This is funny I can TOTALLY relate. My dad (48) wanted to try my bikes out and said something along those lines. He rides a V-Star 1100 and use to own an '89 zx6.
No I didn't mean he was old, he just isn't use to riding a rocket. I think it surprised him. He said it wasn't his "style" anymore. :dontknow:Your dad will do great...and 48 is not Old :heyyou: youngster :helmet:
but seriously I had a 89 zx6 for a summer and on the clock it hit 140mph...the main thing is give the Warning....do not open the throttle fast and he will be good to go. :thumbsup:
That's pretty funny. I know the V-Max is fast but is it faster then the ten? Or maybe he'll just go out and buy an 1198. lolThats hilarious. I'm in a similar boat, and have been in a constant "keep up with the Jones's" kind of battle with my dad over the last few years. Here is how it went with my first bike
Me - 03 GSX-R 750 | Him - 03 Harley V-Rod
He sold the V-rod after I proved it was slower, and bought a Triumph Rocket 3, I sold the GSX-R, bought a 08 ZX-10R. Bikes mods are pc3, full TRC system, bmc filter and no secondary flies. Once he gets back from the bike rally in the keys I'll let him try out the 10. I don't think there is a faster cruiser for him to move to next either.
