2.
and the braking times.....that has to be way off....heres the conversion to ft for all the americans
honda=159.7688 ft
k=159.0472
s=159.0472
t=165.0496
y=163.8688

does this even sound reasonable? cause to me it doesnt....im not saying their results are innacurate....but my trailblazer can do a 70-0 stop this fast....if not better....and thats WITH 33"s on it......
1 is just a really good measure of a bikes low to midrange grunt and gearing.
2 I think you'd be surprised how long it takes to COMPLETELY stop on a bike, not bleed speed, STOP !!
Try it on your bike, but use a runway

Fat is good

Bike(s):
'07 600rr aka "The "









Sounds about right too me. I have always been a Honda guy but when the 2007 R6 came out I almost bought one. The main reason I didn't is because compared to all the new mods and general comfort of the 07 600rr AND the fact the R6 made me feel like I was straddling a fat chick.

Brand loyalty, the fact they stepped up their game huge with the 2007, and the fact I don't like riding the fat chicks...it was an easy choice!

I know what you are saying, I was just making reference to all the folks out there who are all about the GSXR, GSXR, GSXR

and all the other people who go out and buy them without doing any of thier homework just because it's a GSXR...

Not all of them but they definetly out number the folks that buy one for the right reasons.....


and as far as the R6 being a little wide, I am a bigger guy so it gave me plenty of seat space for my fat

but for me I like the position of the 600RR and that will probobly be the next one

True that. A bike is owner fit and brand preference.
