Are you Justin Bieber? the Swingarm alone is 15k. The BMW is worth the money if you have the $$$ $$$. Every bits on it is sexy!

You don't like the thread just don't read it. I love Kawasaki as much as the other guys on here but totally done with this Gen. Do you want me to talk about the temperature and weather in Comox Valley B.C. right now? You look like a fun guy to hang out with!

Thanks for the video and that ever so helpful advice. I enjoy people’s opinions, but not bitching and moaning. You got to vent, I get it. Nonetheless, it came off as wa wa wa somebody call the wambulance.

I’m not a brand loyalist. Right now I have a 16 Zx10, 16 gsxs1000, and a 2017 R6. And I don’t ride superbikes or super sports on the street. It seems silly to me at this point in my life. But I realize I am in the minority.

Btw it’s 80 degrees here, so let’s talk about the weather in Florida and the track weekend I’m about to have

Another trackday rider which he thinks that his shit doesn't stink hahaahha . Just wanted to start a thread to have fun? Why you such a f*cking homo about it? Maybe you too old to get it? It's been the same bike since 2011. Maybe I don't have nice racetracks all over the place but we do have the best "Isle of Man style of roads" here. Leather head to toes and 3 digits for an hour of 2. I get my dose of adrenaline as well. Keep your 80 degrees.. I live in the biggest playground ever . Fishing, scubadiving, dirt biking, snowboarding, skydiving, surfing. golfing,snowmobiling, hunting the Bigfoot. I can go on forever. Have a good day!

Interesting thread... none the less lol. H2 = POS? Wow. ZX10 old and fat? Hmmm. As for this year having no bikes out there worth owning"...? Dude this was like a fucking stellar year to be an avid motorcyclist. The new KTM's are sick. I'm waiting for the 790 to hit the USA. The new Duc's are way over priced. But fucking monsters. New CBR is a beautiful bike. Not sure about the power... OMG 165hp is not enough lol!!! If I knew for certain the tranny would hold up, I'd get that SP. She's a looker in person and with auto suspension? How can you go wrong? I guess if you are anti-electronics.

Pricing... I get it. Hell, even a new 10r is $16k. Long lost are the good ol' days of $8k liter bikes... and boy do I miss those days.

The 790 is not coming with the underseat exhaust! Gay! The Gen 5 is a good bike but compared to the newer in-line 4 like the Fireblade and the GSX-R, it looks fat. The tach is primitive and the whole bike doesn't have much personality . Planted but just so blah to ride. I'll probably end up with an ugly R1 or GSX-RR if I don't buy the Beemer.

The H2 is just an exhibition bike. No thanks!

I concur on the 790... BUT, I guarantee there will be an aftermarket option for that very problem. Exhaust aside, it looks quite promising.

What about the 1290 SuperDuke? That's about as raw a bike as you can buy. Not into naked??

Sat on it last Saturday. I like it but feels a bit naked?

The 1290 Superduke is really nice with the Austin Racing RS22 exhaust on:

^^^^^^^^^ That i can fap to!!!

Think at this point id ride about nearly anything KTM just to try it.

Honestly, performance wise im just glad about the current situation on bikes because i know they'll be available one day as thats the only way i can afford a bike is a used one, its a weird way to get excited about new bikes lol. Hopefully they'll be available for me down the road when/if my paycheck improves!
