the weather can be really a bitch when cruising around with your motorcycle, but there is something about riding a bike that is something completely different from a car... It really feels great, the wind, the view... (not in traffic, that is just baaaad). I would really love to go from east coast to west coast in the us roads and freeways with a custom bike...
I've got a bike... yeah... a uhhh bicycle. So I have a vague perception of what you're talking about. And on a road bike you can get up to 40 mph - 50 mph if you're screamin like a bat out of hell on a hill. So I know what the breeze is like, and the feeling of being open, but I don't know what it's like to experience it without working (pedaling) my arse off to get there. It would be nice to take it easy and take it all in that way.
At the moment I am in the market to buy a Bike. I had my heart set on an Toyota MR2 GT but the realisation of the costs involved and being a full time University student hit me. So a nice bike was the next option.
For the moment I'm looking to buy a Honda CBR 250 RR
In the long run though i'd like to buy a Ducati. Sexy, sleek and full of muscle.
I want a bike so bad but dont have the money for one at the moment but I would have to go with the Yamaha R6. It is a great bike because anything bigger is to much bike. Unless you are just out racin and of course who isnt.
You guys should like this clip. Especially you, HellSpawn. It's fairly short, but it's one of my favorite of the bike anyway. The company I work for did the electronics and wiring for an R1 turbo recently. This is a test run that they did on a closed California highway.
My first street motorcycle was a 2001 Yamaha R6, then I got a 2005 Suzuki GSX-R 750. Unfortunatly I sold the R6 and totaled the 750 (due to an oil slick) in the same day. That really sucked. But looking forward to the '06 model. Ride safe and always were the gear, it saved my butt.
