what should be my next bike?
There's my vote!Kevin996 said:I like the RC cuz its the closest thing to my bike. Kind of want to stay with a twin.
Ewwww, who would want a Suzuki? I hear these things tip over a lot too:evilKevin996 said:
SV650 is cheap and once paid off will be track bike? don't know if it has the power to move me?
You thought the Duc was rough on maintainance and repairs? BWahhhaoaohahaha:jester
Buell Firebolt. I saw one at the dealer and i must say there looking better.
the gixxer750 is hella common. they are everywhere, not that that is a bad thing. All the bugs are worked out with this model, since it was intro'd in 2000. I like the RC alot though. An awful lot. But if someone said cost was no object and asked me to pick from all those bikes, i would probably pick the Duc you own now. Sex on wheels, and a great bike.GroverSV650S said:I voted the GSX-750. Can go PLENTY fast and not as common.
I read the motorcyclist review of the Buell. While Eric and company did an awesome job with the chassis and making everything fit, NOT having a decent engine to put into it kind of ruined it. It's essentially a bored out Sporty like all the other Buells. And that motor's older than dirt. :confused It's less than 90bhp. I'll be the first to admit horsepower isn't everything, but to be competitive in the open class field it'd need a few more ponies. A V-rod engine perhaps?Kevin996 said:Well, the Buell firebolt is out of the running. looks are deceiving
I took it for a 20+ mile test ride 2x on the streets around laguna seca. I does really sem to lack power. maybe new louder exaust may fool me into think i'm going faster:jester .
I did manage to pull a gabage wheelie right behind the leader. We were getting on the on ramp of highway and i shifted and whacked the trottle and up it came.:evil
Maybe for a Sunday Cruiser/3rd bike . But first i need a primary and secondary/track bike?
But its good. I got my fix of riding for a few days.
Aprilia Test rides were probably booked on friday, and i came prepared with my :helmet :mad

Gotta go with the Mille as well with the RC running a very close 2nd. Seen a few of the Mille's around and I gotta say that thing comes set up right out of the crate. If you look around you can even find them for close to the same price as the RC. Friend of mine picked up a used 2001 with low miles, de-restrictor and upgraded can for around $10,500.rubber916 said:What about the Aprilia Mille? Stay a little more "less seen", have a powerful twin.
