Is that like falling off roof of house....doesn't hurt till STOP :fie:The trend now is way too much power... and then you add traction control, wheelie control, driving modes... so the rider doesn't kill himself.
Like that KTM 1290 superduke thing... why put too much power in it... and then $6000 worth of electronics to hold back some of the power? Why not just de-tune it to 130 HP with more torque down low and be f**king happy?
Bikes like the 'Busa and Rocket III have had timing retard in the first couple of gears FOR YEARS so you can't have ALL the power until 3rd gear. Yeah... so the answer is way more power and way more electronics to limit that power.
Do ya know why I bang my head against this post? Because when I stop it feels great!
Lets' see... I could put a bunch of padding on the post so I can bang my head REALLY hard and not hurt myself... or... I could ease up on the head banging. I just can't decide...
Love Busa's. fun to ride even without a turbo but no longer feel the need for that much power. Listening to myself say that is confirmation that I'm just too f**king old.

Humm, just because you can build it doesn't mean you should.
