Interesting... was the source article the article that also faulted the high-speed handling of the Majesty?
Aren't we perpetuating a common stereotype here? Not all sportbike riders are careless "houligans" who are fighting to be first in line at the organ donor clinic... The houligans are just the ones you hear about or notice the most. And keep in mind that some of these riders are wannabe stunters who should be practicing in a closed area and not on the streets... Anyway, my point is don't label a whole group based on the actions of the few...hotshoetom said:Yeah, I can believe that about the stats being biased toward sportbike riders and that we arent even on the radar...oh yeah, that is easily believable... Most sportbike riders that I know ride with no protective gear, do really houligan kinds of things when they do ride and generally tempt fate with their riding style and their cavalier attitude towards safety. So yeah, I expect many of the military guys who ride the sport bikes are at least a little like the ones I know...and the stats support that.

Other engine-related features include (1) a radiator positioned under the foot space to make effective use of the cooling effect of the running air flow, (2) an engine oil capacity of 1800cc for minimized oil deterioration (vs. 1400cc on the existing Majesty), (3) a side drain bolt for easier maintenance, (4) automatic decompression for great starting performance and (5) an air induction system and catalytic converter for outstanding environment friendliness to clear EU2 emissions standards.
They came flying in busting stoppies and wanted to let us know that the parachute effect ain't got nothing on finding the balance point when you got your ass in the air... damn houligans...texascycle said:Oh yeah, and as for the hooligan thread hi-jacking ...
I am still curious how the hooligans got into the parachute :roll:
