I think they goofed something in the codebase. A backslash is an escape character in alot of different languages and I think they're escaping the escape character so that it displays.

Buy two bikes and teach the wife how to ride. More comfortable and fun for all parties involved.

Might as well throw in too, A Vfr or a Bandit 1200, ZRX or older Daytona should be a compromise between outright performance and comfort.

I had an 02 VFR for about 2 years. It was my second bike vs. my 77 HD Low Rider. When one had to go, I had to keep the classic. But man, I miss that bike still. One day when I get ahead again I will have another. The best part was the way the variable cams kicked in. It was like having a 4 barrel carb...or maybe like a turbo lag.

And the good part about that setup is that you can speed away from the bytch when necessary.

...and you'll have two bikes. The only thing better than having two bike would be three bikes.

I had a 2003 SV1000S and the ergos sucked. Pretty much the same as the GSXRs. My wife hated to ride on the back of that thing and my wrist would kill me after taking pillions. It is a good sport bike for fairly cheap though, and a full fairing is available for it. You are right...the motor is one of the best out there.

I have a sprint st now and it is worlds better in terms of comfort. My wife likes the sprint alot better that the SV, and the big triple is plenty sporty for me. I liked the VFR too, but the motor is REALLY anemic compared to the sprint. Interestingly, she still says she liked the pillion on the CBR954RR alot, though not as much as the sprint.
