Default Re: How about 0-60-0 test? or a 5-60-0? motorcycles have brakes too right?

Motorcycle Consumer News does 60-0 braking tests on all the bikes they review. It surprising which bikes have the shortest braking distances. It's a mixed bag between very light upright bikes with dual discs (SV650, Monster 750) and very long bikes like the Valkyrie. Very few supersports make the list.

Default Re: R boxers are too funky looking for me

No I don't hate boxers and I think BMW has the proper configuration for a Twin

Default Kawasaki's 800cc AMA Superbike

Just read on the other channel motorcycledaily.com about Kawasakis new 800 cc bike. Supposedly the increased torque will be enough to make it competitive with the twins.

Default Re: Follow up to my query about the GSX1400

It is my understanding that HP = [torque (in ft-lbs) x RPM]/5250



Which is why dyno graphs should always have the TQ and HP cross at ~5200 RPM. Be wary of those that don't. The numbers may be fudged.

Default Re: Defending the VFR, and how Honda will fix the electrical problems for free.

My '97 was alot of fun, comfy, good handling and power, loved the cam gear whine and all, I just felt a little over 20k mi. was too soon to have repair cost's on something as stoneage as a charging system, the first one I took as a fluke, and a chance to sit alongside I-5 for a few hours, when it went again a 44k with the "new and improved " version, I figured screw-it, it's just like my Sabre, only more expensive, That time I had to coast down Chinook pass in the dark till I could get reception on my cell-phone, then wait on my wife to come find me with our pickup, I'm afraid that takes alot of the fun out of a bike for me. Performance wise I had no complaints but I expected more reliability from Honda.

I agree it's real world but how many big bore bikes can you do that on? I tried that once with my bike (ZRX1200) and I found myself looking straight at the sky.
