On the other hand when I came back from Nam I immediately chopped a W650 Ksaki.. 8" tubes, etc. The brakes were so bad and the handling so squirrelly that I'd give better than even money that a modern 600 wouldn't be one bit more dangerous than that flexy 650 with a 2.75 cross section front rim and drum brakes.



And I did manage to throw it down the road on Angeles Crest a time or two. After I got the stainless steel screw in my ankle I figured it was time to slow down.

Been there, done that. I'd advise them to exercise caution but I know from first hand experience that when you are in that mode you DO NOT LISTEN.
