NOT !!!!

cafe' racing is pretty much a regional thing...
use what ya got.............

i like the hillybilly reference though.

where we live we only have a couple tarmac roads
but a plethora of curvy undulating dirt, forest service roads.
that will pucker your ass at 45mph............
btw, on a d/s bike.....
isn't that the point, puckering yer ass... ??

and there are several watering holes (ie, cafes')
along the way..
double D, rye bar. jakes corner (known assister of escaped convicts)
cactus flats butcher hook, and several others.......

idea is the same...........
ride like a hoon from one cafe/bar to the nixt.........
then brag/lie/excuse about it......

that's the way we/i do it now,
and back in the 70's on the bike in my avatar..................

state of mind !!........

I was speaking purely from an aesthetic standpoint. We all know that high performance models have issues. Temperamental, high maintenance, drains bank account, everyone wants to ride it....
