i don't why, but i love the way a bike feels when it's moving around. it is such a thrill. twisties are a close second favorite (especially since i can ride twisties without constant repetition, unlike sliding a bike around). but there's is nothing like riding on the edge of traction...

Definately acceleration. I MUST get another Hayabusa. With all due respect to my recently sold GSXR which handled wonderfully.
As great as the gixxer handled, it's great cornering ability didn't equal the rush of the raw eyeball flattening acceleration of the H-Bus.

Nowadays once in a while, I floor it on the freeway in my car and get an very mild tickle of that feeling I used to get with the Hayabusa.

I'd better stop thinking about it.... I'm getting a boner!!!!!J/K

Safe 2-wheeled travel to all!!!!

Dragging a peg at 100+ involves all of those things. It's all good!

Pay Attention

Well I think maybe people are voting on their favorite thing here. My favorite is twisties, but it doesn't get my adrenaline going. Acceleration does that. Twisties are more fun, but it's a relaxing focused kind of thing not something that leaves my heart beating like a rabbit, unless of course a moose walks out on the road....
