I'm sure you guys get these all of the time - sorry to add to it.

I'm looking at getting a sport bike. I've been riding for a long time and currently have a Harley Fatboy. Anyway, I'm looking at (in order):

2003 - 2005 Kawasaki KZ-12R Ninja
2004 - 2005 Honda CBR1000RR
2003 - 2005 Yamaha R1

I'll probably get Heli bars for whichever one I get -- I don't want to be all hunched over, etc. (yeah, I'm a wuss). Anyway, I'd welcome all opinions -- pros and cons of each.

I have always heard great things about the riding position of the Hayabusa. Its not the corner carver that the 3 you named are, but its an all day freeway rocket, thats for sure. Any of the bikes just outside of the main four focused sportbikes (CBR, ZX, R, GSXR) mostly have a more relaxed position. Since yuo are a HD guy you also may want to see what a v-twin engine is like when its raped, such as a Ducati, SV1000, VTR1000. ANother great classic ride is the Kawi ZRX1200.
