Default Re: Get one of those new Buell Lightning CITYX bikes

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.

Default Re: Is the GSX-R 750 enough?

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.

What was wrong with the FZ1? Seems like that would have been a pretty good choice. Lots of power, handling that's more than equal to the demands of the local roads. Livable ergos. Why a full on race rep instead of that?

Maybe a Ducati Monster or Multi-Strada, though I'd take the Speedy Three myself

If you don't have twisty roads to ride on you should get an old Cadillac. You'll blend in well with other Florida residents and you can run into things without worry. The slow laid-back ride is perfect for making things such as a trip to the grocery store an all day affair. You can hold up traffic and leave your left-hand blinker on for miles. Yes sir, if you're looking for distinction and cool, look no further.

Heat is definitely a big thing. I have a ZX-7r in SoCal and that thing in stop-n-go around town will get real hot (fan will come on often). My friend with his Ducati Monster 800 seems to have no problem, though.

I have one word for you: Tuono. I'm biased of course, but I LOVE mine! All the performance of my old tricked out RC51, none of the discomfort. The upright seating position and mirrors that actually work makes lane changes, scanning for popo, etc. much easier, too.

that's right, it does not have a Harley logo on it, so it can't be any good.
