dude unless your into crazy road destruction with the seat of your pants feel, race hooked up suspension that will buck you off as quick as you can romp the throttle, i say go for it. if your more into the more upright comfortable yet strong pulling monster that can still scare you when you want it to stay with the monster. i have an 05 monster s4r and a streetfighter S. there both crazy but i like the monster for the comfort and the longer ride ability. i got the streetfighter for blowing the farings of the BUSAS
Nah what i mean is mostly on the track either 1/4 or and actual track. Racing is the battle. But on the street its a different story i love riding my bikes, nothing makes me happier, either alone or in a group. But you go into the canyons with a few good riders to show your actual skills and ability of the machine you bring.
The Streetfighter is a beautiful bike. The seating position is still very comfortable and the power is just right for a big bike. You have to get the "S" model though, otherwise, IMO, you're really not getting all the Streetfighter has to offer.
