Re: Get one of those new Buell Lightning CITYX bikes

In an "Urban" environment? Yes, absoloutely. They are more nimble and deliver their power where you will actually use it. Not to mention the fact that in a hot & humid environment, the LAST thing you want is a fully faired bike.

Nobody is claiming that a Buell or other "standard" is faster than a CBR or GSX-R, all we are saying is that for what this person asked, they are far surperior to a CBR 1000RR or GSX-R 750. -Sean

Vlad,



I agree that a BMW Rockster is a better urban bike than either a CBR or a GSX-R, but the Buells and Monsters have much better midrange accelleration and will leave the BMW for dead from light to light, or when trying to make multiple quick direction changes. -Sean

"MY Protective Gear"

To be truthful MPS, calling a Tank Top, Board Shorts and Flip-Flops "Protective Gear" might mislead some of MO's readers into thinking that the South Beach Diet means losing weight by grinding large sections of meat off your body, while break dancing on asphalt. -Sean
