Lol. Just for a challenge I lay on the tank on my back to control it upside down.

I saw some idiot this afternoon riding down the interstate at 70 or so stradling the tank with his legs swinging in the breeze wearing shorts & sneakers.

I took 1 on tuesdayand i loved it.I rodea new 600 prior and i was happy to give that back as my wrists were screaming within a couple of minutes.I rode the thou for a longish ride AND no aches at all,just sadness that i couldnt afford 1.Although i still think the hornet/919 is a far more practical bike as i only speed most of the time.

I don't think I could own any of the repli-racers without replacing the bars and seat as soon as I got it home. The 1KRR sure is a blast, but it's just too track-focused for me.
