All true bikers have to go there at least once before they die it holds the sprite of pure motorcycle racing. There is nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

Hadrian, the fireblade is a gorgeous bike, also the Triumph Daytona, the Ducati Monster S2R, Ducati Monster 620 (very sexy)and then you have one of my all time favourites, the BMW R1200C which just oozes sex, it was also the motorbike that James bond used in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Yea, I like the supper bikes best. I am not much into choppers touring bikes. To me the whole point is speed and power. Can see why else you would get on one. I am luckily that I have the shape I do I got short legs and long body it fits the Blade perfect. I can go all day on one and not get tired.

The Ducati is cool but the Honda is so reliable and lasts and lasts. The Italian bikes are beautiful to look at but they can give a very inconsistent ride from bike to bike even in the same model and year.  You really need an experienced mechanic to set them up and keep them sweet, and all this adds to the cost of running them apart from there higher purchasing price.  I donít think it worth it.

I prefer to ride the bike then look at it and when you on its all about performance. I could not care less what others thing about my bike. In fact I prefer the get the least attention I can. Itís on the track or the road that you find what a bike all about. Looks are only faring deep. One might laugh or turn up there nose at the mass-produced Hondas or other Japanese Bikes but the do just what they say they do. I had a 1992 original Blade a couple of years ago it was every bit as good as the day it was built. In fact it was better with the new tyres we have now and the jets  and pipes I put on it. it was well able of 160 mph plus. A bike over ten years old.

Very true. My manager was torn between a honda and Ninja. He had a Nija before I believe and he loved it, but was saying the Honda was more comfortable and faster. I don't know which one he went for in the end as he got another job, I expect he went with the Honda though.

I wish I could ride though, really need to look into getting a licence ;)

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.

Hadrian,

What about the Suzuki Bandit 650? Heard much about these?
If I ever get a licence and if these are good then this would be the bike for me ;)
