    It's super comfy, has plenty of power in any gear.....and it's about the only bike I have ridden that actually fits me.
     
  5. All makes sense to me. What other bikes have you owned

    A kawasaki vulcan, and a couple dirt bikes when I was younger.
     
  7. My big wheel cr80. Miss that bike.
     
  8. Add another vote for the Busa!

    Comfortable, fun, VERSATILE!!!

    Lots of great bikes out there, but I sure love this one :)

    I'm looking for a supermoto too!!! This thing sucks in the dirt!

    So far of the 3 ('07 zzr600, '07 R6, '00 RC51), the RC51 is hands down my favorite of them all. The handling is simply amazing and the exit speed you can achieve with it is bar none. It's definitely going to stay in the family.

  15. R-Steve-R

    R-Steve-R suzukigixxer

    I love my 750 gixxer for an inline and my RSV for the twin
     
  16. Like any of my kawis ive had. except this current zr7, but that might change once i get to ride it a bit lol.

    wasnt a fan of the one yamaha i had. but it was liek a 92... so thats probably why haha
     
  17. I would have to say for dirt my 97 TM 125 and for street well my old 79 Yamaha Daytona Special my dad bought me for an upgrade from a 76 RD200 hehe


    (not a pic of my old bike but looked exactly like this pipes and all)

    1987 Honda CBR 1000F...while I love my Busa, this bike set the fun meter for me that all rides are based against.

    1987 GSX-R750.

    Totally cutting edge at the time - completely unlike anything that preceded it.
    Yes, everything you've ever heard about the legendary 1st Generation GSX-Rs is true.

    I had it while stationed in Germany - I toured all over Europe completely smitten.
    Autobahns, Alps, Nurburgring Nordschleife, Hockenheimring, Spa Francorchamps (Belgium - the day Kevin Schwantz hizzownself sat on it - still have his autograph), lost in Paris, ad infinitum...
    Brought it home stateside and toured many east coast beaches picking up chicks - that bike made me cool and got me laid (many times).

    She was, and remains, my one true love.
    The one I never should have let go.

    '86 Interceptor 500
    '85 RZ350s (2 twin racebikes)
    '85 Nighthawk S
    '86 FJ1200 (put about 100,000 miles on that one)
    '80 CB750F
    '82 CB900F
    '88 Ducati F1
    '01 R1 (EDR built)
    ZX10R
    a simply amazingly capable and under-appreciated VFR750
    my current Daytona
    many others...

    Many memorable "classics", but none stand out in my memory like the GSX-R; as much for the experiences it made happen, as for the sheer awesome goodness of the thing.

    I miss you my sweet, and I'm sorry I turned you away. :sad:
    Just know that I will never, ever forget you, and I would still be proudly displaying your tail-light to 25-year-newer bikes to this day.
    I'm still kicking myself.

    If I could marry a bike, she'd be the one.
    Only one bike I ever really, truly, connected with.

  20. I'd have to say my current bike, an 09 R1. Although I haven't had a bike I didn't really like.
