    Or does the winter lay-off make it seem like your bike is real fast? I mean, towards the end of the season last season, I felt like I could've used another 20 horsepower. Now my bike feels like it's turbocharged! I don't know if it's because of the cool air or what, but the things power wheelying in 2nd, tank slappin all over the place. Maybe I don't need a ZX12?

    Actually, I go through this every spring.

    That's the main reason I've been riding these last couple of sunny days, because I wanted to get used to the speed again. The downside, is that my bike looks like shit because of the roads

    peace

    Driving a cage will make the speed on a bike that much faster. If you have ever driven a large luxury car you don't feel the speed. Drive a sports car and the same speed seems so much faster.
