Let's see, Pike's Peak is sort of twisty and could be a good indicator of handling capabilities. You might want to check the 2011 race results for the 1205cc class.

Tremendous!

Well done on so many levels:

But the bottom line is, only a FOOL would fall for an abortion like that--regardless of color!!!

Lost appeal? Deflected perhaps. However, we would still consider ourselves 'hardcore', and that's no small victory I'd guess. My take is that trying to civilize an HP2 is a bit quixotic at best;...

In my experience Karoos hook up a little better than TKCs in dirt but are more squirrelly on pavement. Karoo rears last about 1.5k miles vs 2.5 for TKCs. Karoo fronts wear about the same as TKC...

Not an automatic, but you can shift with your left hand. Awesome and exciting bike with fairly low seat height. Might work for you!
