Like any other L/P plater I spend my non riding hours oogling over youtube videos of non LAMS bikes tearing up highways and doing huge 4km wheelies and such, dreaming of the day I can buy my own 'real' bike. One thing that I have noticed though, is that all the supersports seem to be able to do like 120+km/h in 1st gear. Given that the fastest you can legaly go in Aus is 110km/h, this seems almost......dissapointing. I mean part of the fun of riding is taking the bike to redline through the gears. But when these bikes are into 3 points terrioty before your even out of 1st gear........well, I fear for my licence. Is it just the jap 4 cylinder sport bikes that are like this? Or do pretty much all the big capacity bikes never see redline in any gear if owned by someone with a desire to keep their licence?
