I saw the description and said "daamn!" (200hp, ohlins all around, 342 lbs. dry...)

Then saw the estimated MSRP and said "daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!" ($65k)

If you think one round headlight is fun, you should upgrade to two! (not my pic, unfortunately):

Thanks, checked the site, no FZ6 listed.


I found maybe 2 or 3 different windscreens and they're all in the $180-200
range, and tiny (which I like), but I paid $100 for a screen 4 times that
flyscreen size for my Kawasaki 650R years ago (MRA) and for $180 I
got a screen for my scooter that can be used as a surf board!

I can understand the money involved there for that much material and
shaping, but NOT for a freakin' fly screen! Someone posted a "generic"
chinese screen that he bought for his SV650 here, like a mini fairing around
the headlight and the screen, it was like freaking 20 dollars!



Sorry, rant over.

What bike do I want today?

This one:


What?!
I'm in my 186mph+ mood!

I love how comfy the 'busa is. But every time I ride one I'm doing triple digits just going through the gears and not getting in a hurry.

It needs some kind of engine crippling mode like the one Mopar uses on their Hemis (MDS) where it runs on 2 cylinders til you hit WOT or something.

Or, I just need to not ride them.

And "they" say the ZZR1400 (ZX14) is even more comfortable.
Decisions!


2 cylinder ECO mode would be fun, [does the math], ok, we got 670cc parralel twin
(LOL, that's a NC700 right there), with around 90hp. That should be enough for
cruising up to 120mph+ on that bike, and could save a lot of fuel in low revs.

Was a bit chilly today, so:


Only in that new spiffy white they're using for the F800GT

(The ~158 hp is just a bonus.)

I find myself really lusting after the Ducati 848 Evo. Like, ready to buy one next spring if the chance arises. What should I know about them?

The solidus between Standard and UJM means "and/or" doesn't it? There's a Honda below it.
