Talking of GB mag tests, this Wednesday 4th Feb, MCN will publish a full blown definitive head to head test between the Ten-R the 04 Blade and the 04Gixxer 1k, as follows: -

1. On the Dyno (Dynojet 250)
2. Top speed runs
3. Acceleration
4. On the road ability comparison

I just canít wait to see how the Kawa compares, though itís a shame the R1ís not available yet Ė I wonder what it has up its sleeve??

Iíll try to scan and post the article as soon as possibleÖ.. :D :D
Hey G, whenever your ready to scan we are ready to read!

Well I think it was a test for best "road" bike. Or so it seemed to me. And its a set of two different standards for each. When I got the 636 the reviewers were saying it's an ok, to bad street bike. But a great bike for the track. They were right. It was uncomfortable as hell, wiggly on the street, but total bliss on the track. All I care about now is how it performs on the track. I can take care of the other aspects by myself.
