  • Demo ride lined up for Saturday - '04 R1...

    I been in the market for a new I-4 for some time now and, Man that 04 R1 makes my heart skip a beat. I have a demo ride planned this coming Saturday. I've been promised 10 laps+ on a local race track in the morning, followed by a +/- 200km ride out, swapping bikes all the time. They're planning on having all the latest I-4's available for test rides, and it's by invitation only so no squids will be allowed in.

    Should be fun. The only thing keeping me from buying the new R1 is that new 1k Honda coming out. I'd like to see what that's gonna be like. Knowing Honda it'll prolly piss all over the new R1.

    decisions, decisions...

    Lucky Bastard You got to envy somebody who is employed by his passion and makes enough money for all the toys as well. Be careful the horespower may become addicting.

    I need to open my own business too

                I know which bike wins the style wars hands down - the R1. That thing is hot looking. They all will have overkill power and handle like a 600, so I would have to be a shallow SOB and go with the good lookin' Yammie if I was in the market.

                Speaking of styling, the new Honda's lower fairing looks like it was designed by the same team that did the Chevy Avalanche SUV. Bleck.

                The ugly Honda lowers might be good news for you though, more potential bodywork sales

                              My next bike will prob be a 1100XX. Rider magazine just did a review and every owner of one said that their next bike will be another CBRXX.

                              It has that suuuuuper smooth engine, nice ergos, enough weight to keep the feet planted, and 162HP.

                              Sounds like the ultimate machine for those long rides
