    Damn I lost track of bikes. The last time I knew anything about bikes the F3 had just come out. What was that, like 6 years ago? More? Fuck I'm old. <_<

    thats just a solo seat cover. You can get them for just about any sport bike. the cover comes off and there is a seat underneath.....

    i say get the Interceptor. It's a more comfortable ride and what's more sexy than a bike with a single swing-arm. :thumbsup:

    I like CBR600 RR's better. It runs 10.58 @ 122. But whatever, all new bikes are fast as hell.

    Kaw all the way man...

    the new VFR "or was that VTR?" has Vtec that sounds great but the book quotes 8 hours labor to adjust the valves

    standard engine takes all of 1 hour if that!

    I did not believe it took that long I went on about how my Vtec honda only takes 20-30 mins to do but after looking into it.... yup its true 8 hours!

    lets see 8 X $60-80 an hour.... = OUCH

    the GSX-Rs are great bikes for the track but have always been kinda raw on the streets a few reviews have went on about how the motors feel like they are going to blow up when you rev them past 10K even tho its never a problem it just feels very rough! also just like the duc try riding one for an hour or more.... ouch

    If I could buy ANY bike right now I would have to say nothing I love what I have
    2002 F4I FI rules! no more choke =) even tho all bikes now come standard with FI other then the R1/R6

    [​IMG]

    also before you buy a new bike check on ebaymotors.com I've found some really good bikes on there but you really need to read into the info since a good bit of them are rebuilt or droped but check this ad out

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...4&category=6710

    P.S remember to set aside about 600-1000 for gear!

    I've always been drawn to the Interceptor VFR lineup... I'm in the process of picking up a MINT 1995 model. 13k miles. :thumbsup:

    Valve adjustments are no problem, pretty handy, I could realistically do it myself, have done them plenty of times before.

    As far as other bikes, I have been riding for a while. the last bike I was on was a GSXR11100. I am not into the speed anymore, just something that is an all around performer and is fairly comfortable to boot. Thats were the VFR really stands out from all the other bikes. It handles very well, its got some power, and I can ride it more than an hour at a time without having to go to a chiropracter afterwards.....

    Gear is not a problem, since I still have alot of older gear......squids need not apply thank you......
