PLEASE NOTE! THE MUSIC IS FROM A ROYALTY FREE CD THAT I OWN!
Honda VTR1000 Superhawk Intro
This is my new bike. It's a 2002 Honda Superhawk 996.
I sold off my Honda Magna Gen 3, and got this beast. It's a V-Twin Sport
Bike and it's pure badass. The engine is amazing. This bike is my Daily
Driver. Last year, I rode my Magna every day, in all weather. So then I
picked up this one because I wanted something that wasn't a Cruiser. I had
several options, but after one test ride - this was the bike for me. The
V-Twin has an amazing amount of power that suits the way I ride. It's
light and agile, feeling like a 600 and not a 996, it's also nice and
narrow... like a much smaller bike... until you twist the wrist.
Since I picked up this bike, it has quickly become my very favorite bike
I've ever had or every ridden. Ever.
UPDATE: After I slid this bike down the highway from being clipped by a
semi that wanted to be in my lane, coming at me head on... it was pretty
wrecked. But I was offered 5 Large for it so I sold it and got my ZX-11.
Having sold this bike, I have to say it was a mistake. I will have to look
at getting another one. The ZX-11 that replaced it might be faster, but it doesn't have the Character
that the Superhawk has. I really miss that Engine.
how NOT to ride the dragon/ us129.RC51 blowing turns and riding over his head.
Here is a short run of Sid Mosley( helmet cam--r6s) following riding buddy
Andy Youngs on US HWY 129, DRAGON, Deals Gap. We catch up to a fella on an
RC51 riding way over his head and in my opinion was about to kill himself.
Play close attention to him wobbling and such. It was an extremely cold
day so traction was not great. I was scared to death i was going to watch
him pitch that beatiful RC51 in the trees. I hate to be a rude, but please
folks... ride within your limits and don't try to ride over your head. If
it would have been a summer day, this guy would have killed himself or
thanks for watching... riding season is almost here!!!!

Honda VTR1000 Firestorm. Short Review.
On the plus side its fairly robust and at a fairly low price. It's sort of
sporty, but almost a sports tourer. Performance is OK but not all that
exciting. I think if you want a sports twin this might not quite make the
grade. If you want a good all rounder for a bargain price then this is the
