    What I do is every few days I open up youtube and watch some motorbike crash vids. Majority of accidents are from the motorcyclists being idiots, usually from riding far too fast for the situation. ...

    Lol

    Yip, 2008 B-King. It's feels easier to ride thru traffic than the Tracer. Feels narrower as well. As for sensible... it's sensible to have a bike that isn't under-powered, for that 'getting...

    And to add: I'm concidering upgading to the MT-09 Tracer. All the fun of the 09, but with better traction control, smoother throttle, bigger tank and built-in wind protection.
