He didn't say he was planning to tow stalled cars.

Just imagine sitting in the endless S Florida traffic on a 95 degree day sitting on a GSXR750 or a CB1000RR with all the heat those high output engine generate.

Re: Longnazi and the Seven Swift Boat Dwarfs are the best

Imagine how good he'll be at it when he's finally old enough to get a license.

Re: Get one of those new Buell Lightning CITYX bikes

Haters who have absolutely no experience with them but somehow still know everything about them.

Re: Is the GSX-R 750 enough?

I'm still trying to figure out just where in S. Florida anyone is going to use the top speed of either bike. So, a CBR is what, 15mph faster than the GSXR? What difference does it make on public roads? Does he desire to be frog marched to jail instead of merely handcuffed? Is that it?

Point taken. I feel the same way about American passenger cars.

Ya gotta admit though that most of the haters haven't ever sat on a Buell, much less ridden or owned one.

Addendum

I was looking at some stats and noticed that even my 13 year old boat anchor of a shaft drive air-oil cooled ancient obsolete Suzuki 1100G gets a 0-60 of 3.1 seconds. Quicker than the latest wunderbike. Sure, it'll go wailing by me by the time I hit 100MPH, but there's not much use for that performance curve on the street.

Nope. Race replicas are not suited to urban warfare. The gearing is all wrong, not to mention the heating problems and visibility and quickness of steering issues.

Go with the Speed Triple. Yes. Mmmmmmmm. Speed Triple.

Re: 1950's tech

Actrually inline-4s have been around since the 1910s.

Re: Dwarfs and Trolls

Gosh. It's only been two weeks since you last posted on MO. That's a record. Usually it takes two months or more for you to string this many words together.

After consideration I'd say your best choices would be an SV650, a Concours or a VFR (older one).
