I'm looking to buy used (around $8000) and I was wondering which one of these bikes people think would make a good second bike.
I'm 5'7'' 150 and I've had about 2 seasons of riding and I just need some more power and maybe more so... a change.
I'm looking for a good mix between power, comfort and quality. What would you look at? Any help or thoughts would be great! THX
i suppose this don't mean much because i don't own one. i've give a vote to the r1 if you want it to handle,some comfort, power,and looks. then again i'm ridding a fzr1000 from 87 :>) I LOVE IT. the power is a little short.. i'm doing a major rebuild, big bore,ect. and nitrous.... i,ve redone alot already..
whoa....loaded question. i personally would go with the 929 if you WON'T go for track days. if you are gonna go on the track, then i'd pick the r1 or gsxr. i'm not a v-twin fan (sorry to all v-twin owners.....nothing personal, just my opinion), but maybe a tl owner can give you reasons why it's a good bike. the 929 is bulletproof and will last forever. the yam and gixxer have really aggressive riding positions (compared to the 929), but are ultra flickable and if you read the 08/02 cycle world, they pitted the best riders (journalists) on the top bikes (yams, ducks, etc.) and the gixxer 750 was the overall pick for best bike. i am going to get a used gixxer 750 for track days......wish i could use my 9, but i like it too much for the street and stunting! good luck and i don't envy you......tough choice.
see this bike is going to be the last one I buy for a good number of years so I don't want to outgrow it. Id rather get a larger cc bike that I can learn to use and grow with. I'm afraid that if I get an R6 or an F4i that I might outgrow them within a year or two leaving me looking for more power. Just something to think about.
