If you read the motorcycle magazines, a lot of them will incorrectly state that the 600 class started in 1987 with the introduction of the Honda Hurricane. In reality, it started in 1985 with the introduction of the Ninja 600. Yamaha followed a year later with the FZ600. If you really wanted to nit pick you could kinda say Yamaha started it all in 1984 with the FJ600.

Not to mention the best thing to do in almost any accident avoiding situation is to slow down as opposed to speeding up.

Well, what do you expect from someone who believes the representatives of one of the most repressive regimes on Earth, Vietnam, over 200 plus decorated American vets.



If communist regimes are noted for anything (besides brutal slaughters of large numbers of human beings) it is propaganda lies.

The problem is that we live in a society where it seems that every little special interest group thinks it has the right to dictate the behavior of an entire nation. Not enough regular people say, "Mind your own business" and then throw out the meddling politicians who cater to these interests. So we are faced with a situation where we either must take action to curb the worst excesses of the irresponsible or the govt will come in as it usually does with a heavy handed action that hurts everybody.



Maybe the AMA should promote tiered licensing. I don't know for sure what should be done. But I think something's gotta be done. It's better to be proactive. It tends to make the politicians back off.

I guess the memory is the first thing to go.



Yeah, there were some 600s around but they didn't really take off 'til later, or am I wrong about that too?



When was the first 600 racing series started?

LOL, this guy got so bent out of shape, he posted the same nonsense 3 times in 5 seconds. I bet his hands were shaking the whole time. Obviously, another guy that can't take the facts. Too bad some people need to live in fantasy land to exist.

Default Re: For those that can't read

I'll answer the third post because it didn't make any more sense than the first two. Guess what stupid? Many insurance companies won't insure sport bikes any more and the number is growing every day. There are NO insurance companies that won't cover a cruiser. Sounds like your side is losing. Your examples that you "quoted" from the study say NOTHING of cruisers. There are more types of bikes than a cruiser. But since you supposedly have 23 years of riding experience, which is bullshyt, you would know that wouldn't you? Now, I not only quoted some pieces of the study, but quoted the summary. Are you smart enough to know what a summary is? Good. Lets read the f&cking summary again:



[b]In summary, sport bikes can be considered the highest risk vehicle on the road:

- sport bikes can be very difficult to control

- sport bikes are attractive to less experienced riders

- sport bikes tend to be more frequently used in higher risk situations



While sport bike rates are generally 28% higher than motorcycle rates overall, based

on claims experience they should be as much as 89% higher.[b]



There, I bold faced it in case you can't see again. Can someone as stupid as you wrap your mind around that? That is the summary, the conclusion, the end game. Now I want you to quote in that study where cruisers are dangerous, and that drunks on cruisers are causing all the accidents. If you can't do that then it's time for you to shut the f&ck up, right? As for the Motorcyclist article, they do not quote any source for anything, as I have it right here. They mention briefly the Hurt report of 1981, but unfortunately for you and your stupid argument, they just made the rest up as they went along, kind of like you are doing now. Maybe if you could actually comprehend what you read, I wouldn't need to write this, but morons like you just keep digging a little deeper a little longer. So far your batting zero honey bunch. Try not to get so nrevous next time and only post your stupidity once.

Default The funniest part!

KPaul, the resident genius, doesn't know the difference between a urologist and a proctologist. Yeah, he sure is a superior mind! I just hope he figures out which is which before his next visit!

I guess that depends on your definition of "town." On the roads I commute on - speed limits are anywhere from 45 to 70 mph. So yes - I would guess that I am usually between 4K and 7K rpm.



My point was that on a sportbike, you are hardly ever at 2500 rpm - you'd be lugging the engine at those kind of revs. The comparison of those two different bikes at 2500 rpm was unrealistic.
