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.
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.
