Great video Blue.
One thing that bugs me about guys doing reviews like this...they always dick-measure with smaller CC bikes and they make sure to say they have a much larger and faster bike as their own daily rider.
I've ridden all sizes from an old RZ350 to an FZR1000...every bike has its own "fun" or "danger" factor inherent.
Of course a newb shouldn't start out with an R1 in a common sense world, but CC size is really not indicative of your skill level when all is said and done.
What's the old saying...I'd rather drive a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow?
Keep 'er tank side up!
