As if the E55 wasn't trouble enough. . .

Well, sold my old one to my best friend with the condition that I get to buy it back if he ever sells it, been waiting ever since. Called him up and asked "ready to sell it back to me", he said "You know we're boys but I don't think I can ever sell it". . . found this one in Minnesota . . . not the lightest, fastest or most powerful, but damn if it isn't the best I've ever ridden.

Nice bike, looks like trouble indeed!

I got to ride my buddy's Hayabusa last weekend. It's stretched, turbo'd and a bunch more. I would love to own another bike but I can't seem to stay out of trouble on them.

Always liked the RC51s - the sound with aftermarket pipes is intoxicating. Ride with a guy that has one with aftermarket bars on it because of a bad back - the thing is a wheelie machine with those tall bars on it

I bought my 'Busa in 02 - still in love with it today.




[email protected] in the 1/8, plus I can tour on it.

E55 w/ goods, Z32 Project underway
Nice, though insurance, inevitable laying it down, etc keeps me away. Street bike=ticket every time, no wiggle room with cops when your on a bike.

Nice looking bike.
I miss my ZX12R. I am glad I sold it though... was trouble from the beginning. No tickets, however, it was only a matter of time...171 WHP. What a beast on two wheels.

Why are you guys worried about tickets? I'd be worried for my life lol.
Just had a chat about it with a very good friend of mine who's not afraid of tickets since the first (and only) time he stopped (3 years ago) for a dick and got a ticket for 9mph over lol. Since then it's one wheel and away we go..

Is there an "autotrader" for bikes. Wife forbids it, but I may get a Busa mistress.

A MD State Trooper was killed pursuing a fleeing motorcyclist recently. If they find the motorcyclist, he'll be charged with murder. I don't agree with running or chasing, but that's the reality of the laws.

I hope your friend never ends up in that situation.

I've been street riding since the late 80s. I have never been given a ticket on my bike. Plenty of roadside lectures but I'm ticket free.

Marcus,
I used to race with the Haydens' a loooonnnggg time ago. They were little kids on Honda 125's back then. We didn't race in the same class but a friend of mine did.
I remember my friend coming back to the pits after a race talking about how frustrating it was. He would pull them down the straightaways, but they would pass him in the corners.
