Fireblade v RC211V

Copy of an article from the MCN boys on a US site....

Not that I am biased but I do love the look of that bike

Fair article but........

"Fit the Blade with some slicks and race suspension to sharpen the steering and give more grip, and you'd end up with something that's not far off an RC211V. Honestly."

I find that hard to believe

and this would have to be bull shit....

"the RC211V runs an electronic steering damper. Both bikes are exceedingly stable as a result, and they both lock-up the steering when doing third-gear wheelies."

Come on Chum, get out there and pull some third gear dingers and tell the steering locks solid!!! haha

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
