Perhaps NY should just legalize lanesplitting and then there'll be no problem. Might just ease that traffic congestion a little as well.

Oh, and First Post!!

Re: Look at me Perspective

a six houndred supersport is far less of a beginers bike than my 955 triumph speed triple, for starters they make very similar peak hp and unlike the triumph the i4 screamers make it like a lightswitch, coupled with lightweight and superman handling this is a recipe for disaster, a true beginners bike may be more along the line of a 500 ninja, or the variety of 250 standard/ cruiser types. perhaps a dual sport thumper, while tall, they are light, easy to handle and have friendly engine charecteristics.

While I agree that very few people need, much less can effectivly ride a modern liter bike, we live in america, land of exess, land of the 8 passenger suv, fully equiped with the single occupancy comuter, 60 in. tvs, pasenger sedans with over 250 hp and a top speed of 140 mph, sport cars with 400+ hp why would motorcycles be any diferent? why do I have a liter class motorcycle?, I don't particularly like to shift like a f1 car, I would rather just roll it on, and the occasional power wheelie past the country club is cheaper than a visit to the shrink and in my opinion much more fun than talking about my mother..
