Very interesting about the bars getting hot to the touch. Would have never guessed that. The Moto gp riders make it look so easy, but one can only imagine how difficult it is to handle these machines. I think back to when Ben Bostrom was a wildcard at one of the early races at Laguna Seca. He had a heck of a time getting the bike to turn let alone go fast on it. Crashed countless times. You have to go fast to go fast! lol! Like an F1 car, they don't work below a certain speed.
