I'm only saying sport bikes hold no appeal for me on the road. No matter what they aren't as comfy as just about any other type of bike. The comfort comes with the added performance of the bike, which I won't use on the street. So for ME it's only a cost with no benefit. I will have to say the cbr 600 I sat on for 5 minutes at COTA was the most comfortable one, pannigale 899 was second.

Tsk Tsk, Sooooo how long have you been working for the company?

PS - the front brake setup looks hideous.

Just busting your lol!


You can ride any bike you want on the street. I would rather have a grom right now since i only commute 30 minutes. But i only have a gsxr so i will ride it till the wheels fall of. I rode my last bike till the motor blew at 48k miles lol

Grom would be sweet but can't really do long distance or highway. If I get into street riding again it will be for longer road trips rather than a little commute on surface streets where a grom would really shine.
