    I recall mine, it ended up in the hands of a member here. Mind blowing ..... that’s what that bike was. Smoothness, never ending torque. It reminded me of the 600HP electric motors we had in the pulp mill. * *

    Having had owned a busa, there is truth in "no replacement for displacement". The torque and smoothness were incredible.

    Insured my G1K today and took a ride out to Jordan River - casual 150km round trip to shake off the cobwebs and see how the roads look.

    I can't speak for the new S1000RR of course but here's what I can say about the lowly 83ft lbs and 184hp Jizza:

    -It's the first bike I've ever TRIED to thrash a little and was told "Um, NO!"

    Honestly it's 3 bikes in 1:

    4000-7000rpm - no drama just twist and go, very docile and easy to ride. Peppy but not overkill.
    7000-9000rpm - you reeeeally better have your game face on and be paying attention cause shit happens quick, especially from 7500rpm upwards!
    9000-14000rpm - basically unrideable on the street. Totally out of the realm of my capabilities to ride it at that power output.

    That's saying a lot coming from a very experienced track rider.

    It's just my thoughts of course - Your results may vary. Also you've always been a large displacement guy, I've always been a mid-low CC rider so my adjustment phase will be much more noticeable than yours would be I bet.

    Clearly I can drone down the highway at 13,000rpm without drama, just a LOT of noise, but when trying to make time it's actually a detriment for me to have that much thrust on tap - you can't steer as the front wheel is off the ground everywhere and every little input is magnified so safety margins are tiny.

    To make use of it you'd have to be at a track like The Ridge or Pacific - even better Portland but as it is this bike still has noticeably more power than my SS built '05 G1K race bike from a few years ago (81ft lbs and 170hp on Avgas).

    Once temp's warm up, I get a little more confidence, and the bike is familiar to me I'm sure I'll get more comfortable with it but for now 4000-8000rpm is the sweet spot.

    this i can see.. at some point it comes down to what you're used to of course.

    but yeah, front wheel off the ground.. i bet counter-steering doesnt do shit at that point

    that sound is responsible for making addicts out of otherwise 'mere mortals'.

    wow, that is really impressive for them to release this as clearly they've already filled plenty of orders for the 2019..

    gives those who are still on the fence, something to look forward to
