It is true you would never use more than 110 of the horses though. Maybe 140 if you were on the track.

Kind of like when you are spinning up the rear coming out of corners? It is a better feeling than any drug! Unless of course your tires are cold or over inflated
Yeah the R1 had a very linear power band, it was actually pretty easy to loft the front end on the track, and I wouldn't consider myself a good rider.

I'm a Yamaha guy through and through, only non-Yammi's I'd consider would be a Honda RC51 for the cool factor, or a KTM RC8.

I think the Yamaha FZ8 or FZ1 would be a fantastic touring/sport bike.

So many bikes, so little summer...
