That was kind of my point. I liked how Cuba and China were above us.

This didn't happen in DC, it happened in Maryland, outside of DC.

It's so amazing. After all these years and the fact that everyone thinks Kook is an idiot he still spews his fantasy crap based on no experience at all. Nada. There is no one on any m/c board in the entire world who knows less and says more about motorcycles than Ksupremacist.

Performance alone does not a safe bike make... It takes both skill and brains to utilize that performance. By your logic, a MotoGP bike would be the safest thing around, regardless of who it's piloted by. I'm not even sure you'd agree with that...



Superior brakes will help a good rider stop faster. They will also flip a panicking newbie onto his head, or lock up and cause a low side.



Agility is often at the price of stability. Come to your own conclusions there.



Safety comes down to the operator utilizing the machine in a manner conducive to safety. What works for one rider may not work for another. Furthermore, conditions will have a drastic influence on this. I would put forth that an ABS equiped sport tourer would be much "safer" than a lighter more agile sport bike under certain conditions, such as rain. There is no one perfect bike. And that's a good thing.

Default Breaking the Code

Years ago in South Florida we had a radio DJ named Phil Hendry. Phil had a "talk" show, and he'd invite "guests" to discuss topics of interest, like traffic, growth, whatever. The "guests" were extremely inflammatory, and people would call the show in a rage, screaming and yelling. The "guest" would lead them down the path...eliciting ever more agitation from the caller. It took a couple of weeks to figure out the "guests" were actually Phil himself. Once you knew that, the show was great fun.



No, I don't think Squidward is Phil Hendry. But I give his posts the same attention I did Phil's "guests." They're mildly amusing, sometimes even funny, but I'm damn sure not calling the show and aruguing with somebody who really doesn't exist.
