Like you, we often take our bikes too seriously. We segment 'em, measure 'em, compare and contrast. We argue over tenths at the drag strip, agonize over tiny blips on a dyno curve. We dice segments into progressively finer sub-segments. The 636cc, inline-four Japanese race-replica rider becomes an entirely different species than somebody on a 1000cc V-twin, Italian naked-bike. Worse yet, this fog and swirl of facts, figures, data and debate can obscure why we ride in the first place-to have fun.
