bridomine99 I'm in exacly the same place as you. I would love to be able to do some of the stuff that guy was pulling the other night, but as you said I can not afford to replace one fariing let alone a full set of plastics resulting from a wheelie or stoppie gone bad.

As far as the lid goes....30+ riders, several with passengers and I think I was wearing one of 3 or 4 helmets total. That is one thing I definilty didn't like about this particular group. Sh*t, half the guys didn't even wear glasses, which apparently you dont need in ND.

Erion_9twees tell that damn ass to but a freaking lid on...and keep doing what hes doing. i dont hate on stunting i just dont see the piont. i personaly could never afford to fix my ride if i f..cked it up. so i remember that i would not be out riding and watching people stunt if i was doing it also, cause every one that stunts will go down sooner or later, but ill be there to watch them all do it.

theres gotta be some stunter reading these posts with some slick coments on how we are pussyes and all that, but ill be the pussy out on the highway the next day...

bridomine99 Sounds good man.......and sorry to get little edgy also. Tell you what you get a 1000RR and I'll get a RC-51 or R1 and we'll meet half way and rip it up.

PS: I'm a haden wanna be also, but I'm sure you got my drift regarding alot of these guys talking so big and sorry to add in the stunting stuff, personally i'm not into that ether.

Yesterday I went out with this crew of guys (25-35 bikes) and this guy was riding sick wheelies with his chick on the back all day long......then he drops her off around dusk and finishes off the night standing on his tank for proably a mile as the other 30 of us watched following behind. I struggle with what I should think of this kinda stuff, on the one hand no lid, standing on the tank, down the busiest street in town is just plain stupid. However, on the other you gotta give the guy props for his awesome ridiing ability.

I just noticed your comments on the bottume of the screen....my bad. Sorry man.

Erion_9twees i was not trying to start shit either just got frustrated...
and yes i can drag my knee but never once did coment or try to brag about my self(and read my coments at the bottum before you say i do wheelies)i happen to live near some very good twisties and thats all we do when we go ride...i wish i was the next hayden so does half the world but a guy can dream right...
sorry to offend anybody

(when i get my 1000RR (hopefully), ill ride to MN to show you how bad ass it will look in person!!)

bridomine99 Erion_9twees, just calm down man its just for fun. Obviously its all about performance first. My goal wasn't to stir up shit storm here, just some converstion. Obviously we are all free to buy and like whatever bikes we would like. However, personally I would like to seem some different styling on the new Honda, but that is just me.

As far as your coments....."why dont you buy a bike based on the performance and the way it rides".

Personally I'm starting to get sick of everyone pretending to be the next Nicky Haden. Lets be realistic here, how many of us are really out dragging our knees with liter bikes to the wood. I would be willing to bet that 97% of the sportbikes sold are cruising up and down mainstreets accross the U.S, not running the tires off of in the twisties.

Now i'm sure you'll come back and tell me about how your a pro-rider or the next star-boy doing wheelies from la to ny, but really does it matter. Last time I checked it still was all about getting outside and having some fun.

Lets just calm down and take this for what it is worth, just a place to bs about bikes when we cant ride.

Erion_9twees I think its bad ass and if you dont like it dont buy one, just go out and buy the suzuki or yamaha cause they have flashy colors or what ever your whinning about...why dont you buy a bike based on the performance and the way it rides. just go spend WAY to much on a dumb ass flame job and end up droping it any way!! why doesnt this hole forum stop hating on bikes that arent even out yet...you never know maybe the bike will be ridiculously fast and handle like a dream so who cares what fucking color it is!!!


Sorry, i think i got carried away there...

Slip-On I might get flamed for this, but I actually like the look. The only thing that I don't particularly like is how thin the rear is from top to bottom. Other than that, I WANT ONE!

BikesRToyz I like the new RR. not all of the have the gray bottom. One is all black. The thing is though, honda hasn't given a release date that I know off. I called honda and asked, they told me it was all rumors and they didn't know if it would be an 04. It may be a half year release like the 600rr was in 03, or it could be till 05. either way you are gonna have some time before you get to or have to look at one.

BlacktypeS I think the gray bottom is my favorite part of the 600RR.

Of course, this coming from a guy who's favorite bike is the flat black/silver R1
