          Bill I was just thinking the other day how much I miss the torque of my old 919... The motor made the right noises for me. Oh well.

              Sad thing is I just saw a 2002 model the other day for a song. Like 2500, I am sure it could have been talked down to 2k though, knowing what i know about the first years, lol.

                  For me it's not the overall amount of power avalibal that makes the bigger bikes fun. It's the ease of which I can get to that powee that I like.

                  By the time my 600 i4 is in the power I'm able to be arrested.

                  The 954 I get to feel it very time I stop. I can pop wheelies over train tracks and dips in the road by breathing on the throttle. I like being able to leave black marks out of 90degree corners witbout breakgin a sweat. I like staying in top gear on the highway and still being able to telling at my self in front of anyone else on the road if needed.


                  The stability and size of the older big bikes is nice too.

                  Oh, and no one ever says "my brother has one, but his is the 1000." Or "aren't you a little big for a 600?" So I'm far lest likely to get into a parking lot bitch slapping.

                  That said, my last one lead to three felony convictions..., So....

                    Well yeah. In addition to "I always wanted one" the 900RR has a reputation as a 'streetable' literbike.

                    I looked at the Gen1 R1, but it was just way more uncomfortable. This thing has a motor that can do 40k miles with basic maintenance, a tail trunk that will fit my lunch, and is way smoother on the highway than a Hawk.

                    The vintage goodness just means that I get street cred without having to keep up with the latest and greatest.

                      Careful of that #3 cylinder. IIRC there is an issue with it not getting enough oil if the bike spends too much time on one wheel. We had a few of them we bought blowed up back in the day at my old shop.


                      The first gen r1 is also a FANTASTIC bike. I would have a hard time choosing between the two... They are SO different. but both SO cool.

                            I donít know, that one looks fancy, but all that polishing might be irreversible.

                            Iím 100% behind you on the bar risers though, Iím definitely going that way with my bike - thanks for the link!

                              Those ARE nice aren't they? If you Black anodize polished aluminum....it comes out like smoky and wild looking.It's an awesome look.
