You can quickly get addicted to this style of riding. Pull the throttle, the boost rises, the engine catapults the bike forward and the next gear is engaged, accompanied by a wild chuffing of the pop-off valve on the right intercooler-and the fun goes on and on. Clutch, gearbox and shaft drive certainly are tackling some heavy lifting, and it's hard to return to cruiser mode as prescribed by law. But even then it's impossible to forget that 266 lb-ft of torque is at work. The power surplus is at once fascinating and dangerous. Each tiny turn of the throttle requires a great sense of balance and restraint.
