Thats why the SR 400 single is produced again and fairly popular in Europe and Australia also in USA.
If you can start it you can ride it

Don't we all have a devil inside of us (I know I do) saying "Why stop at 200hp or 300kmh? Go ahead and make them faster and more powerful, no such thing as too fast."

"Though of course I wouldn't actually buy one myself.........."   :lol8:

I also doubt whether the new R1 will even make 200HP, the Japs are just too conservative. That Yamaha can do it is common knowledge.

Are they perhaps going ahead with the TZR1000? :peepwall:

It's nice...but just one thing please...can bike manufacturers not redesign the back indicators to be integrated in the "arse" of the bike......like the Suzuki GSXR has done for years...it just looks so much better.

In some countries, this is not allowed and it allows them to make more money of us buy selling it as an extra.

My Dear loving wife.

I know that you wanted to go to germany next week, go see the sites and enjoy a romantic night infront of the fire place.

The photos we have seen on the internet and the stories we have read make it sound like a dream come true.

I unfortunately have to work during our planned holiday and therefore will suffer from depression and require something to help me through this tough time...

....I believe the answer is in the attached photo and I know you love me and understand my needs.

Your loving husband

If you want a pretty Jap superbike, buy a current R1 or ZX10 now!

The H2 and R1 might be insane but they're fookin hideous.
