It's amazing really how many advancements have been made in such a short time.

Whats scary is that in another 26 years or soo, that 1000rr will probably look dated(from a technological standpoint).

I just can't imagine how much more they can do to them. We'll see.

WOW they've come a long way in 26 years
What's that on the RS1000 coming off the front caliper bracket and attaching to that arm on the fork leg???
Is it some sort of antidive system????

Not really a direct comparison since the Ride Smart was not a production-based motorcycle. The CB900F (1025) that Freddie rode is more like apples to apples. The Ride Smart is still ubercool, however.

Whats interesting to me is how much closer to a factory racebike an off-the-lot CBR1000RR is, compared to what you could buy at the dealer 26 years ago.
