I bought one of my dream bikes in 09, a Duc 1198 with full Ohlins from Dan Kyle, and even rode a few before buying it including a 1098R. After about 1500 miles I knew it wasn't for me, I just couldn't do it anymore. I put couple thousand more miles on it and sent it off to it's new home in mid 11 and haven't looked back.
love my zx6r, it is a pleasure to ride and I am perfectly comfy riding on it all day.
Ninja 250, I really thought it would be great to save on gas so I bought one new in 03, peppy motor, light and handled well in traffic, felt like I was riding on a 4x4 and after a half hour I would have visions of riding it into a borrow pit and just leaving it.
Ducati 996, hands down one of the best looking bikes ever made, I had the chance to rock one at the track, and I couldnt wait to get off it, very boring powerwband IMO and I really didnt like the over the front wheel feeling.
Honda CBX 6 cyl motorcycle, my god that thing was freaky to ride, every corner I just waited for it to fall over uhggg.
Gonna add the Z1000 to that list, powerplant was fine, but the bike itself felt very unstable to me.
