Dont ride bikes, too deadly for me. But if I would, it would be this

Just love it. Old skool two stroke screamer, like from those days when RR bikes where nasty.

Surprised to see that the Honda NAS isn't represented here.
If it is, the bluecoat filter is messing up the pictures.

Anyway, it was a concept bike in 1999, and only Honda and the lord knows why it wasn't put in production.
What a beauty..

Notice the brake discs, mono-forks and massive amount of other details.
Just the air intakes is enough to make my candybag tingle..

This is more of a "look at MY bike" thread, not "I WISH I had this bike".

Interesting concept though. Buell did something similar with their brakes, the torque on something that large in diameter must be amazing. Look what .75" did to our Miata BBKs.

Read in my most recent "MotorCyclist" that the wheels on the new EBR bike saw basically no torque load during braking. They are cast, but made incredibly light as they're basically hubless.

Anybody see that video a few years back about the reverse spinning brake rotors? Little gear system spins them the opposite way as the wheels, getting rid of a lot of the gyroscopic effects of the wheel, making it incredibly easy to tip over. In a good way.

**** yea, Vlad. Late to the comment party but the bike looks great. So much better than before. I hope you aren't really going to turbo it though!. As much as i want to turbo my current bike and how ******* awesomely brutal of a street fighter it would be, its just not worth it. Just buy a faster(used of course) bike. Then you've got two! Or just sell it(which you could get much more for it now, the way it looks and all) and buy what you want.

Actually, just ride it! And build another miata(I've been waiting for your ls1 build thread).

Thanx man, and I was just joking about the turbocharging part.
It scares the **** out of me as is when I take it past 10k, I'm nowhere near the rider skill level to even consider a stock liter bike at this point, let alone a boosted one lol.

I just picked up my first bike, 2001 Suzuki GSXR600. I might have over paid a little bit for it, but I knew I was helping my buddy out that I bought it from. Crappy cell phone shot when I first got it to my shop. Next to my dead Miata.

Can't say you paid too much without saying how much you paid...?

KBB says $3000 for excellent condition, I don't think you did too bad.

I cant stand the paint job, it looks like **** up close. There are runs everywhere in the clear coat. I'm thinking if I get exciting I might paint it. Thinking white possibly

I cant stand the street fighter look. It just looks awful, much like this abomination: http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6196/...8a0db8c0_b.jpg

I wanna go white, black front fender, black wheels.
