well could be alot of things, they riding in higher rpms, different gears, amount of throttle given, different number of cc's, might have a v-twin opposed to inline 4. i said the vtwin part because i am pretty sure they have a more useable or flat torque curve so that might be a reason.

oh and i forgot that they might have changed gearing for faster acceleration and losing top end.

Which lane should you ride in (ie, over hills, in town, general riding)?
The right half of the lane furthest to the left. Why? Because this position minimizes the threat from people turning out of driveways and stores, which is the highest threat factor to you; it increases your visibility to them and physically places you the furthest possible from them.
all good advice for sure.....but for this question here, I kinda think the main reason for it...and most beneficial, imho, is that it prevents cagers from "stealing" your spot. if you ride too far on the right side of your lane, it can entice a cager to squeeze right up beside you and practically force you off the road. I have experienced this myself when I have been on roads/streets where the center was peppered with potholes. In the MSF course here, it is also the reason they state for it.

I noticed the mods added a FAQ folder..
I can't wait until it gets activated..
I propose CP's post (without following posts)
be the first.. (Locked)
Good job Marc. Even if we don't agree 100%
It is nice to have a bunch of the simple
questions all laid out. IMO you should'nt be able to
post a question untill you have read this thread
3 times (on seperate days). then if you
still have a question it's probibly a newish one..

The questions actually came to me as a single list from someone else who was asking -- all I did was answer them, and then repost the contents of that PM.

For the FAQ section, I'll do a more detailed one if anyone wants.
