Right back at'cha there, partner. Can't we all just get along In all seriousness... I don't think Texas30 came on this thread with the intention to be a troll... But for anyone bringing up what a magazine rates a bike / bikes... you do realize they get kick backs from the companies for good plugs? Even the biggest POS bikes get some sort of positive plug. If you want to know what is well liked... go to your local track or event and ask some riders... thats if you can't ride it for yourself.
