Which of these two is more fun?





Up high or down low? Not faster, cooler, better nor brand, cc's, or any of that. Which is more fun?

Depends on what type of riding you prefer. Cruising , upright , hauling ass with better handling , forward lean. At speed the wind pushes on you , holding you up and taking weight off your arms. On a cruiser your a parachute in the wind.

Having road raced a motard, and being a current owner of a fuglystrada, I'll pick: yes.

Personally I don't like clipons. Not necessarily because they're uncomfortable, but because I can go just as fast without them, and I like the extra leverage, and being really able to sit upright during heavy breaking (with regular bars).
But as great as the fugly is, I still don't think if pick it if given the choice of a "real" sport bike for track duty.

Both are cornering on pavement, so they're tied for second to last. Just ahead of going straight on pavement.
