Any bike owners out there???

Hey all,

just wondering if there are any motorcycle peeps here... I just bought my motorcycle last summer... its a 99 Honda F4, its nestled in the garage right next to my 3... pics are up on my cardomain page...

thats pretty much gonna be the ultimate conflict this summer: taking the 3 or the bike out on a nice summer day? Although if thats the biggest problem i have, looks to be a relaxing summer...

Chicago recently got into the 50's... we're back to the 30's right now, but soon enough, time for the bike to come back out...

any bike peeps out there???

I had one, a 2002 black suzuki hayabusa and it got stolen. probably one of the worst days of my life . I miss that thing soo much. If anyone is ever considering getting one, just take a ride and you will know it is one of the best things in the world. I am going to get another one when I get out of college but right now I cant afford it after i just got the 3.

I love my motorcycle! This past summer I decided to take a motorcycle safety course on a whim. The next day I bought a blue 2001 Suzuki SV650! The bike is amazing. I'll drive it rain or shine, cold or wet...but only cause it's the only way to park on campus.

I was actually debating between getting a sweet sport tourer (Honda VFR800) and getting a 3, but the 3 was just too good to pass up, plus it's dry inside.

If you are thinking of getting a bike, try it, but be safe. I've seen some messed up stuff with idiots that think they can ride in shorts, without a helmet, or while driving 100+ mph on normal roads. Like this one guy that split himself in two then fell 100 ft from an interchange to land on the highway below. All that aside, nothing really beats knowing that you can beat a Ferrari Enzo on a $3k machine!

In a perfect world, the Mazda3 would have a retractable sunroof so that I could drive the 3 and take my bike with me wherever I go.

Once you get on a bike you can never truly get it out of your system.

(dino instead of being a "Bicycle Racer" could I be a "Motorcycle Racer"?)

One of my friends DOES ride. And it doesn't make it any easier.

I want to get a Suzuki sv650 or Honda 599 but I also don't want to skid 500' and live. :shock: Of course... the speeds I want to go no leathers can protect me I think I'll stick with 4 wheels until I get older.

Hey the SV only goes 125mph...you'll be as safe as an egg in a metal bucket.

Had a Yamaha RX King 125cc long time ago. Been thinking of getting a Honda RC51. Maybe in the next 2 years or so.
