What is it with motorcycle ads?

Seems like every bike I look at says something stupid like, no BS, serious inquires only, no tire kicking, don't waste my time. Give me a friggen break, you're are not selling a learjet bro.

If you end up considering a Ducati as you narrow down your list I would stick to the 2v motors. 695, 696, 796, 1100, S2R (both 800 and 1000cc)

Otherwise you get into the 4v desmos and when maintence rolls around for valve clearance checks/adjustments, it'll be less work if you do it yourself, and
A lot less $$ if you have it done. The 2v motors will make plenty of power for street riding plenty. The 4v is what they put in the hyper sports - 998,999, 748, 749, S4R etc. very powerful but more work and $.

The amount of power on tap on that thing was crazy. You can smash the throttle on an entrance ramp and feel like you're on a supersport but they have power all over the powerband. I don't know how you beat them for real world power and overall value.

Yeah, they probably did. It was a little weird to sell both classes at a dealer like Harley. I can't remember the arrangement with Buell and HD, but I think Eric had some restrictions in what he could do etc. something like that...can't remember

Yep. Gimme tons of low end torque and a nice smooth power curve and I'll take it everyday of the week.

You ever rode a Tuono? I rode the Shiver at Renos, and I came back. The owner was like "what did you think. Hey, you should ride the Tuono". His daughter pulled it around ....I could hear that baby start up. Had Akro cans...sounded amazing.

That thing would be a ticket machine in terms of speeding and how easy it is to lift the front wheel from about anywhere in the power band.

From what I read, he had to use 45 degree twins and they had to be air cooled, to fit with the brand

I got two bikes in my sights and both are 2006. One is an r-1 raven with lots of after market goodies with 13k miles on it and it looks brand new. The guy really needs to sell it and is in the middle of nowhere so it takes a could hours to get to him. If I get this it will be somewhere between $5,500 and 6k. YOUr NADA value on that bad boy has to be at least $7,500. The other bike is a 2006 ZX-14 with 10k on it. The add ons on this are:

Power Commander III With Brocks Performance Map Upgrade- $350
Brocks Performance Titanium CT Megaphone Full System- $1895
.
FYI...that thing is going to be super loud . Like...really loud.

Ah ok. I thought it was another style cone. I rode with a few guys after a bike night and a dude had a zx10 with an exhaust that looked like an ice cream cone upside down. Mother of god was it loud

A lot depends on your age. Driving history as well (obviously) and how they categorize the bike. The insurance company my wife works for won't insure sport bikes above 600cc, and even that won't do so unless they're over 25.

I think full coverage on mine (state farm) was about 15/mo...I was 33 when i had it. Around here they factor in the non riding months,or so I hear.

However, the kid I sold mine to was in on his third bike in two yrs, had crashed the other two and had multiple pricey tickets amd he told me his insurance for full coverage on the bike was 225/mo. Shit you not
