Apologies,

Apologies, I didn't answer the question.

I, mostly, enjoy riding the little bikes. The Mrs. has a little Guzzi V65 that is, well, vintage in power output. Very rarely, I get to ride it.

You have to RIDE vintage stuff to keep up, you have to be in the right gear, in the right rev range, you might have to shift IN the corner. You have to work with the bike. I have gone 35 to 95MPH in third gear, no shifting around the track on modern sportbikes. It is hardly boring, but it is a different experience.

I live in the city, I am less and less tolerant of poor brakes on old bikes.

Eric
