I put this in the Guy's Room only because I don't think the women will care.

I finally got to ride my motorcycle today for about 3 hours instead of just down the road and back. I have a 2010 VFR1200 sport touring bike. Don't let that touring part fool you, a VFR is not an "old man's" bike:


Anyway... This bike has 170 hp and 100 ft/lbs of torque. Do you know what that feels like when you take off? It feels like someone is trying to push you off the bike. Now imagine that you weigh 120lbs less than when you bought the bike! Now it feels like someone is trying to pull my arms out of my shoulders!

But seriously guys, riding the bike is so much easier now than it was just last year. When you aren't trying to force 330lbs through a sharp corner things are a lot less scary. First of all, your tires have better traction. Second, it's like going from 2-up riding back to 1-up.

Can't wait to start racking up the miles this year!

Oh, and if you ride - post a pic. Doesn't matter what you ride as long as your knees are in the breeze.

I know this is an old thread. But I have a Ducati multi 1260. 158 hp. I am pretty stoked to see what it feels like.... I havent riden this year since I started this process. Gonna be fun when I get back on.
