Na, that's ok. He doesn't have the people skills that I prefer. Best of luck to him though.

We can't all have the right mind for a forum or social encounters for that matter...

Glad you cane back from where you were, you seem to be having a lot of fun with it and cracking some good jokes.

Unlike other people trying to take their frustrations out on others...

Motards are faster than you'd think. Also, in this bike's case it's riding a slow bike slow. Super heavy, drum brakes front and rear, mismatched wheel sizes making good tires impossible to run, RSU suspension, 16k miles on a worn 250 single, etc. If you want a supermoto buy a supermoto not a clapped out old honda.

you obviously have no sense of adventure or imagination.

Motards are like any other bike, some are slow, some are fast, some are a POS,
The common feature....they all evolved from dirt bikes.

What does that have to do with it?

All you need is a tiptoe. If it falls over, oh well. They are designed to take a crash.

Story:

I have a 29" inseam...on a good day.
Was out on the 640, I affectionately named LuCy4 (KTM LC4 640 E)
My riding buddies and I just came out of the woods and we are sitting at a light.
All of the sudden I feel a sideways "gust of wind" and I start going over. Now this bike has a 37.5" seat height. Guess what happened? Yup, buddy kicks my stumpy legged self over.......green light, off cagers...all I could do was laugh my off. Only damage, some irate female came into the pizza joint and bitched at us about up traffic, with illegally plated dirt bikes and she was gonnna call the cops on us. We just busted out laughing again.

The trick is....dont stop, or learn to trials ride the thing
