No more then if you were in a car.
It's designed like a big American cruiser. They wont kill you, they're designed to just cruise along a long straight into the sunset. That's why War Horse can get away with not wearing a helmet.

Japanese bikes is where it's at. Designed for acceleration, designed to lean, designed to take corners. Those are the bikes that will kill you and those are how motorbikes are supposed to be ridden.

Give me 60mph at 45degrees any day of the week, that's where the fun is.

"Than". Sorry. Vosur just kills me.


But, anyway, I really am not sure I understand what you're trying to get at. How many cars claim 0-60 in <4 sec?

One is not "IN" a motorcycle.


Really, I am not TRYING to be flippant.

I am not sure that WH will support your claim there. WH...?

If they were "designed for acceleration, designed to lean, designed to take corners", I am not seeing this correlation you are positing between this and "Those are the bikes that will kill you and those are how motorbikes are supposed to be ridden."

I guess I am "arguing" from a standpoint of having seen what outrageous acceleration can do.

For folks who can't handle it.


Which actually tends to be the type of folks who seem to be drawn toward this sort of machine. Unfortunately.

Well, I *do* get that. But, *only* 60mph? *Only* 45 deg...?


Dodgy

One is not "IN" a motorcycle.

It's not about in or out. It's about how it's ridden.
Big American cruisers are not designed for windy hilly corner roads and dodging in and out of traffic and lane splitting.
They're designed for sitting back and just ridding along. They're designed for American roads, particularly long straight cross country roads.
You have to be drunk and unlucky to crash one.
Jap bikes, crotch rockets, sports bikes are designed for dodging in and out of traffic, lane splitting, taking corners at speed. They're tires are "V" sorta shaped compared to big heavy cruisers "U" shape tire because they're designed to lean into corners so you can take them at speed.
This is what makes them more dangerous. You have to be more aware of the surface you're driving on and you have more and closer interaction with other vehicles on the road.

Acceleration has nothing to do with it. Bikes are designed to accelerate, especially sports bikes.
Acceleration is safer. It's often far safer to accelerate to get out of a tricky situation then it is to emergency brake.
I don't know if you've ever had to slam the brakes at speed on a motorbike before but I can tell you that it's not a pleasant experience.

Quote:Really, I am not TRYING to be flippant.

It's fine, I already think you're a douche before this conversation started so you can't really go down.

Quote:Well, I *do* get that. But, *only* 60mph? *Only* 45 deg...?

Yes, because I'm not an idiot.

I havent seen that radial before, tho I know some time back Jesse James built "Radial Hell" where the engine is mounted facing front.

There are a few "Boss Hoss" running around here,barely ever get ridden.... more of a conversation piece when they first came out. They're kind of ugly and cumbersome to ride..... overkill !

My bike is a touring bike and does have some performance modifications, but its no mountain carver. I can ride 600-800 miles a day and not even feel it (except for monkey butt in the summer)

As far as the helmet goes, here you need to be over 18 and have a minimum of $22K medical, before you can legally ride without one. Its got nothing to do with the type of motorcycle ya ride. I do wear one when it gets cold, but thats it.

Now as far as lane splitting and riding like an idiot, well, lets just say those days are over for me...... but I did used to ride like that when I was in my 20's.

Heres a picture of me when I was about 21 and rode with a club (that was my 56 Panhead).... seems like a lifetime ago. Weeping
