Info: Ever ridden a heavy machine gun? Ever feel your body separating from your head? Look, no further. This is a bike, which truly comes alive with the punch of the starter button. The fearless tremble from the ancient evil awaken. Think you know how to ride? Maybe you know nothing. Find out...if you dare. Sometimes..you have to return to the beginning to understand you were on the right track.

Info: This little baby had 1800 miles, when I bought her. Good handling and a comfy ride. I sold her with 3000 miles on the clock, but it has been the sexiest bike I have owned to this point.
2002 Kawasaki ZX-12R

Sold: Aug 2003
Info: This bike was a monster. I had to completely recalibrate my brain to the speed of it. Once you twisted the throttle, everything became a blur. Awesome power and below average handling. After riding this Godzilla, I feel that I can handle any bike :)
2003 Honda CBR 900

Sold: Jul 2004
Info: The CBR954RR taught me how much more important handling and suspension was than a powerful motor such as the ZX-12r´s. It was lighter by 70 pounds to the 12R and changed direction, like no other sportbike I have ridden of this class. It was so comfortable, that I took a 3500 mile trip from Chicago to Colorado and back. Extremely versatile bike...
2004 Honda CBR 1000 RR

Purchased: Jul 2004
Sold: Jan 2005
Info: This bike is the apex of refinement, as far as race bikes go. It handles smooth and predictable, unlike the more nervous 954RR. Extremely user-friendly, it lets me use all of its power, without trading concentration. Leans into turns by itself and makes me smile every time I come out of them :)...Excellent power and unbelievable, confidence-inspiring handling...
2002 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R

Purchased: Nov 2004
Sold: Oct 2008
Info: This is Eddie Lawson´s replica from the 1980...bored out to 1164cc with all the power and torque of a freight train. This bike handles very good in the city, although a bit heavy. The standard upright position is quite comfy and allows better leverage at the handlebars. The character of the engine is exhiliarating, paired with the evil anger of the full Muzzy system...
2004 Aprilia RSV Mille Tuono

Purchased: Jan 2004
Sold: Sep 2007
Info: Evil reincarnated...Makes me smile every time before I get on it and after I get off it. The handling of this bike tops everything I have ridden previously. The power delivery is smooth, although abrupt inputs will point the front wheels skyward. This one was a keeper...

Sold: Aug 2011
Info: Power, handling, a voiceless command...This is what this bike embodies. You think of where you want to be...and it takes you there in the next moment. A Honda is a Honda. It becomes a part of the rider''s body and an extension of his will. Look, lean, roll...and you are already there.
2008 Kawasaki ZZR 600 / ZX6

Purchased: May 2008
Sold: Aug 2011
Info: A nice and comfortable everyday bike. Good pillion seat and decent underseat storage. Suspension too soft for my liking. Kinda hefty for a 600cc, however handling was decent.
