A bud of mine came to town this weekend and along with him brough his cbr1000rr I've only been riding my ninja for a couple of months now. And reading all the posts here have scared the living shit out of me when it comes to litre bike. haha But i just had to see what it was all about, so after begging him a good half hour i finally convinced him to let me ride his bike around. I've gotta say it feels a lot more smooth and stable than my ninja. As long as you keep it in lower rpms and shift early the things a kitten. So i'm wondering how many more hours i've gotta put in on my ninja before i can move up to a more powerful bike.
