Crotch Rockets v.2

Another Crotch Rocket thread. Lets just say I would do almost anything for one. But a friend of mine, Eric, is buying his GSX-R before spring break. He said he'd let me ride basically whenever I wanted to. But me only being 14 and no license, I'm not too sure about that.

Should I take the risk when he gets it? He's getting his uncles 2001 Suzuki GSX-R 600.

If I can get pics I'll post em up.

If you've never ridden a motorcycle before, you will most likely lay it down (this especially applies with anything over 500 cc)... which is not very cool, and will probably get around to your parents. Wait and some kind of used 200 ninja, wouldn't be that bad laying that down compared to a Gixxer. I remember, even after riding dirt bikes for 4 years, I took a 1000 cc gsxr out on the street and almost dropped it multiple. What you're thinking = not a good idea.
Edit: above might be a good idea, only if you've ridden before, if not, you'll have problems turning.

I've ridden a ZX-7 before. Gave the damn thing too much gas pulled me right up. Probably one of the scariest things thats ever happened to me. Luckily I hit the back brake and let go of the throttle. I also took a Ninja 200R out for a ride, so much easier than that damn ZX-7.

Fastest I've gone is 65, which was the highway speedlimit. Up in South Dakota my uncle has the ZX-7 and he lets me ride it sometimes when I visit. He's on a farm out in the middle of nowhere.

Mom hates motorcycles so I can't get one until I move out.

I got a pocket bike, which is good practice for throttle control, brake control, and turning. But I've crashed so much on that little thing, and even only being 15 inches off the ground, it still hurt like a *****.

dropping bikes sucks...Ive dropped more dirt bikes than some people have seen. But then again Ive riden quite a few. Big bikes is fun to down...except not. my uncle dropped a brand new 03 honda 1000rr when they first came out..he was..lets say pissed.

He just painted it and sold it for more thanks to the hot paint job. pretty funny

Ouch... That had to sting.

I saw a guy flip his 600f4i over doing a stoppie.

I just hate seeing 16 year olds getting some crazy rice rocket without a very good handle of bikes. They usually end up getting scrapped off walls. My coach started on trash bikes, and moved from there. It just seems most people act a fool on a fast bike when they're new to it.

Get a Ninja 200 because, it seems, you don't have that much experience... stay with that... they have a high resale value, so you'll be fine when you get a bigger one.

Be careful...bikes are extremely dangerous. I was just like you a couple of years ago, wanted to get one ASAP, but I relized how crazy they are...and I'll hold off on them for awhile. Man I hear about motorcycle accidents around here like once a week, and half of the time a car crashes into them. I have close friend who lost his leg and was in a colma (sp?) for a couple of monthes, and he had been riding for many years and was very good. He also lost most of the use of his right hand and suffered some brain damage. My brother has a 2k3 (I think) R6 and he fliped it doing about 60mph the first week, he doesn't have a license so I advise him not to ride it when ever he wants too...and take his truck instead. And are you willing to take responsibility for the damage to your friends bike when you drop it? Cus everybody no matter what will crash, just a matter of when and how hard. Be careful.

If its your first time on a 600, you're probably gonna lay it down. I remember when I rode my grandpa's suzuki 600, and that thing scared the crap outta me when it was my first time. First time I took a G'ixxer for a spin (600) still scared the crap outta me. I can ride a bike, yet I prefer four wheels to two, just on acount of the fact I don't wanna be scraped off of the pavement. If it's your first time, you're gonna have an experience, even if you don't wreck, you'll still be a little worried, that's how I was when I rode my first bike. But, people are different from others, and you could do well, or you could trash the bike. It's your call, man. Just don't kill yourself.

Yeah I was scared when I first rode. (Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7)

I've got some good experiance though. Its just the ZX-7 is an older bike and these newer bikes seem a lot more powerful.

I'll have on most the gear anyways.

If you ride dirt bikes, your gonna wreck one. Wrecking one isn't near as big a deal as a crotch rocket, though.

As for me, I rode a Honda 959 for my first time. Way too much for me. Still fun, though. I figured as good as I was on a dirt bike, this wouldn't be too hard. I found out riding one is nothing like a dirt bike.

