Ok, so some of you are aware that I'm getting a motorcycle soon, so I've been looking at different bikes. Of course I can't afford a Sprint ST brand new, but I have been considering it as my second bike in a few years. It's a water cooled 3 cylinder 1050cc engined bike with optional ABS brakes and all kinds of good sport touring goodies. I really don't need to say much, let the bike speak for itself.
In terms of performance, it's only mildly more powerful than the Bike I'm getting, a mid 90s CBR900RR. It's also mildly heavier, and probably won't be as handling savvy as the Honda either, but it's not a sportbike either. It's longer and heavier and it's designed to be comfortable for long relaxing rides as well as fun for canyon carving and the like.

Not trying to hate on you Trigg, but you crashed a car with a lot less acceleration than that in the canyons, a bike that is that fast and powerful? I understand that you probably wouldn't ride too fast, and what not, but i'm just saying. Wouldn't want you to crash on that thing might fall off a drop or something crazy.

Trigg, if you drop that bike, I'm taking it away from you. It's pretty light... just needs to be lowered a bit for me... :P
