First, I think. It will take a little getting used to the look, but it is kind of attractive for the born to be mild set.

Re: I thought I was clear...

I think we need to quantify what constitutes "bad" brakes in this context. I'm sure gabe was comparing the brakes feel to tyhe other current bikes he's ridden, and from the article, it seems his complaints are centered on feel (wooden) and initial bite (weak), these two qualities don't constitute "Bad" brakes in the sense that they won't stop the motorcycle (which WOULD get you hurt) but rather "of lesser comparitive quality" than other bikes whose brakes bite harder initially and have better lever feel.

I used to ride a Suzuki Intruder 1400, which had both those characteristics which he describes, poor lever feel, and low iniital bite, but they could still howl the tire, given a good foru-finger squeeze, and they never failed to stop me.

It is my opinion that the hyosing brakes aren't "bad" in the "can't-stop-the-bike" sense, ratehr thet they just don't feel as good as other bikes in operation. they'll still get you stopped.
