So I've seen. Most of those riders probably weigh about the same as a NO2 bottle. Now if I could get one of them to ride my bike that would be cool.

NO, NO, NO, I have nothing against the Gladius except the name. That motor is one of the best engines ever put on two wheels and I like the naked look of the bike.

I think if that was my only choice for a ride I wouold probably give up riding. The name alone is bad enough, right up there with the Gladius.

Don't need to know about the plastic, that part I know. Talking about frame, suspension, running gear. Are they all the same?
