You somehow never feel you have full control, and I like that. Although getting on a bit, she still looks great and turns heads. She's feisty, unpredictable, raw, horny, looks great in red, and forever wants to go...and when you climb off, laughs at your inability, a bit like my other half in many ways.

That's about the most spot on assessment of a proper sport bike I've ever heard. Yamaha knows how to make their bikes look nice, IMO.

Nice Guzzi, man.

I ride a 2003 Yamaha R6. There's a thread in the Petrolhead Zone. Can't be bothered to find the link at the moment.

I got this ZX6 last October - it's still only about 250 miles old.




And I had this DRZ400, which I wrote off in December, breaking my left scaphoid in the process.

You wanna know what the best part is?

16,000 miles service intervals for the valves [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif[/img]

My bike is 5 years old and all of the valves are still within proper clearance. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img] Amazing.

Had an R6. Sold it to buy a 2008 Duc 848.
Sold the Duc in December, and just bought a Sea-Doo RXP-X
255 Hp supercharged four stroke. 0 - 50mph in 2.8 sec on water.
Loved that bike, but the jet ski is a weapon.
Am really keen to get another bike. Have booked a test ride on the Ducati 1198 when it arrives, but not sure the budget will stretch that far.
Guy I ride with has an Augusta F4 so need to keep up.

2006 Speed Triple. Only mode of transport, so I ride it pretty well every day. Getting too old for sports bikes. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

Nicky Hayden held the key to this bike at X-Games 08.
Its the only bike I have that hasn't seen the track.
(Hey Lex, valve job every 6K at $1K a pop.)



The rest of my bikes do mandatory tracktime:
