Some usernames get my attention. Sometimes I'm wondering...what's that about? So to start it off, mine is probably pretty obvious. Remember way back when, when Kawasaki came up with the Ninja? And then Honda followed up with the Interceptor. And then briefly with the Hurricane. Maybe that was just here in the U.S.? Anyway, I remember in 86 when the GSX-R's first came to the states. No name game with Suzuki, just those 4 letters. And Yamaha with the FZ's. Honda figured it out pretty quick too and dumped the Hurricane name in favor of the CBR. Only Kawasaki held on, and by God almost 40 years later the Ninja still gets its place on their bikes. Well, actually Honda has used the Fireblade name on their big CBR in Europe since the first one haven't they? So those original slab side Suzuki's had the "R" on the tank and underneath in small letters was "hypersports". Yamaha was right there too with "pure sports". I couldn't get enough of the Suzuki man, so much so that from the word go, all of my online handles and emails have always included some variation of hypersports.
