Default CBR 1000

So, does the hottie make the CBR look better or worse? Does anyone think that the bike looks any better in a "real" pic?



I think it does, but barely.



PS- Gotta love the guy looking at her cooch. Probably Honda's lead designer.

The Honda dealer that bought my Magna built a racer around an XR 650R engine and has the shock mounted almost horizontally on the left side attached to the swingarm and frame. It's exposed like this.

Default WOW

That is the most profound statement from you yet. If you stay away from Jr. High name calling and keep to big boy sarcasm, opinions and facts you are quite intelligent and interesting.

It does remind me of the GTS1000 too. Speaking of the GTS, I should find one of those...

The Confederate looks like a fun ride. I'm sure that thing has boatloads of torque.



Perhaps a used 750 MV might be for me. It's still faster than I'll ever need to go.

Default i feel stupider alla time...

really does make me scratch my head that Honda goes to the trouble of offering that new 1000RR in a tasty red/white/blue color scheme, and its American branch won't sell that one in the U.S.A. I would've liked to have been in that meeting. Would Honda Japan have said No Patriotic Paint Scheme allowed for USA or ??? I'm genuinely curious. Anybody? Anybody at all? Is the blue paint not approved by the US Bureau of Pigmentry?

The Hellcat is one of my favorite bikes. Light in weight, beautiful industrial design, excellent componentry, and the S&S V-twin provides great thrust. It definitely has attitude and intimidates the meek. Unlike the MV, the Hellcat is also comfortable and is great fun even at legal speeds. I believe many Agusta F4s (as well as other Italian exotics) spend more time on display then on the street. It is a shame because the 750 really screams at RPM. I would really like to demo a Brutale, hopefully the ergos are more relaxed. The Hellcat is American Art that you can really ride.
