The guy says: "There was nothing technically wrong with the bike yet for the first time, I felt unnatural riding a two-wheeler." Whaaa?

A vehicle related article in a automoto section of a daily newspaper is crappy. Who would have thought. Lol

She is a regular contributor to the Vancouver Sun's motoring section. I've read many of her reviews, this one was the strangest thing I've read from her. I posted it here just to see if I was alone in going "huh?" to this article.

I'm guessing she won't be ordering one soon though. She did a glowing report of the RT1200R recently, I wonder if that influenced this article?

If she doesn't know why it felt strange to her, she obviously doesn't have a lot of riding experience. If the ZX6R fit her well she may be too small for the Versys 1000. Maybe she should have posted her height and weight like other journalists do.

Sport bike rider? Maybe that is why she did not get it. I don't get the point of most sport bikes. That does not mean they are not good. I just don't get the point of riding a bike designed for the track.

Maybe it didn't give her that "Pucker" factor she was looking for..
