One Bike....

alright, tried a search for a similar thread, but nothing pulled up so i'm starting this one........


if you could have one bike, what would it be and why?

i'm a tortured soul and i'm torn between a busa' and harley night train. ( i know, two bikes but each one serves a different purpose)

so let's begin.

Maybe upgrade to a 750, but I like my bike, in fact i'd probably stick with the 600's. Maybe trade off for a new CBR 600rr, it's a great track bike, and great for the road.

I actually got the bike i've always wanted (my zx14). But now though I'd like to get a ducati and pimp that one out a lot. But, for stunting,,,i'd just like a new r6..i've fallen in love with these bikes for doing stunts on.

Well, I'll answer theoretically because I'm not ready for this bike, but definitely a Honda CBR600RR or if I get really badass, a 1000RR.

I used to be totally in love with Gixxers, but my opinion has changed as of late.

liters are overrated unless you ride straight roads. You can be badass on a 600. Arguably the two fastest gap riders, ride 600s.

2005 Honda CRF88RR - 2007 Honda CBR600RR

I agree, this dude knows his ****. Until you've mastered a 600 don't even think about a 1000. Squids buy 1000's b/c their friends make them feel like pussies if they don't. It's perfect for the street because it's powerband is so easy to predict, however a 600 will smoke a 1000 in the twisties. Rock on! Unless your name is Spies, Mladin, Rossi or Hayden.

One bike? Forever? This:




Because it's possibly the sickest bike I've ever seen, it would be super rare and it would KILL!

I ride with a 2 guys on busas and they love them. Who am i to dissagree. Nice bikes!! I would stay with a 600 for the twisties and other hooligan acts. Maybe the Triumph 675....But after spending some quality seat time on my dads M109R that would be my pick over any HD!!! Hella fast and I know given more time and him not being there I think I could power up that 700lb beast all the way thru 2nd gear. It a blast to ride!! I kill most of my friends 600s stoplight to stoplight and can hang with them in the turns. Screw HD. But 2 bikes is a minimum!!
