Re: But a 250/300 isn't fast enough!!!

Hate when people act like they're talented enough for a 600 even. I acknowledge that I would be better on a smaller bike, but on the streets I see many people who ask why I didn't get a 1k. As if the 600 wasn't enough!!! It seems like everybody with a sportbike likes to act like they're neo in the matrix, but all they can do is slam through gears in a straight line or Do power wheelies.

There is a difference here, on the road you can't risk making up for loss of power by not braking until later unless you want to die... for example if you approach a set of lights just keeping it nailed at 60mph past the cars isn't a good approach and you need to slow down in case one of them pulls out. Once the road is clear you can accelerate away again.

You know what's even better than relying on power? Riding strategically and alert. Then you won't have to power out of any situations


Now don't get me wrong, I love the power of my 600 and 106CI V-Twin... But I don't need either in order to be a safe rider.

I never said you needed the power to be safe, you would just ride differently (slower).
