Re: A little perspective.
I have many years on mc and I use to race them and what I believe is the common problem is that the vast majority are trying to get mc performance out of these simple underpowered toy like engines. I use mine conservatively because its not really designed to take any real punishment. But there will always be guys that are going to push it for all it's worth. Some young guys get there little japanese cars set up with loud exhaust pipes trying to make like they have a hot rod when all they really accomplish is there lack of reality, they don't see how foolish they really are. If you use the bike in a commuter fashion and not try to impress your friends with speeds that will surely get police to notice, you'll be better off.
