    Official Sportbike/Crotchrocket Thread

    I'd like this thread to be dedicated to discussing the reliability, comfort, styling, pics, etc.... of sportbikes such as Suzuki GSXR's, Honda CBR's, Kawasaki Ninja's, Ducati's, etc....you guys get the point. I'm trying to register for the PA motorcycle class soon and I plan on purchasing one of the 600's eventually.

      had a 01 Ducati 900ss till it was stoles, and a couple 900cc rice rockets. Got my eyes set on a speed triple, agusta brutale or a ducati streetfighter.

        When you just start riding - 600 is a nice bike, although it's pretty fast for the beginner, I never liked them because they have no torgue down low, they are great for the race track but not in the city. IMHO the best beginner bike is a monster 600, from all the bikes that I've ever rode - it's the most comfortable all around beginner bike that has looks and some grunt but is not deadly fast.

        this was my brand new R6 50TH Anniversary edition back in 07





        great bike when you get it up to 10k RPMs

        my true dedicated race bike- ZX7RR bored to 820cc with million of mods

                My SV650 was a great starter bike in the 600cc range.

                I liked that it was a v-twin and had nice torque to help you learn how to ride and balance the bike without working hard to get it moving. You could be ham-fisted and still pull away from a stoplight without fanfare.

                Replacement is undecided at this time. 848 is top on the list next to the D675.
                I want the v-twin feel again.
                Below the radar...

                  Now on to the Proof of said activites...











                  One shitty baseline... and a nice after mark! Sorry I dont have the image of the acutal final numbers though, I wanna say it came out to 102? it was way less then what I had expected though, still 29hp gain isnt bad I would say!



                  Thats all I have of the bike sadly. I got it all back together and then got a little thing in the mail and found out that property taxes on my new house were due. House or bike? House or bike?
                  I think some guy in SF has it now. I miss my bike... BAD.

                    I absolutely LOVE that bike. Probably more then my wife and kids. Honestly I don't think yamaha EVER built a better bike. EVAR!
                    I would let you shag me senseless for that thing. LOVE!


                    Only thing closer to my love for that is this:

                      I have a Honda CB-1. Little 400cc beginner bike. Tons of fun, though. A Street Triple or Speed Triple is next in line.

                        Pretty sure that is one of the most hideous fucking chuds of a Ducati I have ever seen.

                        The new 1098 Streetfighter looks pretty mean, albeit its release is about 10 years late. I still say the Speed Triple will always take the cake for naked bikes.
