brakes on the crossbones? oooohhhh shit. you better pray hard now, because you WILL hit the nun in the crosswalk.
Sorry - My V-Star is the only bike I've ever ridden on the street and I've only had other people's reports that the brakes aren't exactly the greatest to go by. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who doesn't think it's horrible
