Those bikes scare me! All the horsepower and virtually non existent handling or brakes! Now those were crotch-rockets!
Fastest thing i've gotten hold of is either the GSXR 1000 or it's big brother the Hyabusa. Both Suzuki and both ridiculously rapid! The Gixer just plain ****es on anything off the line (in civvy land)....but i am partial to the new revolution of Yammys and Hondas. Kwakers are catching up though....their latest ZX10R is getting rave reviews!
I don't think anyone who rides hasn't "sent it down the road" at least once......but as i said before, that's the fun!
As for the punk band...........huh? Afraid i haven't heard of them!
