i love crotch rockets, i would kill for an 06 GSXR600. only two bikes i have ever ridden have been a CBR600F3, and a VFR750. hated the VFR, clutch was too stiff, didnt like the way it leaned, had a good motor to it though with lots of torque. the F3 is a great riding bike, very forgiving, great to learn on IMO

if you are looking for a first bike, and you are looking at an R1, i can say with a fair amount of confidence that within a few months you probably wont be around to post anymore...

i was going to buy my first crotchrocket this year right after i got laid off, i was going to buy a gsxr 600, but instead i bought a 79 volkswagen :D

so i could've had an insanely fast bike, but instead i bought a car that does 0-60 in like 18 seconds. that's ok though because at least i can put a system in a vw.

it was a once in a lifetime opportunity :crap:

oh well i'll just buy the bike next year

yeah a frist bike and r1 isn't the best idea unless you've got a lot of other riding experience like on dirt bike's and such. my favorite bike is my hayabusa although i do love the new kawasaki zx14's.

'99 cbr 600f4
'96 cbr 600f3
'02 r1
'03 r6
'03 (I think) cbr 954rr
'99 cbr 900f4
'02 (I think) hayabusa Fast as hell but not as fun as the smaller bikes

Another thing about this is , every 04-05 i like for 8k or less is a 600 with at least 3-4k miles... So when i look at it like that ...???:crazy:

04 R1 300 miles showroom condition for that... its a steal

yeah its a steal, i was just saying though because i see alot of beginner riders that want to run out and jump on a busa or a zx14 and they think they can roll the throttle full tilt and go with it. and then they find big bikes for cheap and wanna get on em and go fast without even knowing what they are doing.

wasnt trying to knock ya, just seeing how much experience you had :)

personally, i like smaller bikes alot better than liter bikes, they might be a little slower, but they can be more fun in the twisties. and nowadays the performance gap is getting even smaller

I've raced the mini motos for a few years now then moved up to a 2000 GSX 500 That I learned on and beat on (not an R) then saved up and bought my 2004 MV Agusa F4 SPR. Only a couple hundred made. Carbon fiber/Magnesium alloy frame. Complete carbon fairings. Magnesium and aluminum components (Triple tree, swingarm, etc..) Pay about $250 a month for a $30000 bike. But It'll be the last one I own...Quick, nimble, exclusive, this baby is mine till I die...

VERY nice bike man.. Treat it like your baby (or car) since its more expensive than 99% of member cars n this forum :)

2003 Suzuki GSXR 750. I hate the newer ones with the black frames.

The ONLY other bike I would buy is a Hayabusa, Ducati 999R or 749R or the Corona Suzuki replica race bike...

i like the whole street bike thing, but i think a ducati monster s4r is more up my alley. i want something i can hop on and cruise on for long distances if i want to.

thats like saying you can make a corvette faster than a stock ferrari. i would take the ferrari anyday in that case.

My friend is obsessed with bikes, he wants to get one but porlly wont because of the weather we have in MN. I got pics of some sweet bikes, no idea the makers but still sweet.

i never mentioned anything about speed it's purely the way working on them is and the fact that the suzuki's, yamaha's, and kawasaki's use better engine's IMO.

it was a generic example. the reasons you might think otherwise were unknown at the time i made that comment.

ah my reasons are based on i hate their engine's and that for the 18k you spend on a 996 i can find better use for it. i mean they are sweet looking ride's but really you get just as good if not better from any of the other less expensive known brands.
