Or for getting from Seattle to Hollister, CA in a day. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. OK I almost never plan on freeway riding but if it comes up it's nice to know you can do it without crippling yourself. And the Ninja does both pretty well.For me, a Superbike is comfortable on a road with constant corners, where you are constantly changing riding position. Droning on the freeway is for a cruiser.
