Re: This Week - 2012 Yamaha VMAX / VMX17: Vote and Discuss

I voted: Awesome There is just something very awesome about the idea behind the V-Max, the original muscle bike ahem.....the Honda V4 Magna's and Sabre' predate the V-Max by a couple of years, if anything, the V-Max was designed to compete against the Honda Magna. If Honda didn't have problems wher...

Re: Has your spring riding seaon started?

New Mexico spring weather has been nothing short of spectacular! We have been hovering in the high 70's and low 80's these past few weeks. Scary actually!

Re: This Week - 2012 Yamaha VMAX / VMX17: Vote and Discuss

I was wondering when the mighty Vmax would be on the "wall". I must say this the most amazing bike I have ever owned! It has incredible power...It is just flat out fast!!!! But the power is not what impressed me. Sure it has amazing horsepower and the torque is out of this world, but it is amazingly...

I kinda like this one. Horsepower seems more than adequate. I'm not much for the naked bike look but it's not bad looking. Cool.

Re: This Week: 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO - VOTE NOW

I thought my reply to "only 100-horsepower!!" was simple and obvious, but I will expand upon what I was saying: power-to-weight ratios... that is what we're talking about, and old engines vs. new engines. Firstly: Power-to-Weight ratio We'll reduce it down to just how much chubbiness does each hors...

Re: This Week: 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO - VOTE NOW

It's pretty hilarious that Markg1 says "only 100hp" while we're looking at this thinking "great". Some people don't know what there missing. They get so used to reading a number and thinking without thinking. If you dont like the looks, there's not much in it, and maybe the V-Rod has lost 200 lbs s...

I have always owned what I consider TRUE power cruisers (Vmax and Vrod). I blame the V65 magna for my hunger for the power. I have never owned a crotch rocket, but if I were to own one it would be this one. I love the way it looks and I don't think there is anything close. I think Yamaha build some...

Just curious what you all think. 1. Honda 2. Yamaha 3. Kawasaki 4. Harley-Davidson 5. Suzuki 6. BMW 7. Ducati 8. Triumph 9...

Re: kawasaki z1000

Thanks guys, I found out more about this bike. It's a 2006 ZR1000. He wants $4500. The only reason that I want to buy it is to resell. I'm not sure what the difference between a z and a zr. I'm also not sure what the market is for used bikes. What do you guys think?

kawasaki z1000

Okay everybody I found a 2009 Kawasaki z1000 with 2500 miles in great condition. They are asking $5000 for it. Is that too much? I did not take it for a test ride but I did sit on it and it was light compared to my Vmax and Vrod. Is it a good bike? Does it handle well? Has anybody ever owned one or ...

Re: What's your best motorcycle MPG?

I went riding with some new buddies. One was riding a BMW 1200 and I was on my Vmax. We were riding real hard in the mountains. By the time it was all said and done and with a passenger my Vmax got 34MPG. I was shocked. My Vmax just turned 2000 miles. Breaking in? Oh the Vmax is faster than the BMW.
