Simply the level of prep that goes into a Factory racebike. Notice that all six faces of the bolt are drilled and that all six of the holes are exactly the same spacing, depth and length. Also, check out how clean the metal is around the base of the bolt and in the casting pores of the swingarm. It's minor stuff, but very cool on that anal / Zen level. -Sean

I wish I could still fold myself up to fit these things. I rode a good friend's new CBR 1000RR a few weeks ago. KA-POW! It was like being able to teleport one's self forwards in space and time.



I could actually afford to add the 600 to my "garage band", but how can I shorten my height & get more movement in the football damaged knee ( at least I know how I can lose 40 lbs w/o cutting off my head!)?



Gee, I'll never fit these things and Santa can't help either.



Back to Sport Touring Purgatory. Not a bad place to end up - really.

Don't feel bad, I'm in the same boat except I have a Toyota induced limp instead.



My size and arthritis conspires to keep me off full on sportbikes these days, Just when they're getting better and better, Oh well.. I had my fun.



I'm fortunate that Standards, Adventure tourers and Sport tourers are getting better and better as well

So the ZX6 is lithe and nimble, while the ZX10 is a bloated, fat pig?

Amen, brother!

Uggg, Toyo limp. Yikes!

Ditto on the sentiment re Stds, etc. Looks more and more like an Adventure bike might join Mikies garage band. A new golden age - I can live with that!

I'm guessing a Tiger or Vstrom would work, lots of Forest Service roads 'round here
