Man... sounds like you folks are really ***** whipped! Over here you just get a fine, but I suppose if they really wanted to be dickheads they could take your bike, seems they do what they want anyway. Maybe it's time to stand up for ourselves, I mean, if theres no one in front of you and no one on the back of the bike, who are you going to hurt but yourself. They let us drink and smoke, but I suppose, they can't tax a wheelie
I was speaking purely factually HAP, I am not really trying to stir you up. I am not so secretly hoping you have a look at the DukeR which is rumoured to be coming to the states before you commit to another 675R. There were two 675R mounted riders in the "fast/medium" group (next level up is race licensed riders only). We were sparring most sessions. We had a couple of chats between sessions. One of the 675R lads thought his bike was naff at commuting, so after I cleaned him up at one of Australia's only 2 GP worthy tracks, he vowed that a Kato dealership was on his list of places to visit this week.
I am by no means the fastest in the group HAP - not even close, there is some unbelievable talent at these events. I am not even middle order in the fast/medium group. Actually, this trackie was my first knee-down experience - I popped a cherry on that count - so I am pretty high still from the emotions of the day.
This bike gives you unfair advantages and makes you look a whole lot better than you are. If it's not obvious, I haven't bought the shot yet.
