poutanen Okay this is the only place it seemed appropriate to gloat: I think I need to get some pucks for my snowboarding pants! Conditions were great for carving this weekend and I ended up touching a knee a few times...

ShredLife there were some vintage ducs and guzzis and some sport bikes there too, but the best stuff imo were the harleys and the jap bikes.




two of the electrics:

EatRideSleep Nice. Endos are my favorite. What, no love for Suzuki? I'm a sport bike girl myself. Going for my license this spring, hopefully. I say that every year ha. Easily delayed as I get my bike fix via guys I know and guys I've dated

Been to the Int'l show at Javitz many years until it basically turned into the OCC shit show Last I went was maybe 2-3 yrs ago. Fell in love with a vintage Ducati at a Javitz show however that will be mine some day.

edit: didn't read through all before posting hence my response is to the OP. Otherwise it doesn't make much sense at this point in the thread haha.

ShredLife it was sooo fucking sick. so many sick chops. ..knuckle after knuckle after pan after pan... plus sick evos, and a bunch of old xs' and cbs and stuff.... everything really.

one of my favorites was a completely custom, frame-up sportster turned street fighter. ugh - so many sick knuckleheads...

all kinds of cafes, bmws, yamaha xs', honda cbs, sportsters, knuckles, triumphs... there was a salt-flat triumph with two motors in it... there were a few electric bikes from brammo, one custom electric race bike done by icon.. probably 3-5 icon builds there.

it was great. makes me want to get another bike to hack on real bad

Jealous! I would have loved to go to that show. I absolutely love cafe style customs! How was it?

FZ9 has 115 hp and 65 lb-ft of torque or so (the R6 has more HP but less torque), and the wet weight is actually 40 pounds less on the FZ9 vs R1.

On the track there would be no comparison, but on the street I actually think the FZ9 would be a more enjoyable bike, by far...
If you spend more time on the street I'd definitely go with the FZ9. The fun factor outweighs the speed on the track

Pigpen Go to a MotoGP race (if there's any near you), it's INSANE. They literally fly past you at 160 in a turn and you can barely see them. Looks scary as hell but thrilling.

I do miss riding, but for the amount that I'd get to use it, I'm better off renting a bike for a weekend every summer.
Supermoto takes care of all that, you just need to tell it where to go!

Yeah if your busy in the summer (easy in this city!) then renting would be choice. Too easy to rip into the Rockies for a weekend.
