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.

Trust me, When I tell you This is no joke of a bike.
It is not full faired but Sh!ts and gets. I have 127rwhp 145 advertised at crank, 10.27 1/4 mile Huge 180 rear tire
Full sport tuned adjustable suspension, And the motor is the original R1 retuned for sport riding in this somewhat heavier frame. With it's 11,500 redline it does 80 in first gear. I think the top speed was around 180 but is not confirmed by me. The FZ1 will hall the mail it is not Sport touring even though they raised the bars for two up riding. It is also declaired to be the Worlds Fastest Naked Sport bike. Acording to sportbike Mag. I have Titanium straight bars on mine for a More sport bike look And It had a slip on on it When I got it. All In all My wife and I ride it everywhere. I went with the 1000 also for power more so the stop and go with two of us on it but when I am alone. Trust me the bike dont know I'm here. Anyhow good luck with what ever you get and ride safe.

No rairings is what draws me away from the FZ. Sorry :sorry: said:
Don't pay much attention to these guys ... they are sportbike snobs :D :D :D

I used to own a Dyna (twin cam)... I really liked it. It's just for a different kind of riding.
