I guess that this shyster will be the safest guy on earth with his loud pipes and 15-under-the-speed-limit riding style... 'cause, you know, speed kills!



Wait a second. That would make cruisers, not sportbikes, the safest bikes in the world! Sportbikes = fast = deathtrap = you WILL die while riding one. Cruiser = noisy = slow = safest bike = you will live forever.



P.S. How are my internet skills? Annoying enough?

I don't know about where you live, but here in Houston, honking your horn is taboo. If you honk your horn, or beep your motorcycle horn, and your life is not in immediate peril, then it soon will be.



Beeping just to say "I'm here, please don't change lanes, pull out of that driveway, etc. right now" is as good as saying "please shoot me."

As long as you can find Google and Wikipedia on the internet you can be an expert on everything.

Rode in this morning, 37 degrees and dry with my gen-u-ine Triumph fleece pullover under neath and was warm as toast.



I think it's a Darwinian thing, if you live in a cold wet climate and want to ride all year, you develop (after years of Guinness consumption)

a layer of subcutaneous insulation around you vital organs and a closet full of Polar-Tec garments to wear under your riding suit.



That way you stay warm without all the fuss and bother of plugging in electric garments.

Default More Nonsense.. Fact: Speed kills

You should be on Faux News. Nice try but still wrong.

Some facts and data for the Weasels.


[*]Cruisers can go fast
[*]He didn't say he rides slow, that was your assertion
[*]Sportbikes vs Cruisers safety: If driven within all traffic laws a Sportbike is safer. It is more agile and has better brakes
[*]One more time: Speed is a major factor in accidents because of two things reaction time and a geometric increase in kinetic energy for every increase in speed



Seruzawa go do the homework I suggested. Calling me names like Kook or distorting the facts doesn't change the laws of physics. Ke=1/2*v*v

Kinectic energy increases with the square of the velocity (speed). More kinetic energy more damage. [b] Let it go and just admit I am right. You are starting to look pathetic.

The Equation is:



KE=1/2*m*(v*v)



I thought you were an Engineer?

The sacrifices we make for our sport, those skinny boys don't realize the safety factor of extra road hugging weight.



Those wrap around grip warmers take the

'comfort zone" down another 10F+ easy...

Sweet Jeebus, another loud pipes thread...



And here I was hoping for a first report on the Ducati 1098, apparently MO wasn't invited to the intro?
