Hell KPAUL...Id be writing up things constantly....Im an enthusiast,my son is an enthusiast, most of my friends are enthusiasts my wife has a bike,my son's girlfriend just bought the ZZR. To most folk a write up would be boring....for me and many others on this site,riding various bikes is normal. But let me try......drove to bike shop to pickup son's girl friend's new bike, a ZZR600. Rode it home about 50n miles on busy 4 lane. Kinda uncomfortable and a little too peaky at speeds of 50-70. Last 5 miles were uncrowded...75-90. Much better. Son was home and wanted to ride it. I took his GSXR 1000 ...... too much bike for me. 75-90 on two lane was comfortable but bike wasnt even close to working WOW!!! Speeds of less than 50 was not fun. Went to my house....wife doesnt ride when weather is cool so i try to give her Buell Blast a ride on decent weekends. Took a quick 25 mile lap...LOTS of fun. The Vtwin is my raggedy ol 97 geezer Glide...you dont want to hear about that antiquated POS. There ...exciting Hey.?

I guess I am skeptical about you riding the ZZR600. It is as comfortable as a VFR look at the MO archives for that fact. So my BS alarm is going off now. Also it had the best torque and midrange of the 600 group in 01 (see MO archives).. BS meter flashing now... How you could find a Buell Blast to be more fun tan a ZZR and a GSXR1000 again has my BS meter now emitting a loud "star trek" like battle stations signal... By the way I have ridden a Blast...I was crapped and thought the tranny was a POS. Also my ZX will do 80 all day no peaky ness.

"In what way are you better?"



I wasn't talking about me.



And by "better", I mean in the area of motorcycling. Better skills, wider knowledge, more experience, etc.

"a lot less annoying"



A lot less annoying than kpaul? Gee, thanks! I'm flattered. That's like "a lot less evil than Hitler."

Bingo.

The man who tried to pass off someone else's bike as his own thinks you're a liar, Neal.

KPAUL......not only did I ride the ZZR,my son previously had a 1999 ZX6 that I rode frequently and currently has a GSX600 which I ride occasionally. They are fun...but Im 54 years old and overweight and they arent comfortable for me...albeit a lot of fun to ride.You are extrapolating my comments. I didnt say the Blast is more fun to ride than the 1000 and ZZR, I stated......oh never mind. Just because your credibility is questioned regularly by others doesnt mean the rest of us are liars. I didnt mind being called an idiot by you,but being called a liar is PISSING ME OFF. Ive tried to be reasonable with you but the others are right and Im wrong......I wont get mad at you KPAUL,I'll just feel sorry for you.

BYUE!

Yeah...his thought processes are kinda strange. How he took my comments that i found the ZZR a little uncomfortable at moderate speeds but it got much bettewr when I took it up to higher speeds and that the 1000 was too much bike for me on the low speed back roads as being so ludicrous that I must be lying is beyond me. The funny thing is I like the I4 sportbikes;if I was 25 Id probably have one. At my age physique they are just not optimum.
