come on man, you should know that rotor/drum size isn't the final word in braking performance.

I've ridden a few v-star 650's (bike week demo rides, and my buddy also has one), and the brakes on that bike are just fine they weren't zx-14 brakes, but i had no worries about stopping quickly if i needed to.

brakes on the crossbones? oooohhhh shit. you better pray hard now, because you WILL hit the nun in the crosswalk.
it's not the destination, it's the journey
