Re: First sports bike
thats a real tough bike for sure!! they are wicked fun to ride and you really get something on one of the older bikes that the new ones just cant give you. so much more involving and just raw! lotta lotta fun like i said. if its in good shape thats a nice price too. your a pretty tall guy by the sound of it n sport bikes are a bit more cramped up and uncomfortable by nature. of the sport bikes tho id say its pretty comfy in general. i mean its by no means gonna be like anything youve ridden before if your experience is with cruisers but its by design. it probably wouldnt make thr best sport touring bike in the world either but im sure people still use it for that. its bigger than a 600 but its no 1100 either. honestly man its one of the coolest sport bikes ever and with your riding experience youll be fine on it. just be prepared because it might not be a 2014 cbr1000 in terms of performance but they are fast for sure. you cant just crank it to full throttle n hold on like on a cruiser, the 900 is a wheelie machine if ever there was one so throttle control is paramount. just one of the many many reasons a sport bike is so fun! id personally recommend you buy it man. like i said if its in pretty good condition, even if its got some miles on it thats not a bad price at all. worst comes to worse you could just sell it. probably even make more than you paid for it. this is again just my opinion but the 90's model cbr900 is just a real real fun bike to ride with tons of character n all the "sport" anyone really ever needs. hell im excited for you if you cant tell. just respect it man, obviously your not a kid jumping on a cbr900 for the first bike and in that case id pretty much strongly advise against it, but just be aware the cbr900 is no honda shadow or anything like it! its a whole lotta bad ass n anyone who says otherwise just hasnt ridden one or doesnt know what there talking about. let us know what you decide on it n if you get it throw some pictures up of the bike and you with that big smile you will be having!
