350 is pretty low. It doesn't take much to get them over 400-450whp.

more than enough for a bike. And I'm not building the motor right of the bat. Plus 350 is enough to smoke anything on this forum. Including our beast 1400 hp fox

True, 350 is plenty of power. My zx14r makes 225whp and its crazy fast.

I had the chance to ride a 500whp busa and I didn't have the guts to run it. I had too much respect for it.

I'd do it. You said to get on it... not to ride it.

I've seen it go south many times even with a helmet. Best of luck I always wanted a bike but never trusted anyone else on the road enough to actually buy one.

Its well respected when a person realizes a comfort or skill level of themselves when it comes to riding a motorcycle. I rode one for 25 years, and 3 years ago, I gave up the enjoyment, as I realized my reflexes and ability to react to other drivers that did not see me became limted, due mostly in part to simply getting older in life. Sigh.

I enjoyed my days as a motorcycle rider and miss it; but feel I made a good choice.

More people die on Harleys than crotch rockets. That is likely because the elderly ride Harleys and there are likely more of them on the road. Also evasive maneuvering is harder on a harley. At the same time though, what the hell do you need that much power on a bike. I was completely fine with my cbr1000rr and my r1. To each his own I guess.

Ya there's a part of me that always wants one but then I see another wreck, fatality or serious injury and it makes my mind up.


Rollin' in my 5.0

HA HA HA. I would avoid owning a Fiat at all costs. They can't be that fast while they're getting worked on.

Agreed.

Rap has a young family. And I too have seen it go "south" on far too many occasions. I know that he has plenty of experience on motorcycles, but some of the risks that a person takes when they are single, with no responsibilities, can have far more severe consequences when a family is involved.
I have a buddy that, as a condition of buying a Harley, his wife insisted he also purchase a 1 million dollar life insurance policy.

Just something to think about...
