Heated grips are overhyped AF. Put some on last night, hands were still freezing this morning (~mid 40s, no sunlight). Hope it warms up or my riding season is effectively over, which is weird for NC. I was riding through winter last year.
All they need to do for the Busa is make a bike with a different name and fairings that don't look like a wax sculpture left in the sun. Maybe a stronger subframe. Theres not much difference between something like a Ninja 1000 and a Busa under the skin
Technically, they are sport tourers, like the ZX14, Blackbird, etc.
Daytona's extra power is all on the top end. They are pretty much matched below ~8.5K https://www.google.com/search?q=street+triple+vs+daytona+dyno&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0CCwQsARqFQoTCJSf4uPezsgCFUk8PgodTqMKQg&biw=1600&bih=726 I would def love more top end on my bike but if I could choose I'd rather have more low and midrange.
25 hp that can barely be deployed on the street.... Man temperatures have taken a big dip. Gotta get those damn heated grips on.
Striple R is just a Daytona with dirtbike bars and milder cams, no? Dunno if you guys watch MotoGP but today's race was EPIC. I might watch it again tonight
If I am going on the highway, yea I wear earplugs. I do think a lot of it is the quality of your helmet though. I have a cheap Scorpion shit I will probably need to replace soon.... it buffets and is loud as hell. Anyone know anything about heated gear? I have heated grips and I want to get something to keep my legs warm.
So so so so so luxurious to be eating 3000+ kcal again. Fucked up thing is it's not even that much food. Just enough for me
Earbuds, even with active noise cancelling, won't cancel noise as good as earplugs. If your exhaust is sociable it should be fine on back roads though. I am OK w/o earplugs under like 60. Had a moment today. Was booking down some backroads and I downshifted at redline Bike seems OK but that was less than chill
Anything less than earplugs on the highway is painful and annoying to me. Probably my cheap helmet, but still, prob not a good idea regardless.
