      Yea, the issue with most of the sporty I-4s is that the first gear is so tall already so that its a usable gear when you're on the track. Both my 600RR and my R6 redline somewhere around 80-85 mph...

      I agree with most of this, but I didn't really want to beat a dead horse like the car magazines have been doing about the steering and sound deadening. Yes, it has numb steering. I had no issues...

      Hey that thing is pretty cool! Have you looked into getting a mountain bike fork/wheels on that thing? I'll bet you could drop some weight and get better brakes if you were interested in that kind...

      See the thing is, its nothing like a manual. There's not really any involvement unless you want it. Its just in the right gear all the time

      The automatic transmission. Holy **** this 8 speed rocks my socks off. I love manuals, but geez, I'd have a tough time choosing on this car, especially since the new 3 Series feels so massive and...

      Yea, you're doing fine. The question about the reserve had me confused though. So you're going 100 miles and only putting in ~2 gallons of gas?

      People get bailouts because innocent people will be harmed if the people being bailed out are allowed to fail.

      This website is awesome! I had no idea that it existed. That r6 for 2800 bucks looks pretty awesome, too bad its in New Mexico. I'm thinking this is the way to go.

      I'm curious, how are you calculating your mileage? I'm hoping its (miles driven)/(gallons put in)

      Yea, I didn't have one on my CBR and I did okay. I just really like it on the r6. I don't really need one but it'd be nice.



      Yea basically. It's kinda dumb but I'd like to cash out the r6 I've...

      I figured someone would say SV650. I hate the excessive engine braking on the SV. If I could somehow retrofit an IACV to it like honda has on the 07+ CBRs, I'd be in.

      this this this. I'd love a Tesla if I had the money. I'm not sure what they cost though.
    15. Should I buy a Gixxer (bro?) (this thread is about track bikes)

      I posted a couple months ago about wanting a new bike. My R6 has all the typical annoying street riding issues of a supersport bike and I hate riding it slow. I thought about buying a monster or a...

      On my CBR 600RR, I accidentally put a 520 kit for a 1000RR on it that had a 1 tooth higher front and 2 tooth less on the back. The chain length stayed the same, but I put a new one on anyways.

      Nice work in this thread! I'm not really into the "custom scene" but you've got skills and I'm jealous. However, I just wanted to point something out here:

      This x10000. My first car was a hand-me-down 91 Saturn SL and it was a pretty good car, I thought it handled well and the motor made decent torque down low despite only having 85 hp. The first year...

      That one you posted the pic of has the new 11-speed 105, and last year's had Sram Rival. Its weird that the one you're looking at has Sram Apex on it.

      EDIT: It appears that the website is ****ed...

      I'm not saying it won't be durable, and I'm certainly not saying it won't be fun, but when people say reliable, it generally means they don't want to have to work on the car. This is not a Prius or...
