A Classic!

I'm always on the look out for that bike. Never to be able to find one when I have the cash to buy it...lol.

I actually love the Moto GP format now where moto 2 has no electronics and they still lap with in 10 seconds of the GP guys.
I hated when all the electronics were first added to literbikes. Everybody thinks they can ride one now using the dumb button and traction control without first learning proper throttle control.
I tell them my bikes got wheelie control and their eyes open. Then they say, oh you back off the throttle. No, it's my right foot. Takes them awhile to figure it out.

Hey Kope, don't worry about me. Just an old fart romanticizing.
Electronics are definitely a tool that can help you. I'm just thinking of a friend that will barely break a hundred on the straight with her 600 but thinks she needs a literbike cause she rides her old mans R1 on the street. False security for some

Good to see your bike running again.

Question.... I see a lot of people that ride larger CC bikes on the street race on 600cc bikes. Why is that?

well I've always experienced that personally I am faster on a 600 than a big CC big.. the smaller bikes are easier to ride faster. more forgiving.. plus im not a pro. so I cant honestly use the additional power to my advantage so the time difference that a big bore big would give me.. you are constantly in the higher RPM range.. they are easier to turn in.. quicker to brake and so on
on the streets you stay in the lower to mid of the rpm range so a bigger bike gives you better street performance.. your not revving to the moon to get from light to light..(country and back roads aside)

there are other reasons im sure.. but these are mine
