Default Not a Victory..

It may not be a Vic but, I think the RC8 is pure s*x on wheels. Is it really worth that much more than a GSX-R1K, R1, or ZX10? Maybe, if for no other reason than it is just great looking.


Time to start saving for a new mistress...

A little jagged and orange for sex, but I'm sure it'd be a blast. Body positioning is also too committed to be much of a road bike, for me anyway, but it'd be killer in 20 minute sessions on a track.

I was contemplating one of these before the Vic:



The seat was just too high to be practical for mini-me. I see they now have a lowering kit for it. Maybe next time...

I think the Yamaha FZ-09 is the interesting one... $7,990 price tag... three cylinder 850cc

Surely the most practical of the bunch. From what I've read it is a really great machine except that throttle response is really abrupt.

I've always been a fan of naked bikes. I haven't been really keeping up with them too much lately but that one looks pretty nice. The three cylinder could be pretty fun if it's like the Triumph Speed Triple.

Speaking of KTM, this should push HC over the edge:

I've been on a KTM kick a little while now and have never owned one. The RC8 would be amazing but maybe just a but too focused on killing lap times. Perhaps I can talk Household 6 into a Super Duke instead. It looks pretty hot and a bit more street friendly.

With MSC the bike just about rides itself! I guess I wouldn't be kicking out a spinning rear tire anymore...
