Give me five and a half grand and I'll sell you a Z50 that you can
_seriously_ hoon on.

It'd probably do a rubbish job of carrying 600 newspapers though!

a bicycle trailer takes care of that.
As long as it's blue with yellow wheels.

OK. Let's start with 'The Most Sporting Bike Class Defined By The
Manufacturer'. For example, Kawasaki make bikes they classify as 'Sport'
and 'Supersport'. We take the 'Supersport' category and we get the ZX-6R
Ninja, the ZX-10R Ninja and the ZX-14. OK, Suzuki next. They have bikes
they classify as 'Sport / Sport Touring' and 'Supersport'. We take the
'Supersport' category and we get the GSX-R600, the GSX-R750, the GSX-
R1000 and the Hayabusa.
I'm happy with all of those (actually, I really would be). Want to try
Ducati? They have categories called 'SportClassic' and 'Superbike'. And
if you do the obvious and select 'Superbike', you get the 848, 1098R,
1198 and 1198S.
I could go on but I think Nev.. is snoring. Anyone interested in offering
a contradictory example?
