    What bike to buy for next spring?

    Yeah, its winter, thinking of a new bike for spring though, something really different. I don't like the Harleys, or the clone bikes just too many of the same bike around.

    I've already had a 2005 American Iron horse Texas chopper, that was different, though fuel tank is small, and not much range, looks big, but its on an angle so you can only stuff so much fuel into it, and too much chrome to clean.

    Owned a 2007 Hayabusa, too fast and too many speeding tickets.

    Owned a 2006 Honda Rune, very fast, but too heavy

    Now I'm putting my sights on a Travertson V-Rex, anyone know who happens to have one?

    You can see one on travertson.com

    I think this is the perfect bike for you. Definitely not Harley, no problem with too much chrome, don't think it will be too fast and it is a stripped down model so it won't be too heavy.
    What do you think?

    How can you use the same word fast comparing a Rune and a Hayabusa?

    My co worker has a Valkyrie and I can dust him at will with my 'lil Kawi ZZR600. A 'busa will flat out dust my 600.

    God I'm having enough problems trying to get my employers to buy me a ****ed bandsaw..... never mind a jet boat....

    *MY* next bike is going to be a Kawi ZX-10R.... 0-180 in 880yards! hehehehehehehe

    YOu'd be amazed at todays modern 600cc bikes. My 750 is factory rated at hp to the wheel when it came out, then three years later the 600's are getting rated **** near the same, but with les torque EVERYWHERE...really peaky bikes, but fun and heap to ride.

    I love all motorcycles, but you won't catch me pushing a harley, i ride jap!

    The rocket is again too odd looking,

    I'm thinking of another full rake chopper or that V-Rex. I've decided that my company is going to buy it for me, so price is no object.

    My company was kind enough to buy me a jet drag boat this year and a newer F-350 crewcab, so a new bike wouldn't be out of the question

    One of the benifits of being a mechanic, I get a deal on everything.
