Cool

The R1. I am not a track rider, so all-out performance is not an issue. (yeah right!) My decision is weighed by appearance. (R1 looks really cool)

R1 for me - I hope that it stops burning so much oil though.

Not that I've had enough experience on any of these bikes to warrant an educated opinion, but from what I've read it is 929 all the way. I like the idea of a bike with an engine like that weighing the same (approx.) as my 600. Quite amazing, if you ask me. Not that anyone did

if i could keep my gsxr and fzr, i'd get the 9r. comfy, take the girlfriend on the back, highway rides, and maybe some bracket racing.

if i had to get rid of them both, and i did some occasional track days, but mostly street rode, 929. it has to be more comfy than an r1.

if i had to get rid of them both, i'd probably let my love of the race track fester into my decision, it'd be an r1. the r1 is awesome. but then again, i haven't ridden the 929 yet, anyone wanna let me try theirs out?

I have always been a honda guy. I have never owned any thing but hondas but the 929 isn't much of a looker compared to the R1. So it's R1 for me
