To quote Mark Donahue....
"....it's not enough power until I can spin the tires in top gear at the end of the longest straight at over 200 mph."
If you are buying a $25,000 sport tourer, worrying about having to replace rear tires every 3,000 miles seems funny.
That's right up there with guys who buy Dodge Vipers and then complain because the tires cost $1,000 each and only last 5,000 miles. It's a Viper. Really?!?
The price of going fast is that you burn your consumables faster. It IS what it IS.
