As a biker i wanted to run up to them and kick them off their bikes :lol:

The thing that amazed me the most was how long the traffic lights stayed on red ;)

I am with the consensus of opinion here that you have to ride these bikes differently. One thing that I found particularly unusual was the need to slip the clutch at low revs.

Tis a common thing to see some folk wind a throttle wide open when a bike does not start to well, my Mrs will do it on her zzr600 sometimes instead of just lifting the butterflies a little. It don't matter how many times I jump up and down shouting it just won't go in. :roll:
It may just be a habit thing. Maybe it's worth a slight change of habit ;)
Not saying don't do it but maybe a little less. Maybe adjusting the clutch cable will allow you to feel it bite earlier so you know better when to give some throttle.

I wasn't saying I open the throttle fully open, and I don't sit at traffic lights revving the bikes to bits, just a little quick burst about 1000rpm or less.

And yes if this is the way it is then I will have to adjust my ways! :dummy:


Thats cool, just cool :yup:
Me thinks it's not you then, I blip mine too. Somerts wrong!

Hi Nate, are you saying you blip yours as well without the misfire? I can blip 3x in a row and only once will it misfire - go figure? It's really annoying when you need to pull away quickly and the thing seems to die with a splutter, it's as embarrassing as racing through the gears and you go from 1st into neutral rather than 2nd :oooops: makes you look like a :tosser:
