    Agreed though - it is excellent and very comprehensive!
  3. It's been around for a number of years, and we've had the authors approval to mirror it for 2+ years, in it's un-edited form (as we have it). He updates it quite often.
  4. Fair enough. Should provide a link to the original site and/or mention that NetRider have been granted permission to mirror the article on the articles page.
  5. Fantastic guide!! Loved the links to decents books and stats as well. Wish I'd had this when I was looking for mine. It would have saved me many hours of surfing for essentially the same info but located in many different places.
