Not saying my knowledge is gold but, I have rode a few liter bikes and I would say all of them could easily pull the wheel in 3rd. Did not know 02/03 bikes where considered that old but, a 98/99 R1 will do the same thing. Ask any of the guys on here who ride them. How do I know.... well I have riden a couple of them.

Odds are very much against him...but as I said before. If said rider is willing to be patient and learn at his own pace, instead of rushing...uses common sense while on his brand new liter bike. Practices alot and focuses on the fundamentals of riding. I'd imagine he'll do pretty well...

No, part of the problem is...........the idea that the ONLY way is MY way and any other way is stupid:eh:

It ALMOST sounds like taking the MSF course on 250's is a waste of time, since very few go home and RIDE a 250 everyday. Maybe MSF classes should be done on Liter bikes?

is it the only way, no

is it the best way, yes

to bad many more don't go home and ride 250's, we'd have a nation of better riders, like the rest of the world. and yet we have what we have. a land of poor riders who ride very little and crash alot.

I don't understand why that would be the case seeing as experience can only be calculated by time spent on bike.

Exactly...I'm not disagreeing wit you folks...I just happen to feel very strongly about generally assumptions and general statements like those that I have been seeing...

That sounds like something fun to watch!

There was a lady in the MSF class I took that looped her 125 cruizer. :eh:

its like taking your friends G/F out.........you know you wanna do her (aka ride hard) but you can't cuz she's not "yours"

you prolly didn't ride your friends bikes as hard as you do yours, cuz you didn't want to pay off their bike. so you tippy toed around.
