Yes 30k a year easily, in the last 10 years I've been riding I've done that about 60% of the years.

That includes a CB350, Kawasaki Zr-7, F4i, 1000RR, 600RR ect ect. all have upwards of 60k miles on them now.

And even if I didn't it would have zero to do with the "comfort" of the bike. I swap out bikes every two years for something different. I just don't see your point of coming onto a motorcycle site and saying "ZOMG this will be the next best thing since slice bread"

No it wont. Same reason naked bikes don't sell in America and they sell in Europe. We care too much about looks and speed. Thats just the way it is. People will buy real "motorcycles" way before a scooter just on the simple fact that if you pull up next to someone you're going to get laughed at.

MUCH like prius owner gets laughed at by the guy driving the v8 muscle car. It's just a different lifestyle.

Kuto's to you for enjoying your scooter. But that thing will never go to a track day, it wont keep up on a twisty mountain road or do much of anything that a real true sportbike will do.

Yeah it "can" but put the same good rider on each bike and the SS will outperform because thats it's job.

I have never heard anyone say anything derogatory, only "what is that?". And that says it all.
