The thing looks alien next to any bike. It's mindblowing how advanced it looks, compared to everything else.

Here's the article, which summarizes this entire R/R quite nicely I think. A couple paragraphs didn't survive editorial review, a few sentences were distilled, spelling was "Englished" and a couple typos appeared, but overall the article is as it was written.

Back when I first started riding streetbikes, I read every motorcycle-related magazine I could get my hands on, with Bike and Fast Bikes my magazines of choice. Whereas American journalism attempts to be as objective as possible, Euro magazines tend to be far more direct and honest. It's bikes they're reporting on after all, not foreign policy--no reason to 'Dan Rather' everything, ya know? Worth picking up if you've never read one--and Bike is available in iTunes' newsstand.

Here's it is from the iPad reader:

Thanks for all the positive comments, guys.

Flying Z--I can only assume you're accusing me of photoshopping the coyote picture? Good eye on you. Yes, I photoshopped a pole out of the background and I feel terrible about deceiving everyone. Let the truth be told! The coyotes, in fact, are quite real.

Now with the video of the coyotes below proving the existence of said creatures will you double down and claim that the fuzzy bastards are animatronic?
