    R6 is a terrible street bike, lack of torque down low and uncomfortable af riding. Naked bikes are usually the opposite, hence why the naked sales are going up and Honda and Suzuki are killing off 600 supersports.

    Dead set on riding a R6, buy a used one and take it to the track where it shines.

    .

    2 things

    1) Who the hell is still buying these liter SS bikes?

    They feel justified in completely revamping those?


    2) And apparently "not to mention the current trend of buying on credit instead of cash, the Japanese are slowly losing their battle on price, with riders opting to pay a little bit more each month in order to have the absolute best that the market avails"

    My instincts have proven to be true.

    The trend of buying on credit instead of buying a more affordable bike that one might be able to pay cash for instead has more to do with two things:

    1- The "I want it, and I want it now" mentality that is getting more common in the <30 crowd.

    2- Cheap interest rates.

    3- People who don't even have the slightest clue how much financing really costs them anyways, they just see "$50 Biweekly!" on the tag and think "Wow, I can afford that, that's super cheap!". They've no clue that financing that toy ends up costing them many thousands of extra dollars over the life of the term, over and above the actual cost of the bike.

    $1900 for my brand new Ducati at 27 is so blessed...all these posts remind me of the time I was a kid paying $3500 for a 250. I always knew all I had to do was make it through the danger years unscathed and there would be light at the end of the tunnel. Now I'm paying just a bit more for a car and two bikes, here you've really got to do your time and pay to play. The Ducati is on a standalone policy too which at that rate is almost unheard of.

    The catch is my company only insures riders on SS's if they're over 25 with an M for at least 4 years. There seems to not be may riders on supersports that fit that bill apparently, they either want SS's right away or are stupid lazy bastards that ride out their M2's until they expire and start all over again.

    So I guess it was just a hoax when I heard people complaint about the housing market.

    I dont know i see many old dudes financing those heavy chrome machines we call harleys.

    Why just now i was riding and saw 2 old people riding their harleys like morons, at the last minute they decided they wanted to go right instead of left, so they proceeded to move their behemoths(With their feet, not feathering the clutch like they should have) infront of the cars that were waiting behind them, obstructing traffic, putting themselves in danger and giving riders a bad name.
