I can argue against most of those picks except for Motorcyclist of the year. A bunch of us were just talking about how Miguel Duhamel just keeps kicking butt after all these years.
I like the pick for best touring bike the fj1300. I seen one of them compete at a local dragstrip and the bike kicked butt. Seriously, one would never think it was a touring bike the way it ate up everything except the haybusa.
I've seen an ad that said that R1 is the Motorcycle of the years in Europe
Yeah, and the CBR1000RR wins in the UK! :confused:
They sure do love the 'ol Fireblade across the pond.
how come they don't pick gixxer is the best bike for the last 3 years.
Holy dig up an old thread batman!
No doubt. Isn't there a ticket or something you can issue him for that? Oh, wait, I've done it too. Only it wasn't THAT old.
