i can not count all the bikes i have owned over the years, i own 9 at the moment...in a way i have been satisfied with all of them... imo there is no perfect one bike... too many things i like to do on a bike, too many kinds of rides...each bike is a bit different in what they do well and where they fall short...
currently i own two 200cc bikes, a susuki dr and a yamaha tw, i like them both, even though they are the same size and both are dual purpose, the ride of each is different and i would pick which one based on where and how i was going to ride it.
depending on the ride i am going to do, at times i choose the road king, other rides i might take the sportster and if i am going to play on the street i would use the cbr...i love the little mini-tard at tmgp and now i have a new mini-gp to try out...to me if you are satisfied with a bike or not says more about if you are using the right bike for the ride you are doing

I'm pretty satisfied with my ZX10, weekend rides, commuting, track days or throw the soft bags on it and take a longer ride. It does it all just fine, and after 24k on the clock it is still mostly stock.

[QUOTE=Volfy;3458744]Love to see Hannibal Lecter quoted.

Only Volfy would have gotten my Hannibal Lecter line.
I think the main reason I am not 100% satisfied with any of my bikes is becuase each one of them performed a specific task in my life. My FZ6R was a great commuter, my FJR was a perfect sport tourer, my Raider was an awesome cruiser, my R1 was just the ! I think the secret is to be rich as and own at least 5 different type bikes. even then I probably wouldn't be satisfied. I still haven't tried my hand at a Streetfighter yet.

Honestly man, rest and staying indoors and away from others is the best way the get better. Vicks Vapor rub, Niquil, and Mucinex D should do the trick. Vietnamese Pho is pretty good as well.

All the bikes I have ever owners were street bikes. Yes if I was going to do some adventure or off road riding, my bike would not be suitable for the terrane. Btw. I have been tinkering with the idea of some sport adventure riding.

i have to limit the number of bikes i own at any one time, it is not the expense of the bike so much as it is the cost of a place to keep them.

Just need to put some updates on it. 12 years old tech is OLD!

My TLR weighs about the same as an average 600, has a better suspension, more HP and a bunch more TQ.

It won't hang with a newer liter on top end but on the backroads its plenty capable.

I really love my 2003 CBR 954RR, especially after I just changed the steering stem bearings out for tapered bearings which has reduced the nasty head shake I was getting. Would I like a s1000RR or a Panigale? Sure!

But, I am gonna hold onto this bike for a while and have some fun with it, it's plenty fast and plenty agile. Just going to upgrade bits here and there, and work on becoming a better rider.
