There's nothing new or revelatory about this. It is quite common for people on "fast" bikes to get around more slowly than people on "slow" bikes.



The liability of the super high HP bikes is that they can be so dangerously fast and require such skill to ride fast that the riders end up being slower than other riders on "slower" bikes that are easier to ride fast.



Too much HP can make someone a slower rider. Seems weird, but it is quite true.

I always feel like a doofus when I say, "It ain't the bike." Fred's delivery rocks. Feeling like I don't fit in (sometimes) bothers me, but the talented Mr. Rau uses his independence like a...well, like a good rider uses his bike.



So, why do I still lust after bikes like cinnamon rolls after midnight?

"riding a hyper-bike amounts to digging in at the plate against Randy Johnson.
"




I like that. Really puts some perspective on it.

You have to put years in the gym before you can do that. Come on, you know better!

Very nice article. I remember back in 99 when I succumbed to temptation and rolled out of the dealer with a new Hayabusa. No regrets as the bike was amazing in a lot of ways, but the best thing I did with it was take a CLASS school and start learning how to ride. It became clear early on that the instructors were riding very fast and very easy. That's when I realized that technique was more important than horsepower. So now I ride a V-Strom on the street. Once you learn how to carve corners well, you can carve pretty decent with most any "knife"......and before I sound too practical, I also have a great fast noisy RC51 for track days!

I have to work on my street talk, I'm losing major cred.
