    I was even surprised at the vibration on the full faired version compared my ZX1100 at the time. Didn't go as well as the ZX1100 either. Looks great though.

    He had a CBX at the time as well - silky smooth in comparison and, probably because of the gearing, appreciably quicker off the mark. Like a blancmange at high speed though, whereas the Rs tracked true.

    Knee down is good, one-handed is good - but smoking the tyre at the same time is GREAT!

    Back in the day, it was an epic battle for hearts and minds, you were in the Honda or Suzuki [ Katana ] camps. I went Katana and had 3, but I still deeply regret never grabbing a big Honda, just thought it too exxy at the time. Stupid me.
