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.

pretty fast, especially considering how many brake markers he missed
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 :thumbup


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).

I race 250 gp bikes... people who have never raced against one have no idea what they can do...
Very hard to get the most out of, but when you figure it out they are the best bikes out there. A little shot coming across the rail lines of a pretty well known road race :)

Ummm.... we were talking about 250-300s. Not GP 250s. Not the same ballpark, barely the same sport.

But nice thread revival :thumbup

I'm fast, but also experienced enough to know I'm not "that" fast. But watch any of my track videos. You'll see a common theme. I get roasted in the straights and by turn 2, I'm back on their ass. I feel like I'm maxing out my 600, but I also know there's more speed there to find. I'd love to try out a 300 on the track.

Anyone who is bored with their first bike that is a 300/400 ninja, r3, or ktm 390, needs to ride it a lot more. Anything will be boring on the freeway. Take those little guys on the twisties for maximum fun.

I will always stand by the statement its more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow or at least well under its capability. Its so much fun to push it on a 250, wish I had the space to have one in the stable.
