At a Glance

Faster than a Hayabusa! More powerful than a Harley V-Rod! Able to leap tall gearing in a single shift. Itís... Superbike! Yes, the perfect Engineering on this piece of Hwy 12 can make any rider feel like a hero. The fine, wide Pavement soars easily along the lava-walled Snake River. The 50-mph (80-kmh) power sweepers that fly up the dry, rocky slopes to the Alpowa Summit are double-laned all the way. And the turns on the single-lane descent into Pataha are so meek, you donít need nerves of steel to swoop down them at speed. But before you go flexing your right wrist, just remember there can be kryptonite hidden behind this roadís steep basalt walls ó STCs with X, Y and K-band vision have ways of changing you back into a mild-mannered Clark Kent. So hurry up and get your costume on. After all, this DH looks like a job for Superbiker!
