Now that's adding insult to injury

Must be why all the HD riders swear by their $15k+ no fun cruisers; they have to make up for something eh?

Kudos! to the coolest customer of them all, Curtis A. Why, I'm sitting here next to my R1 spoke pencil holder now--all that was left of Turn 8 off-track excursion. What might have been, sniff...



Hey, how close did the rest of yas come to CA's 26s and 27s eh? O that's what i thought.

...But when is the last time most of us rode on the track???



The Honda is a better STREET BIKE that is also fun on the track and the finish is second to none.

Interesting to note that the bike most of us picked had a powerplant that was the most like a V-twin.



I'm back from Cabo.



Nighty night.

You mean they put them all on Battery Tenders?



Or were you referring to the Honda Scooter Highside-incident?

Can't agree more. I have a 06 R1, if I dont ride it for 2 months it feels like I have to re-learn the mototcycle to allow me to get back up to speed. This takes a good few kilometers for both track and road use.

Thus riding the Suzuki in say C mode for a while then changing to A mode with vastly different power charicteristics can be problematic. Selution, can modes C and B and let your right wrist modulate the power delivery.
