I'd dispute that

Response to 18s

My last GPZ500 had 16" wheels and it handled much better than the previous one I had which had 17" wheels (and identical tyres other than the diameter).

In fact, I was able to push the handling so far that I first ran out of ground clearance, then boiled the brakes on one of my favourite Highland roads. First time I've ever experienced the situation of having more balls than bike.

I went straight out and bought something considerably faster, heavier and more scary as soon as I got back.
