For most, being brand specific is sort of a playful joke, but for some, well, there's only one brand of bike for them. Why?
good question. i play around with "suzuki only" but honestly theyre all great bikes to me. im only "style specific" more than anything else. i like fully faired supersports above all else. beyond that, not too picky. i like them all.

I love my Honda and my Chevy and plan to stay with them for a while.


I picked my honda because it fits me well and because the f4i has been abused by many stunters with few problems. I'm not to set on any brand as all bikes have goods and bads. All I can say is to research before you buy. Find known problems with models. Are aftermarket parts made for that model? Are replacement parts easy to find/priced right? Is the bike easy to work on? And all that blah blah blah bull like that.

I'm in love with my Honda. But don't worry Suzuki guys... the last race quad I owned was Suzuki I really was impressed with the LTR-450

3640011092 1a2459e155 o

However, as far as bikes go... I like how the Honda fit me the best Now I can't see myself owning anything else right now

Hondas aren't without their problems and they have, by far, the least comfortable seats of all sportbikes. , I think the 999R seat was better than my buddy's '05 CBR1000RR.
