I do like to be able to use a bike or car's full acceleration going up through the gears. I like the way the engine and exhaust sound under load. The longer it can last, the more enjoyable for me. With superbikes and supercars, I can't do that safely.

It is more fun for me to drive a slow car fast than drive a fast car slow. What is fast for one is slow for the other.
So I enjoy my new 1.9L to which I added a Supersprint exhaust, more than I did the Z3 M that I test drove.
