Slightly different topic... I was lane-splitting traffic approaching red lights on a 3 lane road a few days ago. As I get a couple of car lengths from the front the lights turn green, so I give it a bit of a squirt to push through to the front. Unbeknownst to me, a dude on a Rocket III was sitting at the front row in one of the other lanes, and I reckon he thought I was trying to drag him on my sv650s!! He did the appropriate thing and opened the throttle... HOLY CARP!!! That thing took off like a missile!! And the sound! As I've only had my 650 for a few weeks after uprading from a zzr250, I was still pretty impressed with the power of my new bike... Let me tell you, NOTHING kills the that feeling like a Rocket III with something to prove! Now I have small man syndrone.. !!
