I fully agree with the poster above.

My first bike was a 128 hp supersport, my second a ~60 hp airhead, my third a 50-60 hp (dont know the exact numbers because I don't really care) Cb750 K2 and I just bought a 17 hp (no typo) Enfield.

They are AL great fun to ride, except for the Enfield they are still way faster than 95% of the cars on the road if you obey the speed limits.

Every time I rode my supersport, I exceeded 200 km/h (120 mph) and I was still not even close to the limits of that bike. I don't need to do that on any of the other bikes to have the same amount of fun.

One of the old schoolers here has the following signature:

It is much more fun to ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bikes slow

And that's how it is.
