Any ETA on the new bike yet Nick?
Well Chris, I may have it before the year is out, but most likely next Spring.
I am currently in a transition phase with my job, and will be heading to Detroit permanently before the end of this year. As soon as that happens, my pay will be more than doubled, my college tuition will be paid for, and I will begin looking for my next bike. I sure do miss riding!
Anyway, I was fairly convinced that I wanted the GSXR-750, but I recently had a short ride on a 2002 r1 and it fit me so perfectly I couldn't believe it. Also, I was considering the zx-9, but I really don't want a heavy bike (over 400lbs. dry).
Another wrench in the machine is the 2003 bikes that will be released soon. If the concept drawings are accurate representations of what the real things will be, then I may end up on another CBR 600. That bike looked BITCHIN' in the drawing!!!
So anyway, I will keep you posted. Whatever I get, look for an SV650 to follow shortly after, as I plan on racing next Summer. So that's the plan for now, but as I've learned...ANYTHING can happen.
...i've included a pic of the new CBR's proposed tail-section...
