You did it again. I laughed my head off, and almost choked on my coffee, when I read your post. You must be the one-liner king. If I had the bucks, I'd buy your ST4. Anyone with that kind of sense of humor should be supported.

I'm into curves also, all kinds, and with the motorbikes the most important is the torque curve. Obviously. And there Yammie eats everybody for breakfast.



Top figure clearly a winner. What's more important, already at 3750 RPM matches Kawis top (@ 8400 RPM) and beats anybody elses, at any RPM, by a substantial margin.

Before learning Ebass's secrets I would like to see a photo of Katherine.

Sharing a cup of coffee at the campsite? You'd better quick get your butt here to Latin American campsites to learn something about sharing.

You forgot to look at the torque curve capn. The Yam gets the bisquit by a big margin.

I cannot speak for the FZ-6, but I own a ZZR and yes it does buzz, but only between 4500-5000 RPM. On either side it is smooth as glass. So, in 6th gear do not ride between 80-95 mph or drop it a gear or two if you feel you need to.

Default Un-Boring Sport Touring bike!!

Honda V5 1200 Production Bike Rumored......

Several European publications have been reporting that Honda is developing a V5-engined 1200cc sports tourer as a replacement for the CBR1100XX Blackbird, to go on sale in 2006. The bike might be called a VFR1200, and it will supposedly feature MotoGP-inspired aerodynamic design.



Rumors say the bike may be the first production model to exceed 200 hp, and if it is marketed as a VFR it would likely receive Honda's next generation of safety features. Honda currently produces bikes with linked brakes and ABS, and there is some speculation that this next-generation "Super VFR" might feature a full traction-control system. By Alex Edge

Default Re: Here's how

Buzz, I owned a 1999 Connie and just bought a 2004 ZZR1200, but I almost bought a 2005 Connie. I wasn't worried about sex appeal, I was looking at functionality. Heck, I was more concerned about owning a chain drive bike versus a shaft drive bike and whether the wind screen on the ZZR would keep the bugs and cold air at bay since I ride in the winter too.



I bought the ZZR for 3 reasons. First, I got a great deal on a 2004 model that was on the floor (seems not many people realize how great this bike is). Second, I was impatient and didn't want to wait for a 2005 Conniel to come in. Lastly, once I rode the ZZR I was intoxicated by the power of the engine!



All that said, I keep trying to "Connieize" the think by adding a full set of luggage and taller wind screen.



Hey, you wouldn't know how to replace a chain with a shaft would you?))))
