No thanks. If I am going to do a track event like that, I would want to do it on my own bike. The riding techniques from a crotch rocket to a naked bike like my speed triple or the 919 would be too different...



In 1915 T. Roosevelt said, in a speech to the KofC, "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "

Not really as I have ridden both in one day. A slight change in body position. The handle bar will give lots of leverage. So when you switch back you may have increase or decrease inputs. The technique is still the same. Corner entry, braking, apex, throttle roll on, and exit.

They've got Super Dukes and 690s for the folks who want to curl up in a larger ball. You do learn more on a bike you can dominate so I would want to run in on the 690.

I would make sure to turn some laps on the RC8 though!

+1 I would run majority of the day on the 690, but for that kind of money I would make sure I ran every bike a few laps.

Please explain your rationale for this line of thinking.
