Re: Motor Cycles

Yea it would have to be more like a pocket rocket or a older harley. If you are into more of the cruise type I am sure you will be able to get a knock off type cruiser bike also.

Re: Motor Cycles

I vote cbr600rr, but I'm biased.





Be careful if you get a bike... you may not be into cars anymore

Depends, if you want the best reliability go with a Yamaha r6. If you want tons of aftermarket support and a good mix between reliability and super sport performance go with a Suzuki gsxr 600/750. Personally stay clear from Honda and kawi but I'm a trackday / race junkie so I'm biased. Don't see many Honda or kawi's at event I go to the paddock is loaded with gsxr's and yamaha's

Hondas win on the stage that counts... MotoGP... not some amateur hour with mediocre riders at a track day

Any of the big4 jap bikes are going to be reliable, go sit on them all and buy whats feels the best. I've ridden all the big4 600's out there, and Honda is by far the most stable feeling bike on the road from what I've experienced. The Kawi comes second. I nearly tank slapped on the highway over a small bump in a corner riding an R6, and gixxers are for squidly squids that want to look cool. R6 and GSXR's would be last two choices.

Plus 1. I ride a yamaha r6. And I race it on the track. Hands down one of the best bikes you can get. 1000s cannot touch me.

Any bike with a improperly set up suspension can tank slap easily. Honda and kawi's aren't my cup of tea 1/2 the aftermarket support. Hard to get parts track side and parts are too expensive. Gsxr's might be considered a squidly bike but you see my the AMA series that Suzuki has DOMINATED the past ten years plus when squids wreck = cheap parts for the real riders.

Re: Motor Cycles

I guess I've never had to worry about parts around where I live. We have so many places to pick up parts and what not from people that ride any kind of bike. It really comes down to a personal preference... smack talk is just always fun

Besides, there's a reason the fixxers come with 4 way flashers, right? hehe

Your exactly right, you have to keep it off the public streets and also wear proper gear. No need to get in a accident killing an innocent person. Also gear up the riding on the bike. My wife has full leathers and all the gear for herself even though she doesn't have her own bike.

Really a new rider needs to find a bike that suits their desired type of riding and their body. Before leaving the dealership have them help setup the suspension sag, compression and rebound without doing that the bike can easy upset.

Btw I'm not talking oil filters and spark plus. I'm talking track side venders...most stock tons of spare parts for track accidents for gsxr's and yamaha's. Rearsets, clip ons, pads and all those kind of parts. Anyone can walk into a dealer and buy all the stock oem parts they need.

Don't get me wrong I've turned good lap times on a old f3 back in the day, just wouldn't buy myself a Honda or kawi.

I know exactly what you're talking about, in Kansas City there's a huge sportbike scene, including a large track presence. There's a few guys around the area that all they do is buy bikes and part them out to the racers around here. Parts really aren't hard to come by for any of the jap bikes.

That sucks. Last year at beaverun near pittsburgh I went down leaving the carousel cresting over the ridge at around 140mph but thankfully my gear kept me safe only a bruised calf. Gear is worth it's weight in gold.

Re: Motor Cycles

Yea the worse part is it was not even my fault either it was another car that just decided not to stop at her red light.
After all the years of doing stunts on my bike I thought for sure when I went down hard it would be may fault. It really did a number on my lower back with many trips to the Dr and sugery etc.

This is what I wear under mine suit. Alpinestars tech race back protector, prevent your back from bending backwards and is over a inch thick in padding.

Plus 1. My back tire blew out at about 45 mph and I went down at about 30. Broke my pinky and 2 ribs. Doctor says the helmet saved my life or at-least from serious injury. I wish I had a picture of it. The hole right side of it was smashed in and scratched, basically hit head first. Went and bought the same helmet along with a spine protector and was out riding about 3 weeks after it
