.
That reminds me, must check oil and do first service. Must be due soon now.

Magazines skew the view in their own ways but no more than riders here do. Care to discuss Continental Road Attacks again? I definitely think we could all benefit from any comments we could get from accomplished professional riders like those I mentioned. Afterall, we all wonder about the effect the AE will have on performance, so let's get some input from someone who actually knows something about performance riding. We can sort out the chaff as we see fit.

It's allways going to be each to there own. Surely two top notch testers could quite easily, come up with totaly different opinions.
sure , if the ******* wont start , then it's all the same opinion. "It's a bag of crap"
But , ride position , handling , all that type of thing, is a personal thing.

Some Mags in the UK tend to say it's good or bad dependant on the manufacturer. Advertising is great controlling tool.

You'd think that whoever programmed these spambots would at least get the coding right. It's a real pain having to cut and paste all those links into the browser address box
