Fuck sportbikes.
Is it really even a motorcycle if you can't ride it offroad?

Look how much the OP will save MC companies.

Since loaded adventure bikes (I'm starting to really hate that term) can run circles around them, they can just stop producing sport bikes. Why build a sport model when a two up 1200cc dirt bike can embarrass the crap out of them.

Look for the OP on the pole at the next MotoGP race.

That's the spirit. Pavement is so overrated.

Wow better than 10,000 hits, made you look\blink. Some of you guys remind me of the teachers pets back in school, ill bet you are even more fun in person. I didn't say that i raced, passed or any thing the like . I held to the right as Jonny Rocket #1 and #2 blasted by and the third bike left a gap, i held with them for a short time then the third guy went by smoothly. I guess that i had them at a disaivantage, had the GPS on and could see the curves comming up. Sorry if i laid a egg here.

My sport bike may not be good riding offroad, but it does enjoy napping in the woods!

Congratulations on your partial recovery from the beating your pillion gave you. I am, however, sorry to see how it affected your spelling.

Wishing you a quick & full recovery.

Oh, & just a hint. Watching the gps instead if the road is not the fast way 'round.

There, I fixed it for you. That way you don't look like an idiot for correcting his spelling.

DG, I am shocked that you neglected to condemn Huzband's abortive use of the ampersand.

I suppose you are just excited about your new bike, they’re fun bikes. I just cold not understand what was so great about what you did.

Depending on the rider you can beat a sport bike in the twisty’s on your GSA.
