    Default what's your favorite bike of all time?

    for older style: mine has gotta be the ZX7-RR (the ones from 1995 /1996).

    I know they're old, but they have the classic look to 'em, and have won so many open class championships in the past.

    my other ultimate fave's are the new kawi 636, and the yamaha YZFR1 (the black flames edition), my friend has a R6 black flames edition, and it's a sweet looking bike!
    When in doubt, pinn'er. :P

    nope.. I mean R7

    ridden by one of the Gobert brothers in WSB before they stopped racing em. You could only buy one directly from Yamaha if you had a racing license.

    They're a few years old. I think they raced em in '00-'01. Not to mention they're like worth $75,000 to buy one today.

    for tech data

    I've seen some ppl who think they're cool and removed the 6 decal from their R6's and threw on a 7. Another silly thing I've seen someone do is redoing the fairings etc on a Hayabusa and calling it an R13 LoL ... Hilarity ensues!

    ok.... so it's european model then...
    that's neat!

    europeans get so much cooler bikes than us... like the fazer 600, and the aprilla two strokes. (although we just started being able to carry some of the aprilla line up here in Canada).

    favorite bike...
    gotta be the yamaha v-max... say what you will about those things, but ive never ridden anything more fun, although the triumph speed triple and kawa klr650 both come close.

    lol, my friend told me to rev the vmax to about 6k and drop it....
    im pretty sure i dislocated one, if not both shoulders

    the speed triple is facking fun just for hooliganing around, and the klr is fun cause its a big ass dirtbike.... noisy, crappy handling, obnoxiously tall.... but so tossable and you can get away with almost anything.


    and what was the name of the japanese dude that rode an R7 for yamaha, got suspended a couple years back for drug use i think.
    haga... hoga... noriyuki haga i think... someone correct me on this one.

    I second the V-Max. It has more style and personality than any other bike in my opinion.
