My bike is faster than your bike

Zoom zoom!!!



I just picked this baby up today, and HAD to come show it off. It's a '99 Honda CBR600F4 with some cool extras and it goes, uh, REALLY FAST. I'm hoping fast enough to outrun my Visa bill. So far though, I'd say it's worth every penny. It'll hold me over nicely until my knee has stopped buggin' me and I can get back on my Stratos.

My 1970's road bike with headtube shifters and idiot levers will pwn your motorcycle anyday

Damn nice bike.

Maybe you could. All you'd have to do is be crazier than me. But I wouldn't guess that bike is necessarily faster. I mean, mine's an F4, and clearly a higher number is better

This looks like a god place for this little vid.

Well in canada, you would also be looking at km/hr. So yes, your speedo would also show a higher number.

Is it me or did anyone notice him burning his clutch for about 15 seconds after he reached his top end?

Those F4's are hot. That's the first year they were fuel injected, I think. I just got done getting mine running after sitting for years. The brand new ones are freaking beautiful.

Your bike smells bad and makes a lot of noise.
