The humongoid 929 trunk :D

I don't know if I can upgrade to a CBR 1K since I sometimes need to carry stuff, but hate to use tank bags, etc.

Today I crammed in:
1 towel - regular size, not a little tea towel
1 pair of shorts - nylon
1 t-shirt
1 pair of sandals
1 pair of underwear (briefs)
1 CD with jewel cass
1 plastic bag

Couldn't do that with a lot of sportbikes. Sigh, I love it.

....yes I'm hating b/c I can't afford the new 1k.

Be fast or be last.

I wouldn't buy (or not buy) because of the trunk, but when I was street riding, I sure did like it. You can get a Burrito and a couple of liter bottles of nice beer in there too.

Re: The humongoid 929 trunk :D

I made the switch from my 929 to the 1K. I remeber all the stuff I used to be able to get in the 929. Now I have room for my insurance, registration, and sunglasses. The space leaves alot to be desired but I don't miss it that much, It is a 1000RR!!!

The trunk is something that I definately love about the 900-929rr's.

I know its a sportbike, but damn it's nice to have that storage area.

Re: The humongoid 929 trunk :D

The trunk on the 929 is one main reason I still have mine. My girlfriend is hooked on the silver R1 and Black 1000rr. She's offered a few times that if I trade in the 929 she'd cover the diffrence for either of those bikes (in those colors....deals off if I wanted red). I must be an idiot, I still have the 929 (with the trunk crammed full of stuff). I just have this feeling I'd regret selling the 929, regardless of what replaces it.

Re: The humongoid 929 trunk :D

You know I agree. I sold off my first 929 I now have the 04 R1, Which really is the best bike I have ever owned, and I have owned many. Anyway I missed the 929 and always really liked the Erion so I picked up a real low milage one that needed some plactic help. Well now it's MINT and I am so glad I did they really are super fun bikes to ride.

Momentary thread jack, so Diamond, you're saying the 2001 929 is more fun to ride than your 2004 R1? The 929 is a great bike, but I didn't think someone would regret/miss it after going to any of the 04 litre bikes. Unless you're talking ergo's or sitting behind the tank versus on top of it.[threadjack over]

I saw a 2004 GSXR 750 and was shocked with how little trunk space it had and these don't even have the underseat exhaust!

Re: The humongoid 929 trunk :D

My friend that traded his 01 Erion for a 02 R1 regretted it. He now has a 04 R1, he doesn't seem as into the bike as he was the 929. Was always out on the 929 or talking about it, the R1 you forget he even has because it's usually sitting in a shed.

Don't get me wrong here guys I REALLY love my R1 and I can ride it faster in almost all situations. Keep in mind I don't ride to commute, I ride twisty mountain roads only and only for fun. The thing is that with the R1 it's serious business all the time and with the CBR I can do almost the same with what seems less effort I like the fact that the cbr sits lower which makes me fell I can man handle it more even thought the tank is much wider.I'm 6'2" 200 so my legs fit the R1 better but that doesn't seem to play a big part as I don't do real long rides. So I guess what I'm trying to say is if I go out with friends and it's gonna be a testosterone match I will surly be on my R1 but if I go by myself for the shear fun of it threw the real tight stuff I just hop on the good ole 929.I wouldn't trade either of them.

Re: The humongoid 929 trunk :D

I've been toying getting rid of the 929, but there is not another bike out there that I can smuggle 4 illegal aliens all packed into the trunk across the border.

I know what most people here have been saying about something different with the 929. I really have thought about getting rid of it, but for what? I've ridden my buddies ZX-10 more often and harder than he has, and I like it but I'm not floored by it. The R1's have never really made me want one, and I have had some scary moments on the track with 2 generations of the Suzuki 1k (Horrible brakes and akward ergos) My 929 will keep the pace of the newer bikes (in 99%) of the situations on the street and maybe 90% on the track, it feels like home, worry free, just a solid bike. I've owned several bikes (10) and the 929 is just hands down, my favorite..... hard to give that up

Re: The humongoid 929 trunk :D

Another thread jack, Diamond, how the hell are you? If it eases your pain any, your original can is still riding around with me on my 929.... Oh, and I still have your left mirror on my right side. Glad to see you back posting..

And I got junk in my truck.. It also holds the salsa when I go pick up chips and salsa from Chili's for lunch. Mmmmm....

DUDE!!!! It's great to hear your still around. I've been trolling around here for quite some time and aside for Conq I really didn't see to many of the old familiar faces. It's great to see you around. We should get together and do a Ride/Hooters thing. Good to see my parts are still tooling around. If you need some more give me a call I have a garage full after this last rebuild.

Sorry for the thread jack!
