Not to sound like a jealous git, but WTFC? (who the fark cares)
It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary MC

come-on, seriously...100km/h tucked in on the white line on the highway is not indicative of fuel economy...

ride the bike in the urban cycle under normal commute circumstances and then give figures...

same with long distance.. ride the bike at the speed limit for 3 to 4 tanks.. and then give the average...


it's like saying..."research has shown that 5 out of 10 males secretly like Nathaniel..."
