I kind of agree with you, but think of the audience the author is targeting in Lanesplitter. I cannot belittle anything that encourages us to go out and ride any type of bike, it is all good. Sure we may laugh at the article, maybe as hard as a 45hp KTM owner who sees one of my put-putting off road videos on this forum may laugh at me. Pride is good, but is best tempered with a dose of reality from time to time. I forgive the author, so many write without experience nor knowledge of subject material.
