Cue the Clint Eastwood get off my lawn pics, cause here it comes.
Quite a few people on facebook that I know have picked up sportsbikes for the summer/spring. Half of them are stretched out R1s, GSXR1000s, CBR1000s. And I just don't get it. None of them drag race other than brnging it out one time for the hell of it. Is it for looks? Are the new 1000cc bikes such animals that they need 6 inch stretches to keep the front down? Doesn't the handling go to hell?
Personally I think it looks stupid stupid stupid. Buy a $10,000 big road dog hog chopper if you want to bomb around the boulevard. And I've ridden a 2011 zx10r, and had no trouble keeping the front down.
Or maybe I'm just getting old at the tender age of 23...
edit: I refrain from commenting on their pictures as the majority have never ridden before and surprise surprise that 160hp rocket is their first bike.
