Have you checked reliability, maintenance intervals, and the like? When was the last time you saw engines grenading like they used to do in the 80's? Heck, MY lap times keep getting faster on virtually stock bikes. THe brakes work through the entire session, no fade. The (titanium) valve adjustment interval on my 06 R6 ( yeah, yeah, I know it only turns 16K RPM) is 24,000 miles!!

Want to improve the performance of your motorcycle? Learn to ride!



I had a friend who had a cruiser SuZook ask me if I used the front brake!! ( I ride a BMW RS and a Yamaha sportbike) Say what? THAT my friends is an accident waiting (not for long) to happen.



I took him out to a parking lot and we did some braking drills and got him over his fear of the front brake and now he rides a bit better. Braking and swerving is next! THAT should be interesting!

Wait for the ZX-14 Concours next year. Bags, shaft drive and as they say on the Right Coast "Wicked Fast!" I am tempted to get rid of the BMW and go this route. Heck I really need that power to haul my 140 pounds around!



BTW I have been to the Freddie School - it really is a great educational experience. It changed my riding (for the better) a large amount.
