Default Who here works for "Motorcyclist Magazine" ...Conflict of interest !!!

This weekend I received my copy of the Motorcyclist and on the cover they had a screenshot of the D675R and MV F3. So I skipped to the comparison review, waiting to see how the F3 owns the D675R. To my surprise and relief, the whole review went on to say how the D675R is a great bike in every aspect, the only exception being in the beauty pageant department. After reading the article, it seemed like something that would have been lifted straight from here. So, who here decided to freelance for Motorcyclist and forgot to mention that they might be bias as they own a Triumph already ???

As if my ego trip boost couldn't been any better, I found out from the new "Sport rider Magazine" that my Q2 are the best tires on the market....

I think he is just shocked when journalists post an honest, unbiased an accurate opinion of something - it's just so rare that it is hard to believe. But you KNOW it's the truth.

I think MCN has a video comparison where the 675R is the winner too. It's a better rider's bike.
