That "pushing learning so hard" statement wasn't about riders pushing hard, or pushing limits, It's about CR's and coaches pushing learning too hard. Understood at CSS though. I mean it has the...

Actually, as a thumper, 373 seems just about right to be in the mix with a 300 twin. In much the same way a 675 competes with a 600. The RC390 just does slightly better at the track due to a...
