Haters who have absolutely no experience with them but somehow still know everything about them.

He also sounds like a lot of idiots here in the Chicago area... But I agree, the two choices I like best would be the Speed Triple or the Buell.

If you mean mentally old enough, it's gonna be a while.

No, I am still tossing around the idea of a second bike, although my financial situation is not going to allow it for a bit.



I would hardly call the Gold Wing a boring bike. You obviously have never ridden one.

Obviously your wrong, but it wouldn't be the first time for that now would it?

Default Re: Is the GSX-R 750 enough?

I'm still trying to figure out just where in S. Florida anyone is going to use the top speed of either bike. So, a CBR is what, 15mph faster than the GSXR? What difference does it make on public roads? Does he desire to be frog marched to jail instead of merely handcuffed? Is that it?

He needs Burger Barn proof he's got an ass kickin bike. How else can he impress the locals if he doesn't have a "Shootout Winner"? Why would anyone choose either of those 2 for an urban assault machine?

I had ONE experience with a Buell and it was enough to last a lifetime!



To each their own, but I rate Buells right up there with Chrysler and Ford. Good try, but a little short compared to other makes.



Beside, the thought of paying 10 large for 1950's state of the art engine technology doesn't make sense to me.

if ya lived in West Virginia... Virginia... Or east TN... I could see picking one of those.



Around Mt Storm in WV... man... A 929 or an Mille R is just the ticket...



But for city drivin? Umm.. That's why God invented the 919.

How about a Ducati Monster? They seem to be designed as "city bikes" that look cool and are easy to ride in traffic (the air-cooled ones). My S4R is a bit extreme for riding around town, but a 620, 800, or 1000 air-cooled Monster might be just the ticket.



Your mileage, of course, may vary.
