Suck it up, punk

If you want an R1 without plastic, take the plastic off your R1.

If you strip $2000 out of the purchase price of a bike, while using the same engine and designing it to fit twice as many people's bodies, it will be heavier. Take it or leave it; if you think you could make a better, faster, lighter bike for the same price or less, do it. I'll buy one.

In travelling around, I have noticed that 89 octane sometimes qualifies as "premium." That alone makes me think that a couple points lower compression could be a good thing, if one's bike is fit to travel significant distances.
Crack-addled or Moron?

You've been stealing hits off that english guy's mama's crack pipe, haven't you?
