Use to work with a guy who owned a HD and he almost slept in his garage with his bike..funny thing he was still married. He told me he had an invite with the local Bandidos but said no thanks.

It's all about power to weight ratio. Not who has the most horsepower.

When I used to ride I had a Yamaha R6 and I'm a small guy so it was fast but I never went crazy. To dangerous here in Tampa no one looks for bikes while driving........

Yep

Riding a big bore sportbike is a trip. The acceleration is like nothing else. It is pretty amazing the first time you pull a wheelie at 140 mph or powerslide around a corner at triple digit speeds while dragging the pegs. I have got a CBR1100XX. It is just a hair behind a busa but I have beaten plenty of them at the track. The governor kicks in at an indicated 189 mph. .

Not that it matters to us married guys but there is one thing the exotic does extremely well.

The only thing I've been to 189mph in is a jet airliner. I use to ride a Honda CBX and I currently own but no longer ride a Buell Ulysses XB12. They were both fun to ride in different ways. The CBX was a straight line bike and the Buell is a great twisty road bike. But I couldn't imagine doing close to 200mph on either of them. Just don't have the intestinal fortitude to push those limits. Specially with todays (do everything but drive) drivers on the road.
