...was conducted Thu, the 30th, at Barber. Looked like at least 2 dozen bikes, all with the rider's names labeled on the subframe. Motojournalists from around the globe, including our own Melissa Berkoff and Sam Fleming. Nate Kern is/was prolly the fastest test rider, making that thing dance on one wheel between corners Wednesday. There's a base model and an M package which includes carbon wheels, a touch more electronics, more of a superbike seat (firmer/shaped pad), etc. I could not get in to "spectate" so, waiting for publication. I hope some of those riders have also been on Ducati's V4R and make some comparison(s). The top of the mountain just got crowded.
