Haha, my friend used to have an elite. We used to ride it around in the snow drunk back when I lived home. The thing was beat to shit. I'm looking around for a nice 600 right now though. Possibly a YZF 600 or CBR 600 F4i.

How about a Honda Silverwing... 500cc of Scooter.

ckacyon
Or the Silver Wing ABS. Quote: "Whether you think it's a commuter, scooter or motorcycle, the Silver Wing, with its 600cc engine, two-up seat and huge luggage space, will take you just about anywhere. And now with ABS for 2003, you'll have even more stopping confidence."

Base retail is also $7,999 US. Huge for a scooter.

Felix Leiter
My mistake, 600cc and I stated 500cc.

I didn't realize that they brought it to the states.... I've been cruising the Honda UK site.

Gone are the days of being made fun of outside the highschool when you ride your scooter rather than take the bus... that could be some real fun with a naked 17 year old on the back parked out in the woods during French class, oui!

Somebody in my family has a CBR 929. I envy him.

Ducati 999R. There is a bike. :clap:

I actually liked the 998 better... I don't like stacked headlights. They'll likely grow on me, but I still think that the Buell XB9R's 2 little 'projector beam' headlights are ugly and the 999's are just stacked versions of them...

Here is the Firebolt XB9R:

Here is the new Ducati 999:

Here is the "old" 998, see how much nicer the side by side headlights look. Also, the 998 has a single sided swing-arm! Very pretty, if I were a motorcycle I would want to fuck this:

The 998 got it's looks from the 916 of 1993.

Therein lies the conundrum... they are all "good all round performance machines." Driven by anyone but a racing expert on a racing track there is a very little likelyhood that you or I would be able to extract any more performance out of a 999 than a 998.

For that matter we wouldn't be able to tell the differnce between a Ducati 999/998 and a Honda RC-51 or Suzuki TL-R (all bikes that race in the same series, Superbike) and the Japanese bikes cost half of what the Duc does (I can buy either of the Jap bikes right now, 2002 models brand new for ~$13,000 Canadian, yet the Duc 998 costs $26,000. All at local dealers)!

People buy Ducati's for the exclusivity factor-- kind of like Ferrari. A 360 Modena is equivalent in performance to a 911tt, yet costs 2x more! A Corvette ZO6 costs 5x less than the Ferarri, yet is similar in performance. Same goes for the Italian bikes (Ducati, Aprillia, etc)-- the only difference is that even though the Ducati costs 2x more than an equivalent Honda, it is still only the price of a Golf and anyone could really afford one!

I think when i turn 17, when i move out, im gonna get my prolly a R-6, and then after about 2-3+ yrs on that then i will get somthing hefty, like a haybusa, or a used ducati......

Male prostitution...

SLP Addict
Well, this is only if i have a steady job, and im gonna start making a 8hr in 3 months, working as a cart bitch at a country club, well its money, and ill take what i can get, and no im not working with VS.

Felix Leiter
Before you get yourself all hot and bothered about owning a sportbike, call your insurance company and ask for a quote on what it will cost to insure a 17 yr old on an R6!

SLP Addict
LOL, i no its gonna be a shitload, and chances are it wolnt even be a R-6, prolly somthin more like a high 80's low 90's bike, and this is only if im financilly(sp?) stable at the time, if not oh well., i dont need a bike.
