Excellent article in April 11th issue of MCN about 60 years of Suzuki. Especially the full blooded 1998 GP RGV500 vs 2012 GSX-R1000. Interesting read.

hi, if this "comparison" was written by a guy called michael neeves (a guy who admitted he couldnt ride a privateer harris yamaha but still gave the bike a poor rating ) then i could bet my house the "winner" will be the placid, ugly gsxr.

you have to watch him, he was one of the guys who promoted the death of the 2 stroke and now he runs about on bikes the guy on the street who is the real 2 stroke enthusiast could only dream of.

an example guys, he tested a fantastic made to measure sheene replica a few years back and he ended it with a smile and said these words "hardly a gixxser though"

you can maybe see why i dont buy their paper with their token 2 stroke article they produce :mad:
