I like the ones with the aluminum swingarms vs the tubular. I've ridden a Yamaha GTS 1000, call it a poor man's Tesi. It was kind of interesting.

Was actually about trying to separate suspension actions from steering.

All Bimotas were on the expensive side. Kind of a statement more than just a bike.

It makes perfect sense being a funny looking street bike.

Yes, you are correct. But since when has that stopped anyone from commenting in this thread?
