Burns, in contrast, sometimes has a hard time remembering which way the track goes. Less expert riders feel more comfortable on the Honda and so go faster on it. Revvier and with less torque, the CBR feels more secure driving out of corners (too secure, C.A. says: "You just whack it open"). At Burns speed, the CBR is well-damped, lively, nimble. At Curtis speed, it is just beginning to unravel.
