To be honest with you the Honda i bought is !

On my R6 I would run with you & Jimmy in the front, with this Honda .... ask Jimmy and the others what happened last weekend! I could barely keep up! was running wide every turn, does'nt turn in sharp, no diving into corners, sits funny - i could go on and on.

I'm gonna slab some Michelins on it and adjust the suspension with Ohlins internals and then give it a fresh start again..

For now - Honda's are POS

With the 190 55 on the rear and going 1 tooth down in the front and Patrick setup my suspension I love how my bike handles even with stock suspension. I guess just takes some gettin used to. I agree when I rode the ZX10 it dived into the corners alot easier but I'm so used to mine now I love it.

I'll be going up there on Saturday night to instruct Sunday. I have a 20ft enclosed trailer with limited space if someone needs a ride from the Houston area.
