Cool

Honda--- Always have owned Honda, even as a kid and riding my CR Dirt bikes. I just like the quality and the know how that backs their machines up. At the street bike level expecially when your riding them primarily on the street they are all mostly good bikes. It just depends on what you feel fits you the best and maybe a certain style you like.

Honda cause I currently have two, well I gave my f3 to my brother so I guess just one. I started out on a 96 f3 about 7 years ago and never had any problems with it. I GAVE it to my brother and that thing still runs great. You just can't kill those motors !!!!

Honda!
I've beaten the out of them for years! They hold up better than any other of the main stream japs, at least for me!
I've blown a few slowsucki motors, shatterd a hand full of yamahahah transmissions, and spun bearings and floated vales in kawis.. so far, I've yet to blow a honda up. They crash well too
I have to tip my hat to the Honda engineers.
But all bikes these days are so close to each other off the show room.. its hard to say whos better and why, its just a rider preference

watch this before you buy a new bike, take note at what ALL the test riders say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obRzUQHlzrA

Don't waste your time anywhere.

Just do your self a favor by buying a Yamaha and then thank me later.

The real champs ride it, like Rossi.

Unlike fake champs riding around with number "1" on their bike that cant even finish in top 5 and have a long list of excuses!

What ever you do stay away from Honda - they have a history of running out of gas (Al - Knee_Dragger), require excessive warming up time (Will - A303) & are just plain simple put a POS (Chris - IpK460)


hehe..


Flame Suit On..




















On a serious note - get any bike, nowadays they are all made so close together it really does'nt matter on hp or torque. Go for either:

1) The best deal you get

or

2) What ever appeals to you more (look wise).

Performance & Handling wise they are all very close. All of them will do the job and in style.

Either way enjoy your new bike..

rossi will ride who ever pays him the most
the gp bikes dont even compare to the mass production over the counter models anyway.

excessive warm up time? bah, there just cool running bikes

running out of gas? oh come on now

anywho, i agree with you after you put your flame suite on, thats all on the money, but i still recommend honda

Honda have never had a problem with them. But you really have to sit on them all, they all feel different to me and that is a big factor depending how how you ride and where - street or track.

all of the above + Ducks, triumphs, bimota, MV's etc.. all great bikes it's a matter of preference.






















GSX-R 750 is still the best bike ever made(well at least up to today )

Only problem with an R6, R1 or gsxr 750 is I can not go out and ride without seeing thousands of them, why the would you want a bike that everyone else has?

Yamaha... it is my first bike and so far has held up well... no major issues... I read somewhere in a thread that Yamaha makes engines for Toyota... I don't know, but like one of the posters above me stated, many of the bikes are so similar that it really doesn;t matter....

Honda is cool, that was the bike I used ride (didn't own it though)... but that bike was awesome.... Honda is a reputable company and never had issues with them...
