lol

i have actually rode the older ninja 250, a hyosung 250, an 08 ninja 250 and a kawi kfx250 within the same week.

I would ONLY take the 08+ ninja over the "enertia bike" the kfx was the slowest, with the older 205 and hyosung trying hard to stay ahead while the newer ninja was downright fast in comparison!

I like how they broke down the bikes; sport bikes for speed, dirt bikes for off road and called cruisers built 'just for show.'

allright now, ya didn't need to go there..... 68k miles on my HD and it's never let me down. Of course, neither has any of my past rides.... so that's not really saying much. The only exception was my '06 Triumph Bonnie (design flaw)

I watched it tonight too... I liked it... It did show some good points on different things; maybe not to a lot of yall but for them to actually break it down for the un-informed and they gave it an effort to teach those that dont know too much about bikes.

U didn't miss much. lil red was taking notes like mad. I was playing with my phone and caught the audio. They didn't talk about engineering aspect differences between any brands/types. And when it came to talking about 'power' they were referencing a vtwin.

I agree. The host took the course and talked about cross steering and also broke down to the dynamics of it all. Maybe some cagers watched this.

I was also interested in the numbers of 20% of bike related accidents are from cornering mistakes... I bet those were the ones reported....

yes I was paying attention to it... while you were playing with your phone for an hour and a half! I liked it when he was talking about the helmets and how much it changed the impact of everything from just slowing down just enough that changed everything. I never really thought about it how so many hit their chin first when going down.

Yupper. I think that number is off; especially since almost all the accidents we've had in the forest hadn't been reported. The only ones I can think of reporting are those on public roads w full coverage and fatality. That skews the numbers more. Then again, thinking of cruisers and their ability to get ran over when parked or rear ended all the time increases their numbers.

ya but how often do we actually need someone out there to help us...I have found out more cruisers have more fatal wrecks supposed to sport bikes since they dont wear the proper gear...
