i've been really bored waiting for my motor to get back from venom and my parts back from the powdercoaters and have been looking at streetbikes alot, just wondering what kinda bikes you guys ride. heres my 04 buell firebolt, not much done to it now, K&N filter and buell race exhaust, airbox eliminator and ASV shorties are on there way.



i love the looks people give me when i pull up next to em..wondering why my streetbike sounds like a harley haha..

I have a '01 Ninja ZX-6R. The guy i bought it from painted it candy red but kept the stock yellow rims.... so i'm getting ready to get the rims P/C'ed black and the bike painted black. Other then that all it has is a yoshi pipe and i just bought a -1 front sproket.

That track is Gingerman Raceway in South Holland, Michigan. Good to know that there are some local guys around here. Im always looking for more guys to run with either on the street or the dirt. Im heading to Putnam Park in Indiana in May and then off to Road America in June to ride the track. bunch of Blackhawk Farm dates in between for racing. Need this weather to start cooperating so that i can get the 450 back out. Ive got an itch to ride it like no other.

but how can u get a buell mann. no diss to harley but they kno they are slow, and thats why most of the buells arent even true harleys anymore. i think they changed this year and its not even a harley engine anymore. all the bolts on them are metric even the vrod isnt even harley but its got harley name on it. at school i put a 05 s1 lighting on the dyno and it has the worst power readings ever. im not tryin to diss harley but they need to make a faster engine. is ur bike water or air cooled?

Ok yall....this is more of a question to kinda kick the dirt around...I pretty much already made my mind up. But in about 2 years I will be getting a bike. I have ridden quite a few and know what I am comfy on, but what I wanna know...do you all think I should get a 600 or liter bike? I am 6'8" and 245lbs...the 600's that I have ridden all have some motor work done so I can't really judge off of that power. I am concerned that I won't have enough....I want to be able to pull hard out of a hair situation ya know? Cali has some dangerous drivers so I want the power to be safe...I ALSO don't want too much power for my first bike because I KNOW I will be reckless with it...without even thinking about it. My friend let me on his busa and I scared the chit outa myself. So what do ya think? 600 or 1000? And I will be getting the basic mods (pipe, controller, etc). And sorry to thread jack....figured this is convenient and will get some attention :p PM me if you don't wanna post it in here. Thanks.

BTW...nice bikes. Really like your GSXR someday.

Honestly just buy Gixxer 750. And when it's not fast enough mod it out. I've seen plenty of 750's faster or just as fast as 1000's. The only point of 1000 is for straight lines. As you know everything is about rider. I know plenty of people that ride 600's that can make guys on 1000's look like there on a pedal bike.

Thanks bro, and i agree with the guy above me, go with a 750. It'll be plenty for a first bike. And then after a while, upgrade to a 1000. You won't want a 1000 to just drive around, I only like them on the highways. A 750 was my fav bike by far.
