Maybe you should step back a second,
the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.
Did I say I was a Street Rossi and my l337 skillz are awesome? Nope, I said the bike inspires confidence, using the above definition that means I can rely on my bike, just for clarification as you seem to have gotten this mixed up. Also, keep in mind it depends on your view level, you have no context or clue what I'm talking about, if you read the entire thread front to back you'll notice why I say this over and over.
I rode in MSF and the suzuki 250's SUCKED, I was NOT confident at ALL on this bike, I did NOT trust the bike. Not just because of my skill but because of the PRODUCT, the R3 feels like something I can truly "rely on" (be confident in).
Now maybe this clears this up for you, I never said I was a perfect rider, or I love the track or I'm doing 90 on the street. If you don't feel "great", "wonderful" or enjoy riding, why do you do it? I'm talking about mood, it's joyful, fun, entertaining, engaging, never ever said I didn't pay attention, I'm paranoid 100x more paranoid in my car than most people are on motorcycles, I'm even more paranoid on my R3.
I have progressively become to TRUST the bike more hence is "confidence inspiring" rather than being nerve wracking while riding, I'm no longer riding scared, which is appropriate for riding only a hundred miles, doesn't mean I'm not meticulously thinking/practicing/defensively riding. I'm trying to convey to new riders who have also taken MSF on similar bikes that might appreciate the differences in refinement and how it affects your decision or nervousness about riding I'm communicating the refinement of what I'm riding based on my past experiences. Everything is subjective, seeing as how I've ridden probably the most beat up 250 to an R3, it's leaps and bounds better, that's what my message conveys.
Now, instead of jumping to conclusions and bastardizing everyone let's move on, I'm going to go practice wheelies now while only wearing a helmet in my neighborhood.
