i don't see how people can ride these modern "crotch rockets". i man all hunched over like that. the last motorcycle i had was in the early 80's. it was a honda 450 with "ape-hangers" and "highway pegs". it was like sitting in a recliner.

I rode a friend's Ninja once... my hips hurt for hours afterwards.

Me, I like classic cruisers.

My current ride: 2005 Yamaha V-Star Silverado Classic


Previous ride: 1995 Harley FXD.


And a bunch more going back to 1978.

First, most folks riding a sport bike are in their 20s.

Second, the riding position is not intended for more than an hour or so. Its designed for a road race, most are under 100 miles long, and you tend to go faster than 100 MPH.
For that, the position is great.

What I don't understand is how you can ride one of them on the street without getting arrested constantly.
