As pointless as Copeland's threads always are, it's nice to see something non-political. <p>Way to go, ace.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>JoeLvo</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>How do you find the Yamaha compared to the Ducatis?</TD></TR></TABLE><p>You know as well as I do that those Ducatis will EAT the Yamahas all day long <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (AbsolutZer0)

Only thing about the Busa that I can't get with is it's sheer size. Otherwise, who doesn't want a factory beast like a busa? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

heh, I've recently been stricken with the street-fighter bug, which has forced me to accept ugliness in the quest for nastiness <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Copeland)

Mmmm, trellis frame.<p>Why do I like that so much? Isn't it a compromised method for constructing a sport-bike frame? <p>but I don't care - it looks so, well, industrial and crafted.

<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Saucy</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Hayabusa FTW.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>I've never loved the Busa... I don't see the appeal.. 1300cc, heavy, long bike... What's really the difference between that an a ZX-14, or any other larger bike? I would want something lighter weight with a fast revving 1000cc or something. And although stretched and lowered bikes LOOK cool, I still prefer the smaller rocket-types.<p>I'd take an R6 for a starter bike, followed by an R1 once I've figured out how not to kill myself or involve the police in a high speed chase daily, then I'd move into a nice Duc also. <p>A friend of mine has a 748.. pretty popular older bike around here... It sounds ridiculous (in a good way), and is pretty quick for someone's first bike.

Given a choice I would go with a Ducati over the Busa, but the Busa has that "Ghostrider" appeal, its the fastest street bike around with decent pricing.<p>What do people think of Aprilla?

LOVE Aprilia. I like a lot of their more naked street bikes.<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.maxmoto.co.uk/images/Aprilia%20Shiver.jpg" BORDER="0">
