Driving Yamaha R6 while MT-07 is at maintenance

Recommended Posts

Mproject
Hi all...
While my bike was at my mechanic for the oil/filter change and some crash cage modifications my friend came to my home and just told me: "Get your gear on! We are going for a ride..."
 
He gave me his Yamaha R6 (champion bike in 600 class drag-race) while he drove Suzuki DR-Z400.
 
Just a peacefull drive to make my day :D
 
P.S. Such gestures show true friendship

Well.... his R6 is fast! Really fast! These two bikes are not comparable, but there are, of course, differences. From a better suspension, a more comfortable seat etc. It's a fact that the R6 goes to 300 km/h, but this is not the primary thing for me ... MT-07 is certainly more fun. :D

He just tried to explain the subtle differences in the English language when it comes to operating vehicles; they say you RIDE a motorcycle (like you ride a horse), but you DRIVE a car. In most languages that I know, the same word is used for just about anything that moves. In Norway, we drive bikes, mopeds, motorcycles, boats, cars, lorries, elevators, but our word for "drive" doesn't mean exactly the same thing when you drive a car as when you drive an elevator; for the latter it means "move with". One exception to the "drive" rule are things in the air, that are "piloted", which can also be used for controlling any other moving object if feel so inclined. Confused? So am I :D

In Texas, its all just "coke" or "Soda". Even sprite. Sometimes Dr  pepper is Dr pepper. But coke is the general term. 

Language is funny/fascinating to me
