I get to hit the power peak in every gear, speed shift, tuck in, brake late and hard, and go full throttle out of turns ALL THE TIME.

If I had a bike that broke the speed limit in 1st or 2nd, I would just get locked up!

I am the guy who could not resist lofting the front wheel at 80 mph.

Yes, locked up.

Even on my old 700 Nighthawk S when I was loafing, when I'd glance at the speedo I was doing 75-80 mph. Just too easy to go too fast without realizing it. Not done so often on a 550 street bike or a 650 on down dual sport. The feel usually warns you.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
