Sportbikes definitely change the way you think about motorcycles. Try spending a month on sportbike (I bought a cbr600rr last July) and then get on a dirt bike. You feel completely retarded and have to relearn how to ride it again.

Indeed! Every MOron should spend some time on a dirt bike. You might even be a convert!

Rented the silver vfr from PMC last year, only had it for one afternoon but i was able to ride up US 1 all the way to point Reyes and back, nice road and scenery and the drivers pull over for you! I highly recommend them.

Default The end of the GPTB

I love it.. Looks like Honda should set up sportbike test rides at Sturgis.. To me a 600 cc sportbike is the safest and best value in motorcycling...This story help vindicate my view... Now I can add that a 600 sportbike is also has the largest fun factor...



So long GPTBs trade in your Harleys while you can still get a good price..

One difference is that a person who learned to ride on a 600 Supersport like me will not want a cruiser after taking a spin on one. I rode a Sportser and a Honda Shadow and I am so glad I have a sportbike.. Feet forward sucks. I rode a standard i.e. Buell (old one) and I agree there is something to said for the standard riding position...

Well shipmate, by calling all Sailors inept riders you are admitting that you are an inept rider also. Don't be the person who promotes the steryotype!
