Sportbike, superbike, crotch rocket?
Just thought I would mention a pet peeve of mine. Whenever I am talking to someone of the general non riding public, and they want to know what kind of bike, they never seem to know what a "sportbike" is. Obviously the make and model are useless to them. So I usually have better luck when I then tell them it's a "crotch rocket". However, personally I am partial to "superbike". It just has a much better ring to it than the others and I would like to see it used much more commonly. Anyone else have similar problems, or other nicknames? - RP
