    If you could have one free and clear, which one would it be?

    for me, I'd look a lot more at home on the Rigid, but I'm a speed freak.

    R1= :hitit:

    I'd rather have a CBR1000RR over an R1, but of the two above, R1.

    I'd take the chopper

    R1 + Boots = instant death

    I'd take number 1, because for some reason they are insanely expensive.
    So, I could sell it to some rich wannabe, take the cash, buy a CBR1000RR + Titanium Akrapovic full exhaust system, a PowerCommander III, frame sliders, some assorted carbon fiber goodies and pay for a years insurance with gas money left over.

    Then I'd look better (IMO), be faster, more reliable, better handling and actually more comfortable...


    *Edit: But if I didn't have the choice of selling it and I had to keep it, I'd take the chopper because I've already got a CBR600... I don't need two sportbikes....

    id take a chopper, but not that chopper, when i was older... but any sport bike (over 750cc) + Me = death... so right now id have to say maybe a CBR600 or R6... i guess we'll just have to see waht i get this summer.

    yeah, price wise, the chopper costs about $50,000 more than the R1.

    Sounds like a deal. :) Keep me in mind.
    .. and chances are you won't find a better used one.. ask 96AccordEX, or DJQ, or Shafft etc. how I am about my vehicles. :)

    The F4i only has 2800km on it and it's had..um...3 oil changes... :D

    Bah.. newer ones crash cheaper.. more plentiful parts. :D

    Seriously though, only get something you are comfortable with and can afford. And yes, your first bike is probably better off being an older bike.

    But, that being said, my first bike was a 99 CBR600F4... and that was in 2000....

    I hate the big whjeel gap on choppers - i think it just looks way too empty between the front wheel and the body

    Hmmmmmm......let me think. Haha, if you're giving it to me, fuck what it's worth, 12 bar and a FI crash cage would make for too much fun on the R1. :lol: I'd love to beat the fuck out of a brand new bike...lol
