1977 KZ650/H... Sometimes you have to fight it to get it to run, but when it does, it makes it all worth it.

2002 Yamaha YZF600R. IMO, greatest all-around sportbike made, and I did A LOT of research before I made my purchase. It fits my needs perfectly (700+ mile day-trips, plenty fast enough). I'll add to the stable for sure, but I'll never get rid of it

Bought my first bike last fall ....'03 Kawai Ninja 250....what a great little bike to start on!!...Light, handles well, cheap and easy to operate, and just quick enough! Live in the northeast though...can't wait for the warm weather again!

I've been a bike guy ever since I was about 6 when I got my 1st dirtbike. After a few Jap bikes I have found my peace with and Italian ride. I got a good deal on a late model Ducati 900 SuperSport. Looks good and sounds absolutely amazing with an aftermarket exhaust. Those twins make lots of torque that is easily tamed.

I have a 2004 GSX-R 600, only means of transportation for me at the moment, and I love it .
It always beckons me to go faster though, and it's nearly impossible to keep it under the speed limit

Well, I HAD a GS1100E and a GPz 1100, both 1982. I'm overseas now and they were both just sitting, so I sold them to good homes where they'lll get plenty of use. I'll be back on board one when I get back home.

Gee, that's a really high-class comment. Your attitude is similar to the general public's regarding ... pilots.

Suzuki 2007 GSX-R 750. Bought it new, ran up 1000 street miles to break it in, then started doing track days. Don't ride on the street anymore.
