They also save your leg from being shattered when you are sideswiped by a car. I know this from experience.

Yeah it is - well lifting it will anyway. I don't do any off road stuff, but since I shove around half a ton every day, I have a different perspective on "heavy". I just like giving these guys with the 350lb sport bikes a hard time when they about weight.

Meh- i'd still take the 1200. More power is never a bad thing.
