I just didn't think I was going to hear the words "turd of a human" today, that's all.

Didn't even think of the FZ1...for some reason.



I didn't like the looks of the previous generation. It had a very odd flow to it. It was like nothing really fit together. The quarter fairing looked like it was from a different bike and didn't belong.



This doesn't mean I thought it was a bad bike. I just found the design to be odd on the previous design.

You forgot to mention that of all the bikes he recommended and discounted, he hasn't ridden mile one on any of them.

Everyone suggesting a BMW or Aprilia- did you miss the part about a ZX14 and Busa being too pricey?

Then again he did look at a Ducati ST.

I am not sure why you are discounting the ST, sounds like exactly what you want.

As others have suggested a Honda Blackbird is a solid choice.

Or like you suggested, if sport is your main concern, mod a 750 or liter bike with ajustable pegs, a sargent seat, and helibars, and your set.

I certainly didn't think I'd hear it five times...
