Those "narrow focus sportbikes" are a 100 times more comfortable than a KTM Duke and a lot more practical too. With 500-600 miles days comparing a Duke to a GSX-R600 is like comparing the GSX-R to a BMW R1200GS.



I recommend the experience though(500 miles day on a KTM supermoto). You'll need crutches to get off, but if you were on the right roads, the grin will stay for a week.

Where's the genius that compared a GoldWing to a Miata?

Amen. The number one rule for road riding (behind assuming you're invisible) is to hold a little back until you can see how the corner turns out. You don't get fixated by things you don't want to hit if you're trying to see as far around the corner as possible. As soon as you see the end of the corner, you can generally get back on it without danger.

A friend of mine is prone to pontificate, "Haste makes road paste," however, in this instance, it might be more appropriate to assert, "Annoyed acceleration fosters fern fertilizer," because that fine flyinÂ’ fellow most assuredly expelled some organic compost through his tightly puckered tailpipe the instant his wheels left the shoulder and gave into greedy old Mr. Gravity.

That's a very good question. I wanted just plain Dangerous Dave, and they said I couldn't have it. Story of my life.
