I've never even ridden a litre bike, (not going to count an old Harley), and the closest I've come to it was a Ducati 996, owned by a riding buddy. I seldom use all the power of my current ride ('00 VFR), as I prefer to keep my license, so I don't personally feel a need for one. However, I understand the allure of that much power, and have, at times, wanted to experience it. It would be fun as a track day tool, but for street riding it's a bit too much. I'm finally learning restraint, at my advanced age, and don't want the temptation. And then there's the insurance costs. No thanks.
