What is interesting is that he doesn't mention that he chickened out of doing the proper trail riding with us. Very sussed with factoids and anorakspeak. Riding ability? Suffice to say he has been called "Dangerous Dave" and "SuperDave" over the years. (I have done a handful of launches with the maestro) ;)

Nice bike, big price. Ag, as far as Dave Abrahams is concerned there's a bit of bullshitter in most of us. In a sense he writes "real life" reviews for the average guy or someone who is looking to buy a first bike. Sometimes other bike writers get so caught up in their own knee-scraping heroics that it is difficult to find out what the bike is all about. And, uh, Cyril, well, ah, ok you've got me.
