Reminds me of when we were couriers in the 80’s. Most people rode CX500s, GT550s etc, real workhorse bikes, but we’d race any and every other bike we came across on the road. As we used to say, you couldn’t loose. If the other guy got away it’d be “well of course he won, i’m on a CX500 and he’s on a Gixxer (or whatever)”, whereas if we dropped them the victory was that much sweeter for being on an unsuitable bike.

That's the problem with the internet.  No one knows you're a cat.

I did several years despatching too and it was surprising what you could get a CX500 to do if you had the balls to go for it. Embarrassed many a big bike rider at the time.  big grin1
