    A few of those are why I ride my humble 650 parallel twin.

    Very relevant article.

    It's a lot more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.

    Not when your lazy like me! Lol
    Actually, I love my r1 for the street, and Abby's bike (which I have to reassemble) for both the street and track.

    Good Article. Two words: VFR 800 ( is that 2 words??). Anyways, my bike is all day comfortable although heavyish but it def has a sweet powertrain, and that great V4 rumble

    I've had 2 1000's hondas during my time. I found the comfortable but I always came back to the 800 +/- cc range. Loved my VFRs great comfort, looks and power. My 848 is my 1st duc and on the first test ride I wasnt too pleased with the riding position and ergonomics but now I feel right at home with it. Agile and fast and could easily do 300+ miles on it in a day if I had a good backpack. Regardless of the make I whole heartedly agree with the article and barring buying something to collect I wont be buying another liter bike... I am sticking with the fast carving knives.

    After 40 years of riding bikes from 50cc (moped) to 1300cc (Busa), i find this article to be Horseshit!

    I love 1000cc bikes!

    Interesting article.

    I agree, MOST tracks will favor a 600 over a liter but... and its a big but... Jennings, I'm sorry, but its half a liter track.

    Now... all things said about how terrible a liter is... I have zero interest in having to wind out a 600 all the time on the street. Its annoying to me as a rider. Ill stick with a liter for the street and have my power and eat it too... all the time.

    Thanks for playing.

    "...unleash the four horsemen of the accelerative apocalypse."


    Loved the article.

    As someone with a well known reputation for being slow, I wonder if I'd be quicker if I stuck with the GS500 for longer. Would LOVE to have one again or a small 900cc - 1300cc cruiser and just ride the snot out of it solo.

    As the owner of a cruiser that could be considered the equivalent of a liter sport bike (2.3L Rocket), it's a happy camper on the highway. At the speeds I normally ride the highway (between 70 and 90) the bike is rock solid and comfortable, no buzzing like a smaller bike and ludicrous amounts of passing power. When the going gets slow, she is quite the handful and makes me miss the old 1300 twin...

    hey again this isnt for everyone, and i already discussed this on FB with some people. Some of the facts of the article are a little far fetched, which i agree with, but overall i think most would agree,
    1. Most modern literbikes are way too much for the street
    2. MOST and i say most, cuz i know some will get booty hurt, but most riders are in over their head with liter bikes, whether it be lack of skill or lack of maturity.

    Bottom line, ride what you love, and enjoy it, the article is not the end all of motorcycling, and its not law... Just an interesting article that i enjoyed and shared.

    Couldn't agree more with the maturity.

    I personally love how other countries handle Motorcycle licensing.

    Start on 50CC and each year you get a CC bump for good behavior.
