    I'm sure some of you guys have watched On Two Wheels and seen Ari ripping on these little machines.

    Being able to get all the power to the ground with out wheel spin can get you quick lap times. That said He needs to try a Dub.

    Yea, a stripped down CBR would (clearly) make a super-nimble platform, too.

    No Joke! I'll bet that thing it a blast to toss around. Not to say you can't lose it but I'll bet the corner speed is unreal.

    I like these lower cc classes because it's more about skill than power. It's like autocrossing a Miata. Anybody can go fast in a Corvette. But Miatas can beat Corvettes on the autox course with a good driver.

    It's why I have more fun on my DR650 than I did on my FZ1. Or my Z1000 before it.

    Well, I have to confess to orgasmic fun on my Speed Triple and a number of other hotrods!

    But, condensed down to just one thing, my TW just makes me smile.

    I got my 1st motorcycle a long time ago when I was 14. A 3rd hand Harley "165".
    The TW gives me the same feelings it did.
    And I smile...without going 160MPH!

    Yeah, my fast bikes were fun and all, but all they really did well was go really fast.

    The funny thing is that my TW is more fun than my KLX ever was. I still dunno what it is about the TW... it's just a fun little bike.

    It's sunny and 50 here today.. I"m tempted to pull it out and go for a ride.

    As I found out on the Dragon. The Dub does not have much power but can be tosses around like a toy even with stock tires. Going fast on one is a matter of keeping up your corning speed,something a Dub makes easy. Put on a set
    of203/204 tires and you can corner so hard the bike starts to feel like its flexing.
