Default Re: Sportbikes don't kill riders. Riders and Cruisers kill Riders

Car needed to get to work and around/15,000



Car + Unnecessary motorcycle for fun and unwinding/20,000+1000/yr insurance+500/yr maintenance+300helmet+300leather jacket+200leather pants+120 summer mesh jacket



Point: no point in discussing price ratios of frivolous activities. Kind of like arguing over the price/performance ratio of a Bentley vs. a Ferrari. If you can afford it buy which ever one you want, they both stop, go, and turn, what does it matter?

Default Re: Cruiser sales stats. Sport bikes are safe bikes

Only safer if you ignore the human element. ie, the temptation to go really fast cuz ya can. Statistics overwhelmingly show that people die/vegetize on 600's a lot more often.



I'd still take the 636 any day. Hell, any of the big 4. ;D

I think you're just trying to put a good face on it. Kook get's very few replies (compared to yesteryear) from what I've seen.

Not to oversimplify things, but Yossef Rocks! And no, I will not be buying a gixxer. Just commenting on the quality of the article.

If you were invited to attend the launch of the new CBR, and have ridden previously at Phillip Island, I'd say that the odds are pretty good that you ARE a faster rider than most of the people that post comments on this site. VWW

Who put down 600's in this thread? The worst anyone said is that it was too hard edged for everyday use. I think this outcry aganist the midsize sportbikes is all in your head.

Hey Buz, don't be mad just because when I said I liked Kpaul, and on the same token Sarnali and Seruzawa, I left you out. You're just not as funny as the other guys.



On a more important note, I'm not Kpaul. I m, however, the great proponent of the Ninja 250.

I can attest to fact that you are not me. Buz is so paranoid of me he sees me everywhere. He calls me Brokenlink sometimes. Buz slipped one time and admited to know a lot of bout mental illness.
