He didn't say he wanted to sport tour in Vietnam.

What? It's comfortable, short wheel base, lighter than every bike mentioned, bullet proof engine.



Sounds perfect to me.

Definitely worth the money. I learned more about handling a bike in two days than the last 20 years AND I scuffed up my knee pucks!!



I got in 6 laps with the great man one on one, a very cool dude. We did about 220-250 miles of track. The instructor to student ratio is about 3.5-1. I'm saving up so I can go next year too.

Don't forget the Honda Super Blackbird. I got a '99 and it's an amazingly versatile bike. I bought mine about 6 months ago for 4G. The ****pit's a little small for me (I'm 6 foot, 33 inseam) for really long trips, but I bet it'd be great for you. As far as speed, the ZX14 and Hayabusa are faster and also great choices, but c'mon - any of these bikes are obscenely fast, almost too fast. I take back my last statement.

Rough night on the softball field last night. Had to take out my aggression.



It's all true though.



Who's ever heard of an overweight sock puppet?

I haven't read all the post but here's the short answer: Buy a FZ1- put a lower fairing kit on it and BAM! the universal sport/tour/commuter bike is reborn. Although I like the previous generation better, this is a wonderful motorcycle.
