Re: motorcycles????

I have a 98 CBR900RR. At some point, I would love to build a supermoto bike, probably based around a CRF450

Re: motorcycles????

I could never figure out the Harley FLHCLMNOP naming scheme ;-) Which one is that? The Electra Glide I know, I got my first bike ride on my father's NYPD Electra Glide back in the day.

Hey Jim, the old CBR's are a lot of fun. I know they are the equivelant of a 486 computer these days (outdated), but it's still fun to go rippin around the mountain roads.

How do you like the BMW? I've heard great things about them.

Re: motorcycles????

Yeah my dad has a supermoto xr600 with a FMF titanium4 exhaust. Its pretty cool. I want to make my crf250 supermoto when i get it. I'm thinking about a cbr600 instead of a car!!!!! I want the cbr600rr, but i would settle for a cbr600f4i, but i want atleast the f4i cuase i want a fuel injected bike!! I like the sound of a turbo ninja!!! my family owns a honda 1080cc supercharged dragbike. Have any of you see those cbr1000rr repsol honda replicas????? those look sweet too bad they didn't do any motor mods or anything though. Its just different colors schems really, but it looks fantastic!!! CYA

Re: motorcycles????

I have heard some good things about bmw's too. If your looking for a fun....yet kind of expensive bike to cruise around on they are pretty good bikes! Good for longer trips!

I should have kept the CBR, in hindsight. It wasn't as bleeding edge as new sportbikes are, but it was an absolute blast with fantastic acceleration that never made me think death was a millisecond away And Hondas are rock solid reliable, so that always helped.
My Beemer is night and day; it's a land yacht. On the Honda I had taped a cheap watch to the bars so I had a clock, the Beemer has a 6 CD changer and heated seats, trip computers galore, the works. The Honda was 400 pounds, the B is about 800. But my commute into Manhattan is huge (1000 mikles a week), with no twisties, and the cruise control on the Beemer makes the ride possible. I couldn't have done it hunched over a sportbike. The Beemer also has the telelever forks, so slamming on the brakes doesn't tilt the bike forward, it just stops it. And the ABS is excellent. I would consider another Honda because I've had great luck with them, but I'll likely only ride BMW's from now on. Also, since you likely have your bike out now anyway, BMW dealers will let you test ride their bikes, and almost no one else will. Go by a BMW place and check out something; they're great machines. Try a K1200S!

Re: motorcycles????

Jim, like you said, even though the CBR's are a little outdated, they are still good for passing a line of cars on a back road

The ABS on the BMW sounds cool, I will have to take one for a spin. With the ABS....can you still do stoppies?

ibanezrg520kid- go for the 600RR if you can. From what a few friends tell me, it is well worth it, the handling is in a whole different league...the undertail exhaust doesn't hurt either.
