    You cant legally have fun on a bike like that. You also cant be safe with a bike like that. Thats why I sold it this year lol.
    I'm currently running an rsv4 factory, we're testing a full tc bazzaz package with the z-afm unit on it.

    It's just not possible to 'legally' get an afr read at 100% throttle, particularly since the servos won't open the butterflies to 100% until 9000rpm.

    That bike is so tiny, you're just perched on top, nothing like our cbr's.

    Fortunately for me, by law it's 20MPH unless otherwise posted in my area. Cops chill around every corner I don't even have the desire to go speeding crazily anyway. I sold my Legacy GT and my WRX and could not be happier. I'm about to buy an even slower car. Thinking about a used civic hybrid, I found one around here for $12k with 36k miles on it.

    My favorite thing is cruise control anytime I can use it. It's like that infomercial rotisserie "set it and, forget it!"

    I just could not justify paying $3k for a ninja or something else along those lines when this was such a kick ass deal. It will also maintain a decent value for resale should I end up way in over my head.

    Assuming I don't kill myself in the process...

    I love the look of the Euro bike... I can't stand the American horse replacement power cruisers.

    But, then again, I'm not allowed to own a bike. That isn't my wife talking, that's all me. The last time I got on a bike it resembled that yellow monster you're posting... my IQ fell far too low to be sane, and I went a bit nuts.

    I made it back after that first ride in one piece, and vowed to never touch the things again. If I do, you'll be hearing about a Sky shaped grease spot on the 6pm news.

    I've got an 82 Chevy Pickup in the garage... she's my toy. Too bad I don't have an income to really care for her these days... but that will change.

    Indeed!

    This is what she reminds me of:


    My mother had a superbee when I was a kid, it was all sorts of awesome with a 440; it was a beast.

    Duuuude! Dang! Nice. Elephant blocks and rear tires...not a lasting relationship! LOL

    I have a spot in my heart for the early Challengers. They also did a great job on the new retro Challengers. Best "retro car" release of the big 3 automakers IMO..but sexier than the Mustang and Camaro releases.

    I concur on that one, they really did a fantastic job reviving a classic with modern tech/style. It feels like it belongs, where as the camaro and mustang are just so-so IMO.

    Random pic from the web, I wish I could afford to grab something like that in restored condition with a big ol' 440 in int.

    EDIT: This one is only $42 grand http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1970-...#ht_637wt_1165
