Because they each do a different job :)
Duh man! Come on! On r125 we have symmetrical lights and both do different jobs
It's just my thing... I don't like funny or not matching angles... Even my freaking table and everything on it is lined up perfectly.... Yeah OCD
Still those lights wouldn't put me off buying this bike

I personally think all those rider aids take a lot of danger away that creates fear and adrenaline. Would I have the 899 or 1199? Heck yeah I would and probably will buy one of those in the next 2-3 years, but something about me and the simplicity of a standard bike keeps me learning and happy...

When I think ZX10R I picture Moscow WSB when Sykes caught fire lol and just kept going :)

mmmm what year ninja? Always read that the cbrr is the pussy cat out of the bunch (if you can call it that) because its does everything so well and its engine is so turbine like where as the ninja is more of a handful (especially the older ones). However haven't rode either of them. You should have a go dude, just be very VERY gentle with the throttle as the throttle on them bikes are so sensitive. I remember on one of the first rides on the street, didnt see a bump and went over it and full throttled it ahah scarred the shit out of me

A few guys on the triumph forum are planning on doing a nurburgring weekend next year and would love to go however would have to do it in a car a few times first, just to learn the layout of circuit a bit as there isnt much run off and braking on a corner on a bike = bad times. Also seeing a Porsche comming up a few meters from my back wheel would put me off slightly lol
Heard that the roads around the ring/the black forest are also nearly if not as good as the track.

Sorry to the rest//back on topic
Love the hp4!!!

I was basically agreeing with you about the excessive amount of electronics being incorporated into modern motorcycles and it doesn't take much for electronics to fail :D
