Anyone seen a riding review of the '08 1000RR?

Just wondering. Haven't seen a magazine article on the new Honda liter yet.

Looks like a ZX that went head first into a bus. To each his own. Friend of mine saw one at the bike show a couple months back here in H-town but even he wasn't too impressed (and he's a Honda NUT!!!.......the left one I think). He did say that it is VERY small. Much smaller then the 07 and prior fireblades.

Haven't read anything on the 1000rr yet, but I saw this in the latest Cycle World. It was so strange looking, I'm super intrigued. I have to ride it!
