Have you guys read the September issue? They declared the YZF-R1 the Motorcycle of the Year and Ben Spies is the Motorcyclist of the Year.

If you read the article it goes on and on about the engine design and setup. I guess they gave it to the Yamaha because they put a new technology on the road and didn't say anything about how it blow everything else in its field away with performance.

I read that a week or so ago. Seems like the mags either rate it 1st or last, never mid-pack. I know I don't want one.

i think the 09 r1 coulda been a lot more potent if it shed it's pudge, and was actually aerodynamic... With a full exhaust system, the bike puts down a good bit of power, altho still not as much as a 'regular' literbike
