    Cool I have the feeling this is one fast trike.

    Maybe one day the planets will align properly and Iíll be able to ride again. Until then I guess I can still dream about it.

    I've been seeing more and more moto-trikes around over the past year, they seem to be growing in popularity.

    Same here. Some are pretty stylish.

    It’s debatable if the Hyabusa or the Kawasaki 1400 is the fastest stock streetbike out right now but either way I bet that bike will pull both font wheels off the ground, if it wasn’t for the extended swingarm that is.

    I’ve ridden my friends modified Hyabusa and that thing was a beast. Hurricane Katrina took it away from him though. That and his other bike too.

    Fastest bike Ive seen hands down, is the new zx10 kawi. Ive watched a stock one trash a modified 2006 r1, a very modified 2007 r1, a track prep gsxr 1000, and our friends busa without a problem. Now if only they could work on the looks.

    That was my friendís other bike. A GSXR 1000. It got along real good too. He favored Suzuki and I favored Kawasaki. I had a ZX11 and sold it to buy my Ducati Monster750. Big, BIG mistake going down in size.

    I will refuse to buy a Ducati. There are 3 of them at my house now, a 1198, a streetfighter, and a 696 monster. Of the three the monster is the only one that has not had a long stay in the service department. Sunday the streetfighter just up and shut off, 5 miles from the middle of nowhere. It just got delivered to the shop. The 1198 spent its first month in the shop because it had trouble starting in the morning. They change the ecu, and went through 2 batteries, just to be told by Ducati that they could not do anything about it. One friend has a 996s that spends more time in the shop than at the house. They are beautiful bikes and amazing when they are RUNNING RIGHT. I will just stick with my cbr. The zx11 are fast as hell to.

    I would not have owned my Ducati had I not wrenched on bikes for a living I would never had bought it. I had problems with the starter relay from damn near day one. Now my ZX11 was far from stock. I damn near killed myself on it too. Hereís a picture of it after I wrecked it and fixed it.
