Let me qualify that; I know of guys that ride that fast all the time. And from what I see on hwy 1 this guy will keep all but the nuts in his sights.

Point being, this guy will spank a huge percentage of sport bike riders on a twisty road.

I have used a single cylinder bike as a daily runner in the past and they are great for 'point and shoot' style riding as well as local running. They do not make good long distance bikes but that isn't the point, is it? You mention reliability and that is a good issue to think about. Compared to the 1969 BSA 441 Victor I was using any modern bike is as reliable as an appliance! Thumpers rule! Oh, I still have it after all these years and it still runs. I note the mention of 600 sport bikes. I have a ZZR 600 Kawasaki and it is fun but totally different from the pull of a thumper. Try one!

Thumpers thump, fizzers fizz, growlers growl. Whaddaya want? Anyone who asks anyone else what kind of motorcycle they should buy is a lily-livered milquetoast pantywaist. Reach into your gay back pocket, pull out a fistful of money, and buy whatever the hell you want. "Pardon me sir, would a 324 pound 610cc single cylinder motorcycle be fun to ride?"



"HELL YEAH! BEEEYOTCH!"

He does The Dragon far faster than I did on my FZ6, last time I rode through (but in my defense - I was 2-up w/The Wife).

I thought "610" was the model number, not the displacement? (mem'ry here - plus I know only about these what I've heard from someone else)
