Re: Im i a traitor???

CBR is a fantastic all rounder, the R6 is more of a race orientated machine (but not so much as the GSX-R)

IMO the GSX-R is a weekend warrior's bike, the bike equivalent of a Subaru Impreza - very good bike, superb performance, but more than a little cliche'd.

When I get my big bike I'm thinking of a Triumph Daytona (although I DO have a yearning for naked bikes like the Ducati monster or a bandit or the new Hornet)

Way too much choice in the bike world Whichever you go for you'll get a decent machine.

Friend of mine has a Honda CBR 1100 and he was trying to tell me that it's a bike that encourages you to go slowly …

Re: Im i a traitor???

go with the cbr mate,it does everything you'll want it to do, and some!If i had the choice i'd have a ducati as a second bike,check insurance quotes as well,the ducati will probably be a couple of groups higher than the honda

A slow motorbike thats a moped isn't it? Pretty pointless having a slow bike but then i see its a 1100 so not that slow. My first car only had 903cc! Cheap motoring, cheap looks ... yep everything was cheap. Happy days

Re: Im i a traitor???

im after a CBR600RR 2006 actually.

my cousin bought a CBR600RR '07, my mate a GSX-R 600 K8 and another friend a GSX-R 1100 '04 so its a lot of pressure from the Jap club :P

I have a Honda Deauville, so i am a traitor, I have been very tempted by a Ducatti, and if i was buying my current bike right now, i think i would go Italian

BF, my mate has a CBR600RR and claims the same, funnily enough he got caught speeding last night!

Re: Im i a traitor???

Has to be GSXR all the way, I had one and it was probably the most fun machine I've ever driven/ridden ... yes definitely a weekend warrier machine, if you're looking for something cheap to run then forget it, MPG was the same as my car, and a rear tyre would only last about 4k (at 150 a pop that is quite expensive)


Hate to say it ... but bigger smiles than my Alfa <- yes even bigger than that!!!!

The B4, first with the 6 pot calipers and had the full fat engine. I prefer heavier bikes so the B4 suits my riding style a bit better than the newer bikes

A bike isn't a car, it may not be italian but it's damned nice. A good choice if you ask me...
