Cbr

I like the 600rr but, I need to keep up with 2 Hayabusas and a Kaw1100. Can i do it or would I be better on a CBR1000? A little insite would be appreciated.

IMHO...you are already asking for disaster. "Keeping up" often times = riding beyond your limits. Ride your own ride no matter what bike you choose. Keep em in the twisties and you will never have a problem keeping em in sight, or if you are real good they may be able to keep you in sight.

Try everything twice, you may have been to nervous or scared to have enjoyed it the first time.

Question understanding

I understand fully and do just that because the suck in the turns. I just get blowing in the highway strights. so what do i do about that? in the city I am a better ride because they can never open up fully or even move in and out of traffic as I do.

Where in the hell on the hwy can one open up to full chat on a 600 or 1000cc? The same goes for in city or town streets since one simply cannot open up full chat on either. So forget the idea of trying to outrace them.

If you still like to move fast THEN line up with Track Days & that is when you will have a chance of really letting your bike rip.

Play around like you are sort of indicating costly speeding tickets IF you are not in the hospital with severe injuries & your bike totalled.

You handle sort of indicatates you will be hit with the above two very shortly.

Buying a bike for the purpose of outrunning someone else is a bad idea. Totally backwards thinking. Learn to ride first, go insane later.

Just to answer this little rhetorical..
Hwy 60 between the 10 stack and Higley road.

A CBR1000 isnt even going to stay up with a busa,But your thinking about this wrong.I dont know where you ride but if your riding in the city or on twisties you should have the advantage.Get way ahead of them early then you dont have to worry about geting lost on the highway.You need to decide what you like better 150 mph straights(which a trained monkey can do)or hiting cut back turns at 60mph(which takes true skills).CBR's are great no matter what you like.

Luckly the tree was there to stop me.

Sideway is this "--Hwy 60 between the 10 stack and Higley road.---" a legit road to go flat out on to speeds well over 200mph? If not then we to have similiar roads in Cdn & there must be a maze of them in the States where one can go flat out only it would be breaking the Max Speed Limit which means speeding tickets. You get a number of them & you are suffering due to points & fines.

I was referring to hwy roads that were LEGAL for one to go full chat on & that means NO SPEED LIMIT. So let us say said stretch is open to any speed then are such roads all over the States? I sort of doubt it.

Man, you guys should holiday in the Northern Territory.

Open roads carry NO SPEED LIMITS!




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

Oh, legally you meant.

Of course not. As far as whether or not the road surface can handle those speeds, it can. To the legality of it, no. If caught, one would be arrested, spend roughly 8 hours in county and be charged with criminal speed.

And for what it's worth, we ALL break the law from time to time, (some of us more consistently than others) on our bikes. I mean, we don't pay for these bikes and the insurance that goes with them to drive around at 35mph. We could do that on a Harley.
