People wonder why SBK riders...

I can't believe that people actually question why people who ride Sportbikes wouldn't rather riding a cruiser. Ok, yeah they are more comfortable for like long rides. But when you are too nice and decide to take your neighbors along for a ride cross country to Sturgis, it could end up costing more than what was intended!

This ain't always true. Of the handful of cruisers and choppers that I rode, I sat on my tailbone. I couldn't do that for more than 10 minutes. At least on my sportbike I'm sitting on my sitting bones, whatever the're called. And I can get up on the pegs for a few seconds to stretch and shift everything. With my handlebars raised, I have even more weight on my sitting bones. If I didn't have to pee every hour, I could make it out to Glenwood Springs non-stop.
