    Couldn't agree with you more Phailadin; slow and steady wins the race for me, though I did recently go a bit crazy with a friend on a closed track. My family and personal safety is ultimately too...

    Yeah a bike with great displays is definitely a plus! Really adds to the overall aesthetic as far as I'm concerned. Very cool to learn what other people prize in a bike above all else; I really think...
