Thumbs up Other bikes owned

Thought I'd post up a thread to discuss previous bikes we've owned.

I was going through some of my old stuff recently and found this. Thought I'd share it. It is a dyno chart of my 2001 GSXR1000. I owned this in (late) 2001 after my 2000 RC51.

Check it out. What a beast. Incredible compared to the RC51 in every facet. Bear in mind this bike became available when the RC51 was current and only out for one year. It was over 50 lbs lighter than the RC51 as well. It dyno'd notably higher than other gsxr1k's, and on multiple dyno's. I account for that by the break-in and the mods I put on it. Break in is very important imo. I also attached a picture; miss that bike.

Bike had Full Ti-Force exhaust, short stack mod, TRE, custom PCIII map. Plus ohlins damper, Gilles Rearsets, vortex clip ons, Goodridge SS braided brake lines, AFAM +2, oem 02 black wheels, 02 clutch judder spring update, no-cut sliders (was a nice bike design allowing for that).

Thats a great looking bike.

My first bike was a 2005 Yamaha R6. Had a full titanium GPR exhaust, BMC filter, PCIII, and a hyperpro steering damper. Was a great first bike.

When the S1000RR came out in 2010, i bought one. Was a fun bike, but i just wasn't nuts about it. Traded it off a year and a half later for a Triumph Daytona 675R.

To me, this bike is an absolute animal! I can't even begin to imagine what the new liter bikes must feel like.

I've owned well over 30 bikes and I regret selling many of them for one reason or another, but some really stand out and make me wanna slap myself silly

My 142rwhp Erion built bulletproof 97 900RR


Pristine condition 1981 Maxim-I 650 that I finally sold in like 1992 and the new owner immediately started doing burnouts with it and eventually got it impounded in some sort of drug bust or something...



And the best streetbike ever built!
2002 Honda 919




& then there were the ones that I didn't actually own I just got to keep them for development work etc like this K5 GSXR. Took me over 3 years to uh return this one LOL The front end alone was about $10,000 worth of suspension, brakes and wheel... Just an absolutely amazing bike to ride under any circumstances from a 1200 mile road trip to a sprint race it was just an extremely capable bike with amazing versatility and very forgiving to ride with the exception of the brakes which had to be treated with lots of respect



& the 848,I didn't want to give that one up either. The 848 is the only Ducati I have ever seriously thought of owning. Makes the same horsepower as the RC51 and weighs 72lbs less

I like 848. What was the maintenance like on it? Were the valve clearance checks every 6k?

The K1/K2 started a pattern which culminated in the K5/K6. Powerful, torquey, light weight.
After the K6, they became heavier, and more powerful at the expense torque.
Which is why the K5/K6 so desired as track bike.
I wouldn't mind having one, but most are beat to death by now, especially the gearbox.
