How do you ride your F4?

Do most of the guys here just cruise with their F4 or do you ride it hard with the knee down in every corner and full throttle?

The reason why I ask this question is because Pete said that those who do not have problems with their F4 is because they don't ride it hard. But I find that hard to believe. I still believe he just had bad luck and got an MV that had some flaws, like every brand has once in a while.

I thought you were suppose to ride it hard??
Am I wrong or are the most problems had when people try to cruise on them (F4 only).
I could have sworn it was mentioned 100 times here that this is a track bred machine put on the street.
I mean, I am sure if I tried to even run a WSB superbike on the street, it would over heat, consume a high amount of gas (than an average street bike) and and have an uncomfortable seating position.
I personally thank Mr. CC for giving me an affordable race bike and only ask that he give me the means to correct an shortcoming I cannot accept for the street.
........................................
If I wanted safe choice, I would be on a Honda
(It is like I chose Angelina Jolee over Jessica Simpson . Jessica is safe and has potential to be good, but Angelina is a bad girl through and through and for sure. And my money would be on her in a fight against Jessica.... ..... sorry mental images took me away for a second :-) ).

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Just "cruise".

Anyway, riding any bike hard with the knee down in every corner and full throttle in the street is not only impossible, but stupid.

Don't take the kneedowning in every turn and full throttle thing too serious. It's just a matter of expression.
