    One day Ill get a bike that has the one sided swing arm. You don't have to mess with the chain besides cleaning and lube. You can pull the back tire off with one big nut.

    All the 1000cc bikes have the high dollar parts. I have the CB650F. The CB1000R has more bells and whistles. Bigger gauges, better adjustable suspension. Lots more money too.

    All I'd want is the fancy swing arm. I think the one sided is wicked stuff.

    I would have to multi quote to do all the agreeing in this thread. I am currently rocking a CB1000R. Hits the single sided swing arm box, liter bike box and loads of fun box. Just about to roll 10,000 miles on it. It was only ever a placeholder until I get myself an adventure bike. I have my heart set on an African Twin.

    I was just at the dealer last week checking them out again. They also have a brand new CB1000R. It looks really good also.

    I would love a supersport but I have no reason to own such a machine. My back probably couldn't take it anyhow.

    In reality I will have to buy a minivan to haul all my kids around before I get my next scooter.

    This'll slow you down and you can still have fun. I'm getting one. When the time is right.

    Some guy around the corner rides a Kawasaki Z125. It's surprising how loud a 150cc is with a muffler change. Decent growl too.

    I give up. Been trying to up load a pic of my 750 Honda cafe racer for 1 hour and to much BS. Guess I'm just to dumb any more for the newer internet stuff.

    Norton F1. Grew up watching the British Superbikes series in the late 80s/90s and this bike in the JPS colours was just amazing.

    My 1978K 750 Honda. I redid it in 6 weeks from this...

    753.jpg

    I removed 55 lbs, changed the rear sprocket and assorted parts
    to a cafe racer style. Took it to Beach Bend Drag strip and ran a 99.6
    mph and 13.006 in the quarter. I took the tack off so I wasn't shifting at peak rpms.
    The gear shift assy. and rear brake lever are off a 2002 Honda crotch rocket.

    Wife gave me an idea that was to easy to work, guess what it worked, can't tell her that though.

    I tend to go more to the touring side.

    Just twist your wrist a bit less.
    Get a Guzzi V7. It is more fun to ride slow bikes fast anyway.

    And you're talking about riding fast after I stated I don't know how to go slow...
