Guys,

Noticed some of you guys ride bikes. I'm a big fan of sports bikes, not so much the Harleys. **** some of those guys have attitude problems!!

I ride a 2001 Suzuki TL1000R sportsbike, V-Twin, D&D pipes, yellow/black. The thing is an animal. I think I could pull over a house with it!!!! Definitely the best bike I have ever owned. Before that I had a 97 CBR F3, 91 ZX-7 Ninja, 89 Katana 600, 98 250 Ninja.

I'm planning on a CBR 1100 XX next I think. What do y'all ride??

Gixxer baby

I rock a GSXR 750, Jetted w/Yosh RS3. As a matter of fact I just got back from a ass kickin ride, Had to get in a 300ZX's ass. When its sunny im always torn between my legend or my Gixxer.
I hope to get a TL1000 at the end of the year, Those bikes are so HOT.

Representing HONDA!!!

I am riding a Honda 2001 VTR 250.
For those that don't know it, it is similar looking to a Ducati Monster! or the Buell Lightning

I got it in the bright Yellow. It is one of the few V-twins available ina small engine.
Fantastic pulling power at low end, and very comfy ride.
Only draw back is not enough power!!! Top speed with a fat ******* like me is 160 km/h or 100 mph, and I weigh 95kg or 210 pound.

Wanting to upgrade to a Honda VTR750 fireblade, or an VTR1000SP2. Maybe a Cagiva later on

SeaSickLegend, your bike looks killer. Now I see what you were talking about with those rims. Nice. We gotta ride this summer, soon. I've got a group together of 8 riders now. Two of my buddies bought new Buel's. And today my buddy with the R1 and I taught a girlfriend of ours how to ride. He helped her pick up a little '92 Suzuki 250 last weekend. Man that thing is weak, but fun! Top speed is 90mph @ 14,000 rpm. Too bad she dropped it today (her first day). But the cool thing is that she got right back on and kept practicing. Bike chicks rule!

But anyways, for you all that don't know I ride a '99 Ducati 996 (check the sig.). I love this thing. It just sounds pissed off all the time. Blows fire at 3,500 rpm (Feracci chip controls the fuel injection). Wheelies for days. Just fabulous. It's a nice contrast to my sleek, quiet Legend Sedan.

drinkdontdrive, I love the TL. I cruised around on one of those for a bit. One of the best-sounding V-Twins including the Superhawk and the Ducati. And unlike jmckell, I have not seen what you can do. Send me stuff, video's, etc....! I have a fast conn. so just tell me where to look. [email protected]. I love bike videos. I've got one of an R1 w/a camera mounted on the triple clamp going 180mph, and then whipping right by a cop! I bought a minicam for my bike, but I still need a little recorder or something to plug the RCA's into. It's a wireless cam. So hopefully we'll have some fun w/it this summer and make some videos.

Got any pics of it? How much are you asking? What bike do you plan to get to replace the TL?

Don't ride yet, but I intend to learn real soon. My Dad and older brother own a TL1000R with Yoshimura pipes. Awesome bike! That v-twin sounds amazing! One of the mechanics at the dealer said they sell a lot more GSX-R's, but the TL is much more durable.

When I do learn, I'm thinkin the Suzuki SV-650S is a good platform to start riding.
