Classic & Motorcycle Mechanics April 1994

Probably the first report of race mode in print, although they don't get it quite right.

First to 200mph (2006) and still the fastest (211mph)
Quickest turbo-only 8.69 @ 162mph

Practical Sprotsbikes is rare here in the US. Any chance you can take a few pictures when you get home? :)

i doubt theyd bother.i think it would be hard for them to prove they lost any money through it. :thumbup
if they were bothered (and knew about it) they would probably just demand any download link be removed.
it may actually encourage people to buy the magazine if they like the article :baby

For our members overseas that can't buy it in the shops here is a recent article featuring the 750 Turbo. For members that can, here is an brief excerpt from the Practical Sportsbike magazine so you can decide whether you would like to buy it to read the whole issue. :thumbup

Thanks a lot!
TTTT, I'm hoping for Mang to sling the complete 750turbo article up eventually when spare time abides.
Imported HQ moto-periodicals are justifiably expensive. Fast Bike, Superbike and Classic Sportbike(?) are outstanding!
I have also been extremely impressed with PS, having read many issues that were accessible for free online a few months after release.
Brilliant articles to say the least!
