Default That is cool and funny

That is cool and funny about the Blast outrunning the other bikes just because of rider ability.



I totally agree though, these new squids just don't get it about rider ability and are probably the ones squawking about how their bike is faster then another bike based on a magazine test and not their own prowess.



After seeing my friend who used to race bikes take a stock Suzuki 1400 Intruder and outrun a new squid on his new GSX-R 750 out at Canyon lake road I was a total believer in just how disparate rider ability can be. It seems to make a much greater difference on bikes then it ever does in cars.



Thanks for the interesting post.

Heh heh. McCain Republicans ARE liberals. Heh heh.



I'm just glad that people like you weren't voters back in 1941. We'd still be trying to figure out what we did to make the Japanese attack us.



Back to ignore mode.

My wife is 5'2" and is able to get her feet on the ground on my Honda Magna (with the fork tubes extended above the triple tree an inch). Check one of those out. It's a nice handler and has plenty of power.

I have got to say this. KPaul you suck. You have taken an enjoyabe webstie and turned it to sh#t. I hear enough about politics everywhere else in life, I don't need it here. I have to sift through all your garbage just to read about bikes. MO shut him up! Please.

They're both the same levels of coverage. Both had similar purchase prices. I don't know if the insurance company has a list of performance bikes, but I imagine number of models stolen, incidence of model wrecking, etc. would have more influence than just displacement.

Sadly, they've stopped making Magnas (my first bike), although one might be able to find a 'new' one at the dealership. I bought my '96 in 1998, and it was outstanding. *sniff*

Anyhow, he seems to be looking at new bikes.
