She weighs roughly 419lbs. wet, and is pushing roughly 146hp at the crank. 0-100mph in less then 6 seconds. I have it up to an indicated 142mph, and there was plenty left.

Re: Pics of my bike for Alan

Glad to see you got a real bike.

I guess if you can't afford a 1098 Ducati, this is the next best thing.

Both developed by Australian riders. The two Troys.

Re: Pics of my bike for Alan

I never liked Ducati's. I would get a BMW HP2 Sport or new S1000RR over a 1098 ANY DAY, never mind the new Aprilia RSV4. Now this is a hot bike:

I like all the European sports bikes. They all have the engine output centered around useful torque, not like the Japs that center it solely on peak HP.
It makes the bike more ridable, they can pull a higher gear through the corner, instead for shuffling through a few gears to try to keep the power flowing.

The Ducati has proven to be the top of the Super Bikes for a few years, due manly to the Desmodromic valve gear.

A good buddy of mine races a Suzuki GSX-R1000 and taught me a lot about the differences in riding a I-4 versus a V-Twin. He's used to the I-4 for racing, but said he would take my V-Twin for day to day riding in a heartbeat. I'd like to spend some more time on a Triumph. I rode a Speed Triple but didn't like it much. A Sprint ST would be my first choice, and if they ever put the 1050cc Triple in a sportbike like a Daytona. The 955i was a nice bike, but the current 675 is lighter and faster.

Scorching hot. Yeah! Me likeee

I would agree with your friend Tiger. V twins give better low end response on the road. Almost like comparing a V8 to a straight 6 or 4.

But I like Ducatis, although I have not yet bought one. I'm fond of V4s and straight 4s, still.

Using it as a police pursuit vehicle are ya? I can't believe the new Ape Shiver is as portly as it is considering their porkless past.

There's a 95 Daytona forsale on Lanc Craigslist for a very reasonable $1500. If the wife didn't just fork over way too much for a plasma tv it would have already been in the garage.

Re: Pics of my bike for Alan

Im not riding a sport bike per say, more of a roadster.

Either way I love my BMW R1150R.
