Physics makes my head hurt but not as much as hitting something because you under estimated your stopping distance!! I wonder if they take into account engine braking or are they just doing it in x gear OR even in neutral!? Bahhhh. I always engine brake my brain won't let me just brake and not down shift lol

The rear tire only has so much traction, so if you account for engine brake, you have to ease up on the pedal.  You can really see this with ABS, a little braking with too much downshift will activate the ABS.

The Ziesel works kind of like an off-road armchair

My goal is always to NOT touch the GPS once I am riding.

It was a bit simplistic.  I go with the "keep the core warm" philosophy, which is why I like the electric jackets.  Even this weekend it took the edge off the weather.

What jumps out to me is the fact that Yamaha has a 250 near production!

they seem to be trying to make it a good one too.  The class has grown with the new Kawi and Honda 300s in the field.
