I think of the GPZ/Ninja being the start of the modern sportbike. Of course I'm sure Albie will set me straight on that...
'83 GPZ 550 was my first sport bike. Bought it here in Fayetteville from Bill Eddy's.

In sport bike terms, my '07 Gixxer is old tech. No fly by wire, no traction control, No BPF. Sport bikes are the fastest developing segment in the industry. That's not my opinion, that's just simple fact.

BTW, try spending time on the RC 51, or 929, or 954. Those Honda's had some of the most uncomfortable seats ever created! By comparison, my '99 R6, and '00, and '01 R1 seats were like sitting on a couch. Honda just didn't know what the hell they were doing. Even the later year CBR RR's suck compared to other 3 Jap bike brands.

Yeah. Take that KLR out on the Blue Loop and find my kickstarter. Perfect bike for the job.

That, ericdb7g, was a thinly veiled invitation to "hook up". Be afraid, be very afraid....esp. if he offers to "take you for a ride" after brekie.

I'm headed out there tomorrow as soon after 11 a.m. (end of my shift) as possible. I'll be on the Husky and scouring the woods for that expensive little bastard. Nice and slow. Want to go?

I'm bored out of my skull, too hot, bikes down for maintenance, and I hurt too much to do much. UGH!

Want some company? I do slow well. Just ask Moe, Curly or Larry.

Maybe you could ride 2-up with Scribe and help him look for his missing part. He might even show you his elephant.

I'm afraid that wouldn't work. Seems Scribe only has eyes for Dr. Z when it comes to 2upping it. Plus, I heard that elephant is more like a mouse.
