Re: Does this bike make me look...

You look pretty fast to me. You know, that bike did not appeal to me at all when released online, but it is certainly growing on me. Oh well, I already bought the 954, so I will wait until 2005 at least before upgrading.

No gear, no eyewear... nope, it makes you look like a squid

Nice Wolverine look. You just need a leather jacket and some adamantium claws

The reach feels good, but a bit longer than my 954...and the tank feels HUGE!!! It is not jumping at me...I would definitely not buy one without a test ride. No early deposits for me...I will wait and see...but the bike does look a HELL of alot better in person than in pictures...they had all three at the show, the silver, red and black one....the black one looked the best, but would be a pain to keep clean...I would probably go for the silver one...(matching leathers and all.....)

Re: Does this bike make me look...

Considering our Cdn dollar is lower then the American we need some luck so if we obtain all colours, like in '00 (where I picked Black & Silver), then great. Still I intend to hold off a few yrs & keep on riding my '00 for a few more yrs at least. LOL

Re: Does this bike make me look...

If I were in the market (and I'm not), I'd wait 6 months or a year. If the HP is down from the R1 etc, Honda will probably drop the price like they did on the 929 and 954. There's a lot about the new blade that I like.
