I'm completely, totally happy with the F4 for now. Ask me again in a couple years.

I'm happy with my bike but I'm thinking about a RC or a R1 in a year or 2..

i love my bike, but a lot of times i wish i bought the speed triple or a 748. the gsxr just makes me ride fast. i feel like chili even when i wanna go slow.

the 748 would've been fun, but i don't think i'd beat on it as much (since i'm not a wealthy guy).

the triple i think would've been the all-in-one perfect street bike.

I love my VFR. It has been reliaable, comfortable and fast enough for me. I have added a corbin seat, Lockheart bra, soft luggage (travel only) and D207F/D205R tires. I will soon need to replace it and don't know what to get. The sort list includes: CBR929, VFR800, CBR1100XX, ZX-9R, Sprint ST955, and RC51.

My 95 ZX6 has every possible suspension tweak, (seriously) but it's still not quite dialed in...it really tends to "turn-in" too easy in corners, which is good in some ways, but makes for quite a busy ride and is bad in alot of ways.

On the whole i love my bike but i have been thinking of the 2000 6R or the next 7R (if it ever is produced)

When I'm riding my bike I love it. When I'm fixing it, waiting on parts, or just thinking about it I hate it and would sell my soul for a good old F2/F3. But It's a bike and I'm too broke to buy a new one. Anything on 2 wheels is just fine with me.

Rock on
Ride on

I love my F4. Perfect power, perfect size. As long as the bike stays reliable I'll keep it.

I am beginning to really like my VTR. I'm anxious to install an aftermkt exhaust system, and I wish there was a cost-effective way to increase its fuel range, but overall, I'm pretty content. There's a gaping hole in my heart, though, where that 929 used to be.

GreenNinja, have you had any nibbles on your bike? I'm not into the chrome/polishing stuff, but I have to say that your bike is one helluva looker.
