I generaly like Sport Rider magazine and usually find it pretty good, but they really dropped the ball (IMO) in their Bike of The Year issue (Decmeber). I mean, holy sh!t. How could they leave out the Mille R, GSX-R 750, Ducati 996s, or even the FZ-1? At first I thought maybe it was new bike of the year, but the R-1 and 'Blade are pretty much carryovers from last year. Wanna read a thorough, thoughful, and well written "bike of the year" comparison, check out Superbike magazines October issue.
