Some people just like to cruise the freeways in style and with speed? Not my thing but I can understand why, for some, it's appealing.

True. The lowered bikes I rode felt like a cruiser going into a turn. You could scrape the pegs without even trying.

BTW, am I the only one that facepalms when I see a lowered, stretched 600? All I can think is "Good thing it's slammed and stretched, otherwise I don't know how he could keep the front wheel down"

Well if you're short thats a little different. Although I had a friend that was barely over 5" and he was able to ride his stock height 1000 with no problem.

I would try to shave the seat before lowering it though.

It may not be fun for you, but it may be the greatest thing in the world to the person who owns it

Didn't see a turbo or bottle but I guess a bottle could be hidden somewhere. Either way a turbo 600 is like a unreliable 1000. It's more cost effective to just buy a 1000 or bigger.

See there's the problem your applying logic to someones modification decisions. It's fruitless, just do what you do and they can do what they do.

Personally I think it's stupid to lower and stretch a bike. But give me a break, none of you do things purely because you think it looks cool. I bet there is at least a few of you that rock basketball shoes that have never touched a court and I know I've met a million of you who rock skate shoes but cannot skate for . But they're comfortable you say, well if you were looking for comfort you would wear Rockports or some Crocs, but you don't because they look stupid. Some of you put clean azz rims on offroad vehicles and Pirelli stickers on bikes with Michelin tires. As for the reasoning behind buying your truck, sure it can be considered practical but that sounds like you experienced some unforeseen advantages to me. I highly doubt when you were sitting at home trying to figure out what vehicle to purchase you said to yourself, "You know my Toyota Corolla has great gas milage but the reduced visibility and inability to get out of the neighborhood during periods of heavy rainfall is beginning to make me think that it just isn't for me anymore."

I would have never believed they would handle as well as they do, I'm sure the specific setup has a lot to do with it though.
What do you call spirited fashion? Also does your bike say R at the end of it?

Ill buy lunch to see this point hit home.

No I've just been around for awhile. My old 6RR had forged pistons from the factory so I was thinking about turboing it for and giggles. After doing some research, I found that most turbo builds were problematic and was about the same speed as a stock 1000, for my bike at least.

Dude Im over 30 have lived in more than 8 states. I have had alot of problems and disadvanatges in my life time. Live a little, and one day when you buy a brand new bike or truck or even a bad azz used on, it will leave you walkin. Try 2 touring trips to San francisco and several more trips over 8 hours away when your cell is not working in podunk kansas and you will then know what its like for the seasoned folks. We's abuy's everything with purpose. Because Sht does happen.

Sure, I'm originally from Michigan, I've been riding for about 5 years now, I've owned a 01 ZX6R, 03 ZX6RR and currently have an 05 10R. Most of my riding in Michigan was twisties and occasional freeway shenanigans. I haven't rode a whole lot since I've been here. Not enough time, too much traffic and a lack of finding good roads near me is the reasons for that. I'm trying to get back into it and have been riding a lot more lately.
