I let a friend of mine ride my 650R (uncorked) this past weekend. He has a honda shadow cruiser (I've ridden it, it's pretty sluggish). Anyway, the 650R scared the living crap outa him. He didn't crash, but he did come right back, got off the bike, and said, forget it man, it's too much, that is insane, it tried to get out from under me. I tried to explain to him that it's called "fun", not "insane". hahaha.
