    Yeah, I guess you're right. I guess if you rode a 750 and didn't get the bite for a powerful bike you're pretty well off. I just wank to a cbr every night.

    I read a couple reviews on the Gladius and they spoke very highly of it. I have wanted a bike for a long time now.

    Honda's are like the mario ( in mario kart) of bikes. They aren't the fastest or the best handling but they are decent at everything and I love Honda's but still got a Suzuki.

    I wanted an R6 probably since I was 14 but $1500 off of a brand new 07' GSX-R in 08' was enough to override my level of brand loyalty.

    Even though its a 650 its two cylinder engine is not a bad compromise between enough power to have fun while not being overkill and still retaining great gas mileage.

    ooohh, I loves me some r6. I'd kill a child infront of his mother for an r6.

    As long as you've got your knees in the breeze though. I mean, whatever floats your boat. Other cliche rhyming phrases.

    I'm getting a bike the second I get my own place(I will need my own place if I ride up to my mother's house on a bike). As for the type/brand/style, get what you like. I'll be getting a Honda or Suzuki in the 600-750 range.

    Haha. Probably true over here too.


    I dunno, I looked at that bike again, and it doesn't do it for me today. I dunno. srsly. I'm incredibly indecisive.

    You spent 2 grand on a FLIR setup and you call yourself indecisive haha. I dont ride myself but most folks I know that ride usually knew what bike to get the first time they saw it.