I like crotch rockets, but I don't think I'll ever want to own one. Too dangerous.

My dad was telling me about the time when he rode probably one of the fastest bikes at the time about 20 years ago.

It was the first year they did a V-Twin. So the 600 class was actually faster than the 1000 and such. Well his friend told him to take it on the freeway and when he got into about 4th or 5th gear, to give it all it's got. Well he was like what does that do? And the dude was just liek you'll see.

Well lets just say my dad literally almost **** his pants.

The GSX-R 600 holds a better time on a road track than the 750. 1000 and Hayabusas are fast bikes. You sound kind of like me 1337, the first motorcycle I rode was an old Ninja 10r. thing was fast as hell, luckily I had ridden dirt bikes and knew how to turn... the accel was a little bit crazy, and the clutch is quite a bit different. Dead serious, don't ride anything higher than basically a 500 if you've never really ridden before... 200 is definetely fast enough, if that's what you're worried about.

i had my liscense for less then a month then i hoped on a zx6rr and lost my liscense for a year maby longer being a ass. I grew up around a lot motorcycles. If your new dont hop on a 600 i dont care what anyone says lol... i know ppl feel like a puss on a 250. I know a guy eric that started with a 250 ninja got 1500 trade (very high mi) towards a RC51 which if your unfirmiliar it's Hondas 1000cc missle (nicky hadens superbike) he had this bike for maby 4 months without laying it down or anything once, but he never unleashed it. One day i was tailing him on a 600f4i (honda) when he suddenly devloped a burst of retard and FULLY pinned the throttle causing him to ride maby a foot high accidental wheelie for 30 yards before the bike looped out and slid down the road into a light pole. Eric looped out at from around 80 mph wearing swim shorts a tank top and his helmet (safety first).... Basiclyy the moral is if you start riding which is a great thing don't be influenced by this bull**** bikerboy image where some hokey has a 1300 and goes 180 with a brain bucket and no eye protection or where a 90lb chick is on a hyabusa riding high speed wheelies. Take it slow Eric went from a $2000 250 ninja to a $10000 1000cc rc51 and look what happened, thats asking for trouble. 250-600-1000 thats how you learn. You devlope a sense for the diffrent bikes. I am 17 and i never rode any thing bigger then a 636 kawy because i know my limits. Then u got these posers that never rode before and say how bad they want a 1100 or 1300 so they can do wheelies like ruff ryders..those are the kids you see on the news and in obituaries.

Media is a bad influence..

The only reason i preach this is because i know a lot of ppl that are off the wall crazy and give sport bikers a bad rep. If you have the oppurtunity to ride your buddys gsxr spend alot of time on the back and if you feel ok about it drive around a parking lot no harm in that.

Yeah I'll say it again. I've riden a Kawasaki ZX-7 a few times.

I'm planning on starting with a 600. Either an f4i or a GSX-R. Older model and probably slap some Yoshimura Exhuast on it. Not for performance really but for the orgasmic sound and looks.

If I'm just cruising I'll always wear my helmet, but if I'm going to be doing some serious riding I'll have all the gear.

I would like to get a Kawasaki Ninja 250 when I'm 16, then get a GSX-R 600 when I'm 18 and out of the house. But it's just my mother won't let me at all. But still for a small bike, the 250 is a pretty quick bike.

eric beat the beans out of his.. He did something to overthrow the limiter since he was cheap and didnt buy the bypass thing and you cant just take it out cuz its built into the cdi. But he said since whatever mod he did it worked now with no limiter he said it maxed to where the needle was bouncing back and forth in the red zone. He rode that thing for 3 years with the same back tire which wasent naturally worn down he spun a lot. When he traded it in you could see the wire beed on both sides of the tire.

my slice of homie kyle bought a new 600 gixxer and rode it all over popin wheelies and i was the only one that told him to pay the 50$ for frame sliders...cheap ass never did and eventually laid it down and screwerd up his faring and scowl now he's out i assume around 1100. i think those teflon sliders are the best upgrade. the pipes are nice but i wouldsnt ride without those sliders
