Your claim that it wins in Salmon sounds a little fishy.

Default Re: "rather be in the car"

Sheesh, some people...........

On a race track, or at high speeds on a twisty road then I'd say the sportbike was in it's element and would perform better, However as pointed out you're much more likely to run into trouble at low to mid speeds in town or traffic where a standard or cruiser will be in it's performance element and would perform better.

I'd put more value on the opinion of my gloves than KP's as my gloves have been on motorcycles for almost 15 years and at least 100k miles, while KP has racked up (I believe) at last count 3 years and 25k miles. Since he no longer commutes on his bike, his opinion of emergancy braking in a street enviroment is of even less value.

The Froggies tested a Goldwing against a Fireblade and came up a statistical wash, so our vaunted sportbike can't even out brake a two wheeled Accord, let alone a cruiser,

Looks like troubled times for our hero and his cohort at the Burger Barn.................

The Dragon is only 11 miles long? For all I've read about it I thought it was more than that.

You east coast boy really should head out west and see what real riding is about.
