Well cruisers vibrate more and put more pressure on the seat, so obviously it is a hurried process in cruiser riders.



Enjoy your hwang! Ride a sportbike! *wince*



...even I can't say that with a straight face.

I can see it now. Sturgis will be sponsored by Cialis and Enzyte.

Of course, this is also coming from the country where men don't get turned on unless it involves schoolgirls, slimy alien tentacles, rubber straps, and produce.

Well HELLOOOOO.....



If you're going to launch yourself off a mountain, wouldn't you WANT to be going 100 instead of 75?

Well balanced analysis. I am going to keep my K5 Gixxer. It is an excellent machine that is fully capable and beyond my ability to fully exploit its potential. The K7 is great but I will just continue to take care of my K5 and upgrade its suspension, etc., as it needs it. I have ridden the Honda and although it is very rideable, I prefer my Gixxer at the track. Fact is, the K7 as ridden by pros is winning the vast majority of AMA and WSB and various other races. So unless you're a worldclass rider, any of these bikes is more than enough for the remaining 99% of riders. Even then the differences are measured in tenths. Pick whatever bike feels right and then take it to the track to ride it like it was designed to be ridden.

As a Japanese-American I take umbrage with your comment.
