Bike are great. A mate of mine used to have this Italian bike, I'm calling it Italian because I'm sure it was an Italian make, just can't remember what it was. Anywho, it was a beast, he gave me a lift on it one time, I was scared s***less holding onto the bar at the back while he was doing wheelies. It was fun though :)

I have been on a few of them. They are a fast and reliable bike. I personally donít like the ride because you are always sitting upright like on a chopper. So you get blasted on long rides or if you open it up. I got a sore neck once from riding one to hard, but to those who donít mind this they are very powerful and fun the drive.


What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

OOOH, I rode alot on the back with my hubby when we were dating up until I was pregnant with my Daughter, We rounded a corner on a rainey evening and back tire hit a man hole cover and bike almost went down.. I was about 5 months pregnant! It scared the soup out of me so I have not been back on since. I must say I have been practicing riding as I purchased last year a new scooter, Yellow like the bike above only its more my speed about 45 miles an hour! Cool Beans Just right for me as I wouldn't know how to haandle a bigger one!



I had a motorbike for a couple of years.  Going down did not worry me (I'd fallen off horses before, and it is no worse).  What scared me was when I got side swiped by a car, and I realised that if he had impacted me a fraction of a second earlier my left leg would have been in several more pieces than it was designed to be Ė that was when I gave up riding motorcycles.

I have known several people who like riding motorcycles, and although some have never been in a serious accident, there are a good few that are carrying a fair amount of metal where bone should be (must make for fun at airport security checks).

I remember when I was coming back from New York, the blast metal detector kept on going off.......I think the woman was near to telling me to pull my trousers down, it was my belt buckle in the end [V] ;)

Ninja is very good bike indeed extremely fast. Only a few riders can or will ever get to use the top end it offers on the road. Its not as smooth in delivery as the blade and catch you out is the over do it. Unlike the blade its not as forgiving so is a more demanding bike for most riders. If you want a constant challenge then is has it on tap. You can ride the blade like a ***** cat ( only in the usa is a house cat a dirty word p u s s y cat ) or turn it into a Cheetah with out to much danger it will do something silly on you.

I also like the YZF-R1 itís the only bike I would take over the blade except itís not as comfortable for me to ride but is a more nimble ride, quicker in and out of corners and get on the power very fast. In the right hands it hard the beat on the road because of this. But then there you have it so much comes down to the rider style and there skill.

Of course there are some out and out racers on the market that offer fantastic track performance but make terrible road bikes like the Ducati 999. So powerful coming out of corners and very quick to stop they are a joy to use on a track. But on the road they make you ache all over after an hour and in slow traffic you just want to get off and walk.  Just like the monster too.
