Interesting article Thanks much. I liked the reference description on the H*nda to "snuffling for truffels". A little slow to go you think?

There is no comparison in looks, IMHO.

And well, it IS a period piece! Which fits in nicely with today's performance.
I'll go with the "behind- the- bike-shed naughty". :rofl:

Is there a forum name for the "Turbo giggles"? :roll:

THE EDGE: there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

Thanks for posting BRZ, I'll move this into its own thread at an appropriate time. Posting current articles is a definite no-no in terms of copyright though, whether it helps circulation of the magazine or not is irrelevant, it's against the law. Let's hope no-one notices this time eh?
First to 200mph (2006) and still the fastest (211mph)
Quickest turbo-only 8.69 @ 162mph

Cool article thanks a lot for sharing. I am still trying to figure out our political correctness, in this world though. They sure did spend a lot of time talking about a butt ugly H*nda, that does almost nothing well, except maybe ride comfort. And you liked the clocks on the H*onda, WOW that was like the best thing they could think of to say about it :rofl:

I would have just stated something like this Kawasaki cleans this H*onds clock in pretty much every area. ARTICAL OVER :victory
