    The guy on the blue Ninja is quite slow ... he gets off the bike fine and is in proper body position, now he needs to pick up his cornering speed an additional 10mph and get the bike lower. Considering the GP rubber he's running, he's got a LOT of speed left there and if there's any public road in the US that you can run many corners at track speeds due to unrestricted vision, the Dragon is it.

    I've dipped own into the 9 minute mark on my 929 at the Gap. I ran a high 10-minute in the wet.

    Quite the opposite .... small light bikes do very well at the Gap. There is such a thing as too much power and if there's a road that would point out poor power delivery, poor throttle response, or too much power .... the Dragon is it.
