I respect that people like different types of bikes than I do, but Harley guys are often asking me when I'm going to "get a real bike". My reply;

You mean real fast?
Or real reliable?
How about real affordable?

I ride a 2001 CBR600 F4i that I purchased in 2002 for $5,500. There are faster bikes now, but nothing I've seen so far that strikes the balance of everyday comfort and track day performance. This bike has also ruined me for anything with carbs.
