Want to, but too much going on right now. Lots of projects with deadlines.

It's an indication of a bike's ability to accelerate which happens on a few rides

Do you understand the difference between capable and comfortable?

It won't be a CBR, that's for sure, but I will be getting another bike. I wanted something more appropriate for riding on the street and commuting, which is why I sold mine.

Maybe it will have a "C" and a "B" in it

Why wasn't your bike appropriate?

You've got a point. Difference is, though, there aren't too many good motorcycle roads between Houston and Hot Springs, so it's pretty much two days of superslabbing to and from. Getting to the Sisters on back roads can be 1/2 the fun.

I'm 6'4" with back/hip problems.(old accident where I mentioned I quit riding like 'that' at age 17) The bike had clip-ons, pegs that were way too high and an uncomfortable seat that puts pressure on your hips with the only replacement options being not much better. Super fun on weekend rides, but that only accounts for maybe 5% of the riding I was doing.

I could have modified it, but it made more sense to just get one that was designed to be more comfortable from the ground up.

Ah, then maybe it will have a "N" and "C" in it.

I think you must have. A lvl 3 rider shouldn't be in over his head at a lvl 2 pace. Same concept with my triple, but not post.
