Thanks for the info about your CBR 1000. I didnt mean to offend you or anything. I was leaning towards the cbr 1000. There is one in my area for sale, a 94 with only 8K adult ridden miles. I just dindt know much about the performance of the bike. Some guys i know said its a SLED ( very slow). That is why i asked around about it.
I was sent performance test times for the bike. In 95 one did the 1/4 mile in 11.9 seconds. Well my cruiser( power cruiser) 1980 Yamaha XS1100 does it in 12.01 seconds. When i ride it with my crew. I keep up on the striaghts. Even if i am at the back of the pack with the smaller bikes.( older 600cc/750cc) I dont mind this . Because anyone who has ridden with a pack of 10-20 sport bikers knows. Its less hetic in the rear.( lol) Anyway as I
search for a affordable mid 90`s sport tourier the one thing it must be is faster then my cruiser. That is the reason I no longer have the 99 Katana 750. It wasnt faster nor more comfy then my cruiser.
Dad i would like to know how well you keep up with your sport riding freinds on the CBR in normal street traffic and on the freeway or short burts say up to like mabye 100 mph. That is where most of the daily street battle is done. Not at the upper reaches of the speedometer. (let the gsxr1300,zx12r`s have that.) for a few minutes per year.
