    okay,
    Id like someone to explain to me the key differences between bikes such as gixxers and ZX's vs. V-Twin sport bikes (tillers, SV's, etc)

    Obviously one is heavier and has a v-twin engine in it (less top end, a bit slower)

    But what else?

    Some are made in Japan by nips. Some are made here by people who care about your country.

    you already explained it.

    the twins have less power. they are usually a lot cheaper than their counterpart I4s, because they are slower and thus dont need the higher end suspension.

    they just cut corners on the builds. its not a hard concept to see why they are cheaper

    man this country can only make a fucking tank or jet. we can't make no vehicle that travels on asphault and competes. the vette is the closet damn thing we have.

    like all the top bikes are either japanese or german. i assume doucati is german correct me if im wrong.

    any of the bike crew, as well as people who even have the slightest knowledge about bikes, will tell you to get an sv650 or ex500 as a first bike

    when you don't suck at it anymore, then it's time to sell and get a better bike

    if you arent a tool, get anything you want. If you like the way it looks and rides, no reason not to. Just dont be an assclown learning to ride on a 1300.

    :rofl: at buying an American sportbike and wanting to compete with the Japanese big 4.

    For the threadstarter, get an SV650 or an EX500, pre-owned, and ride the wheels off of it.

    who the fuck are you to doubt my typing abilities? You think that these posts are made up? They won't seem so fake when I fail to stop at a stop sign while you are crossing the street some day. then you will experience pain for the first real time in your life

    well you know what, i dont need your shit. i'm sick of the way you act online, it's a pathetic ruse to make up for your lack of a social life. yeah i may seem strange but that doesn't give you the right to think you're better than me? and what's up with bringing up your genitalia for comparison in nearly every thread you post in? do you really feel accomplished by your genes? yeah i thought so motherfucker. well you need to listen up. i'm not going to deal with your shit anymore, this goes beyond fazle's handling, im taking this shit to the real world. let's see how you act then you pussy ass bitch, i'll fuck you up so bad youll be crying and shit but if you start bleeding youre on your own cuz i aint helping you clean that shit up
    got it faggot? dont even think i dont mean this, i will fuck your mother until she dies from aids
