    I grabbed a copy of the new dirtrider with the reviews and it sounds like they liked YOUR entry. I haven't had time to read all the articles but I was impressed with one theme in the article.

    QUOTE from the Dirt Rider Magazine article:

    I was honored to be chosen to test this bike. Not only because it was functional in every way intended, but after I scoured the message boards after testing I came away just as impressed with DRN's members and their unusual Internet attitudes. Not once did I find a smidgeon of smack talk toward any other bike throughout their threads on the project. Not once did I see an out-of-context remark blown out of proportion. No, as I lurked through their pages of content I felt like I was in an informative, mature meeting place where people could share their views and opinions- very rare in the internet world today. Other boards should take notice.

    The Dirtrider.net/Service Honda CR500AFX is a bold blend of old and new, crazy and smart, Silly and functional. Sort of, I suppose, like the internet message board it came from. Good job DRN, you built a helluva bike out of what most people consider a dead horse, and you gained a new message board member: Me.

    Once again everyone on the board, thanks for showing what we truly are here at DRN :cool:

    I've been checking my mail box daily looking for the new issue.

    I enjoyed watching the bikes come together at all of the sites involved.

    There is no telling how many hours of my life I have wasted day dreaming and talking to riding buddies about what the perfect bike would be if money was no object.

    Bless the delivery of scanned pages! Pretty awesome article and contrary to what I thought would happen it appears they were pretty straight forward in their comments. Just as the original intent was put forward the bikes were reviewed as a whole and not "against" each other in come kind of competition. They called the good and the bad of each and while it might not be the result everybody was hoping for it does seem to be an honest presentation of what they experienced.

    pat on the back for me? No way, it's for the DRN'ers, Service Honda, Eric Gorr and Jeremy Wilkey. Everyone that was involved KNOCKED-IT-OUT.
