Too many idiots who shouldn't be on one, let alone any motorcycle. Sorta why I stopped riding street, seems like one massive dong measuring competition in the sport bike crowd.
bottom line, I think both of us can agree that ALL sport bikes aren't really street bikes. they're meant for the track, period. 90% (number pulled out of my arse
) of guys who ride sport bikes on the street have never smelled a whiff of competitive track riding. but I do believe for the EXPERIENCED rider, the power band of a liter bike will translate into better usability on the street
BTW, I don't ride either. I'm done riding sport bikes, nor do I track anymore. I've found that the simpler the bike, the happier I am these days.
