i think the lights in the mirrors is a conspiracy to keep street-riders from taking the mirrors and or turn signals off.

It looks better in those pics. On the website I thought it looked like complete dog shit. I guess I should see it in person before I make a judgement.

I can't believe I think this, but Kawi has the best looking jap liter for 08

the first time i saw the 08 CBR1000rr I thought it looked like hammered dog shit.. The all black one is the only one that is starting to grow on me a little. I cant say its one of the bikes that i'm waiting to see show up at our dealership. the zx10 on the other hand looks pretty dope. I'm more excited about yamaha going back to Raven black instead of that gunmetal crap.

introducing the all new 2008 Honda R1!!! That thing looks like something Yamaha has already produced. Don't get me wrong (i love hondas, started on a honda), but it really looks like a knock off IMHO. With that said, I would still roll it! I am really diggin the black one!

the funky exhaust pipes all the manufactures are going to is due to emissions, some have converters already.

LOL at 170 hp.

It's a honda, it's power is overrated and it will be overweight compared to the rest in it's class.

Oh, and at daytona after bragging about power it will get it's ass handed to it by the suzukis.

i dont know about the 1000rr but the 07 cbr600rr cleaned house on everybody last year, if honda took what they did to the little cbr to heart the big brother might have a chance

Yeah, but that's an easy aftermarket fix. after looking a little closer it looks like an 07 R6 rear ended a Ducati. It looks like it's slimmed down, possible weight savings?

zrx 1200 ?

Anyone have any seat time on a zrx 1200, any info on plusses or negatives? I finally got tired of the cruisers and want something for a little speed fix, while still not wanting to fall right back into the full fairing sport bike look. I am looking to get one, or something similar, that has a late 70's early 80's ujm look. The last liter sports bike I owned was a zx11. I assume its similar. Any ideas on other makes that are not far off in design and style?

Check out the Yamaha Maxim X. It's got a sporty cruiser style, and the hot sportbike motor of that year. My best friends got one, and it'll keep up with my R6.

Too much rake/trail, skinny tires, shaft drive and less ground clearance FTL..

As long as he's not into ripping up twisties, thats a kickass bike to get into. I'd take a V-Max over the Maxim for that kind of bike though..

That classy Lawson tribute bike up top is a 2007, and even the 1981 model would woop on that maxim.

So many bad thoughts on that visual Good way to get bitchslapped too if it shocked her Disconnect the kill switch from the harness and see what happens. Is it in gear? check the coil to see if it is grounded. There arent that many components to the ignition on that thing. Should be pretty easy to find.

I'm thinking about riding to Monroe, Louisiana this saturday, for a wedding.

Wonder how the weather will treat me
