    I know there are a bunch of Harley freaks here, but some of us are either anti-Harley, can't afford it or just don't like cruisers in general, so what'ca got?

    Personaly, I don't like cruisers in general. Don't like how they sit, ride, feel, performance......give me a sportbike or powerhouse.:sifone:

    Here are my 3:
    '94 Yamaha V-max
    '99 Triumph Daytona 955i
    '99 Ducati 996s #5 of 200 for that year.

    Go look at the Councours 14, very nice sport touring, too much power for me but I bought one anyway, I think it has 138 hp, speedo reads 185, never will see that with me on the saddle.....

    Not a huge Concorse fan, but that is one hell of a machine that has stood the test of time. One of the best all around bikes ever made.:thumbsup:

    I had an '02 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R I sold a couple winters back. A great bike, and boy do I miss it. Was yellow and black with the Kawasaki/Chevy Trucks racing decals. K&N air filter and a Yoshimura exhaust were the only things I did to it. Topped it out at 110 mph once, didn't relize just how fast I was going until I looked down at the speedo. Never ran it over 90 after that. I wasn't ever a speed freak about it, I just enjoy crusing around on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Putting on a good 300-400 miles on a trip. I would like to get another sportbike someday soon, but both I and the wife favor getting a crusier next. I'm one of the few I think that really enjoy both kinds of motorcycles, the sportbikes are so sexy looking, nice body lines, and go fast machines; but at the same time I love the look of any of the Softails or Dynas. Maybe that's why I really like the V-rods, best of both worlds.

    Edit: I'll have to dig up some pics of it for you guys. All the pictures I took of it was before I had my digital camera, actually took pics on real film, back in the day!
